Several months since the subscription to pay for fencing the Methodist and Baptist Grave-yards, was placed in the hands of Mr. James H. Gilreath for collection, but he informs me that nothing has been paid, as money has been so scarce.  As crops have been good, and are now being sold, it is hope that the subscribers, both in town and country, will call and make payment, that the subject may be dismissed, by the completion of the work  It will be remembered that the Council have taken charge of the Methodist Grave-Yard, and added some five acres thereto, for a general cemetery, and therefore, those who have subscribed for both graveyards, can be relieved from one half of their subscription if they desire.
