against John Dunlap, George W. Chapman,
and the unknown heirs of Ansell Darneill, de-
ceased ; which bill states that on the loth day
i df January-, 1838, John Dunlap entered into a
pontract with George W. Chapman, whereby
ll ws agreed between the said parties that said
PU.m 1...1J 1 . I 1 T

nts six hundred ,and
forty acres of said undivided quarter of a league
of land, for a valuable consideration. Bill al-
leges that the said league of land has been sur-
veyed and patented, and that the said Dunlap
refuses to make them a title forthesixhundrcd

der of publication for the unknown heirs of
Ansell Darneill, and that the Court would de-
cree them a title according to their contract.
These are, therefore, to command you that
you summon the unknown heirs of Ansell Dar-
neill by publication as the JaAv directs, to be
and appear at the next term of the District

THE undersigned takes this method of notf,
fyiug all those who are iu arrearages o
Taxes for 1846, 1 847 aud 1848, that he has been,
urgently required by the Comptroller to m,ak.e.
a close of Tax accounts, and the undersigned
will be forced to make levies and sales of prop-
erty in order to realize the Taxes due. Hav-
ing tried a sale of Lands, without effect, he
will have now to levy on personal property
and the expense of keeping it uutil advertis-
ed the proper time will greatly exceed the
laxes due. 1 his expense as a matter of course
' will fall upon the persons owning the property
I and consequently, the amount to be made in
each case will be more than three times the
amount of Taxes due. It is therefore suggest-
ed that persons owing taxes for the above
named years will save a good deal by coming
forward promptly and paying up back Taxes!
The undersigned would much prefer that
the Taxes would be paid without forcing him
to make levies, but rather than his bond should
be placed in the court he will make levies and'
spare no one who is in arrears.

Assessor and Collector of Taxes,
