.jiSsNsPB PUBLIC MEETING. A resepectable of the citi- nt of Athcn Athens, whs held on iliel l7tb inst. to consider the propriety ol In.-trct- ing the town authorites, to assist ihe In ferior Court of this county to construct a substantial Bridge over the Oconee river, where the town bridge now stands. Upon motion of Hon. A. Hull, G. Peeples, Intendent. of the town, was called to the Chair, and W. G. Detony, Esq., appointed Secretary. After considerable discusion, it was unanimously resolved, that the Intend* cat and Wardens of the town be instruct- ted, to construct .’he necessary stone piers and abutments for such Bridge, if, in (heir wisdom, such an outlay be~ne- ces&ary to induce the Inferior Court to boffld a substantial bridge thereon. 2.

HtllE Grand Jurors,sworu and empannelled JL for the County of Clarke. f»r February Tvai, liso.\ respectfully offer the following Presentments. We have examined, by a Committee, the books and accounts of the County Treasurer and Tax Collector, and find them neatly and, we think, accurately kept. We find in the hands of the County Treasurer an unexpend ed balance of SI 8.76- We recommend that the Tax Collecter be allowed, on bis insolvent list, $20.68 on the State tax, and $12.11 on ihe County tax. We have examined, by Committee, the Public Buildings and find that the Debtor’s Room of the Jail, is very insecure, and re commend that it be repaired and made thoroughly secure, without delay. The Clerk's office and Court House need tome repairs, which we recommend to be made. We have inquired into the condition of the public roads and bridges in the Coun ty, and find that m"st of the public roads are in good order, ana that most of our public bridge* are in good order; some few excep tions to both, and the attention of the proper authorities is called to them. We have examined, by Committee, the Books of the Clerks of the Superior and In ferior Courts and Ordinary, and find them iieatly kept, highly creditable to their officers, and very convenient for general reference. We recommend an assessment of 25 per cent on our State Tax, for the education of the Poor. Asa M. Jackson, Esq .Ordinary, presented to us a list of cbildreu eutitled to the bene fits of the act for the education tf the Poor: We anurebeud that , said list will be materi ally charged this year, and that the demands for education of the Poor will be larger this year than last.

If you want vour goods forwarded without the vexatious delays and enormous expense bills paid the last season, and at the same time have your business done in such a man ner that somebody will be made responsible for the damaged and lost packages, consign them to Tiwlet A Herron. who have Received and Forwarded all Goods consigned to them daring all the past season without any extra charge over those established rates as given below, and up to this time have not encoun tered a solitary complaint.

Anotherimport&ntadvantage is that his thorough knowledge ofall.freights and rules of shipment enables him to instantly detect and correct any overcharge in the Bills of lading which in all cases has to be dose at that time, or be lost to the owner,, in many instances greatly exceeding the com missions we charge- He was also raised in Charleston, is perfectly acclimated and free from the contagions of that city, therefore we will under all circumstances faithfully discharge any business entrusted to us.

Daroerocs ground.—It would be invidious to assert bluntly, that there is, originally, a disproportion of intellect between one an imal and another of the same species, still there is a rule which intrudes itself on obee - vation, and opens the distinction. A man who prides himself in the preservation of the main features of human attraction, has credit at least for one conservative quality,—take the hair as an example,—whereas, he who neglects every point of personal appearance has none. Those who would conserve or improve the appearance qf their hair or com plexion, should use Bogle’s celebrated Hybo- rion Fluid for the hair. Sold in Athens by C, AY. A H. R. J.
