The Estimated Expenses of the City,
In response to the inquiry of" Fletch-
crville,” asking for an estimate of the
current expenses of the city govern
ment, we publish elsewhere the infor
mation requested. The gentlemen
have not gone into details, or given
an itemized statement of the current
expenses, as this would have required
columns of figures. It will be satis
factory, no doubt, to Flelchervillc and
all others, to know what the current
expenses of the town amounts to. This
is, as we understand it, the point rais
ed by Fletcherville. It is the amount,
not what it is paid out for. Those
who have been fighting the park have
contended that the town could not
afford to issue bonds. In the first
rejoinder the finance committee show
ed the indebtedness of the town to be
about 817,000, the income over
$21,000. And now they show that
$1,200 per month is . paying
the current expenses, except in
cases where some utilooked for and
extraordinary expense may-bavc to be
unexpectedly met. Say we put
the current annual expenses
at $16,000. With an income
of 821,000, this would produce a
surplus, or sinking fund, of 85,000,
per year. This, as will lie seen, would
soon wipe out the existing debt and
leave a healthy and sate margin lor
all extraordinary expenses.
Again has been demonstrated, by
facts and figures, that the town is
amply able to purchase the park.
Every argument against its purchase
has been met and overcome.
Editor Times Enterprise:
The committee, in response to the
second communication of Fletcher-
villc, asking for n “statement of tho
expenditures of the town,” beg leave
We have seen the Treasurer, Mr.
James F. Evans, and ho informs us
that the current expenses of the town,
including salaries, Ac., amounts to
twelve hundred dollars per mouth.
This amount will defray all expenses
of the city government, except some
unforeseen or extraordinary expendi
ture. becomes necessary. Such being
the ease, wc can from licenses and
water rent, pay all the expenses of
the city until April 1st, leaving the
ad valorem tax, whicli amounts to
between twelve thousand five hundred
nnd thirteen thousand dollars, to pay
on the indebtedness of the city. Wc
will also add that in former state
ment every dollar of the city’s indebt
edness was included, and paid up to
the first of this month ; and that no
debts have been made since, except
those accruing from salaries.

Work was commenced yesterday
morning, on the ground, for the ercc

pository for Evans A McLean, being

property belongs to Wright & Mitchell,
and the work is being done by Mr.
Eaves, who will have the building

November. This will add materially
to"the appearencc of that portion nl

likely that the other side of the street
will be built up also, at an early day.

The attention of farmers and cotton
growers is called to *the address else
where of Col. Livingston, president of
the State Alliance,and Mr.Hcnderson,
Commissioner of agriculture, in refer
ence to the recent action of the ex
change of the United Slates in con
vention assembled at New Orleans.
The action of that convention, in giv
ing cotton covered with cotton bagging
an advantage of eight pounds per
bale, over cotton covered with jute
bagging, will be generally indorsed by
all classes and growers and buyers.
For long years the Liverpool cotton
exchange has deducted, as tare, thirty
pounds from every bale of American
cotton. The American cotton ex
changes have said that hereafter not
more than 24 pounds shall be deduct
ed from cotton covered with jute, and
that only sixteen pounds shall be de
ducted where cotton is covered with
cotton bagging. This, as will be seen,
is a saving to the farmer (provided he
can get the allowance when he sells,
and which he should certainly get) of
six pounds on each bale covered
with jute, and fourteen pounds
on each bale covered with cot
ton. The cotton planter has long
been the foot ball of the Liverpool
buyers. American buyers have had
to buy on the basis made by Liver
pool. The farmers arc to be congrat
ulated that the wrong is at last to he
Much, however, depends on the
astion of Liverpool. If they refuse to
accept the action of4.be American ex
changes, it will complicate the situa
tion very much.
Thomasville Saved His Life.
Editor Times-Enteutrisk :
Feeling it my duty in behnlf of
ThOmaBvillc, nnd those desiring to bo
restored to health, I give you an
extract from a letter just received
from Capt. Win. Hnuft, of St. Paul,
Minn, who spent last winter in our
city. It speakafor itself. Capt. Hauft
stated to me, that before leaving
home last winter, it was impossible
for him to do • anything, he was in
such wretched health, but he has
been restored, and gives Tlmniasvillc
credit for being the great restorative.
And in his letter lie says he feels
strong and healthy, in fact compares
his strength, etc., to John L. Sulli
van, the great champion tighter, but
L want you to understand Capt. II. is
110 fighting man, but a perfect gentle
man in every sense of the word.
Extract from Capt. Hauft’s letter:
“I heard you were going to have a
new railroad to Thomasvillc. Well,
that will make things lively, I hope
so any way. I have much love for
Thomasville, I think it saved my life,
I feel like John L. just now. 1 hope
we will meet agnin. I think I have
many friends in Thomasvillc, Ga. I
must go down there again, my wife
wants to go and sec that great coun
try, and when I go again she will
”My health is good and tlmt is the
best news I can write you.”
The Captain is kindly and pleasant
ly remembered by all who met him
during his stay here. lie was the
guest, last winter, of Mr. and Mrs.
CJcorge W. Carroll. Wc hope to see
the Captain again in Thomasville, for
pleasure, not for health.
Thomasville Cotton Market.
The streets are lively with col tori
wagons, and the market is lively as
well. Thomasvillc is getting her
share of cotton, and is disposed to
reach out for additional. Our mer
chants arc fully awake to the neces
sity of holding the country trade, and
only need an opportunity to convince
their country friends that they will
serve them acceptably.
Attention is called to the dissolution

Fearn retires and Mr. West'will carry
