An increase of fiftoon-and-a-quartor cents on the h u n d r e d dollars has been ordered. The former rate for county purposes was uinety-seven cents. . It is now a dollar and twelvo- aud-a-quarter cents. The State tax- rate remains the same (173), making tho total amount oti each one h u n - dred dollars of taxable basis to bo paid in Caroline this year one dollar and thirty cents.

A number of the appropriations remain the same. In this year of poor crops and low prices of grain, with ^oods to bo purchased going higher and higher, our taxpayers arc likely to fool thoir burdens rnoro sensibly than ever.

Prices of admission will be low, and arrangements arc being made to scat a large crowd comfortably. The town of Federalsburg was aroused on Saturday night, about 10.30, by loud screams of "murder" and "help" from a colored residence near tho old Davis pond. A large crowd hurried to the spot, to find it a false alarm, m u c h to the relief of everyone. A colored woman alone in the house became alarmed at the rattling of a shutter, and successfully raised tho neighborhood. Mr. Thomas Gambrill, who has boon in a Baltimore hospital for nearly six months with a. broken limb, returned homo this week, much to tho delight of his m a n y friends and himself.

Since the landing of the American army in Cuba every effort has been directed toward a proper preparation for tho .attack on Santiago. Tho Spaniards fell back as the invaders approached the city, and concentrated their forces for the supremo effort to repel the oncoming Americans. Fences of barb wire encompassed the city, with trenches and rillo-ptts w i t h i n , and the approaches to the town were said to be m i n e d , bat notwithstanding all this the Americans and Cubans feared not the outcome of tho approaching battle and wero anxious, the correspondents toll us, for tho order to advance. Tho attack began yesterday morning. There can be but one result--the capture of tho city--bnl some of the J brave fellows who f o u o l i t v a l i a n t l y yesterday to-day lio side by side, American and Cuban, in a soldier's grave.

To tho Editors of tho JOURNAL: My attention has been called to an article published in tho American Union of June 30th, in reference to tho duties, etc., of tho clerk to the county commissioners. To prevent a false impression spreading among tho readers of the Union, and coming from such a source, I want to say th'at the statement therein made, that I had demanded two hundred dollars extra for doing the duties of clerk to the county commissioners, is false and without foundation. I have at no time, either to the editor of the Union, or of the county commissioners made a demand for one dollar for extra services as their clerk, before or sinco their attempt to practice vicious legislation upon me, and to take from me what the law provides the salary shall bo for said duties. Tho only.thing t h a t ' I have said touching upon tho question of-extra pay for clerk's- work, was after one of the commissioners approached mo on the subject, and asked m« to do tho clerk's work. I refused to do it under tho provisions of the new clerk bill, which would take about two hundred dollars off my salary. Q. H. WIIITBY. ^ · -^-- . School Items.

Bo fore enlisting Mr. Wallace lived at Bethlehem, this county. He says: "I understand that it is reported around homo (in fact, everywhere almost) that" just after pay-day a large number of our soldiers engaged in a fistic battle, which resulted in several being killed and a greater number having to.go to the hospital, tho alleged battle being between the Regulars and Volunteers. I wish to say to the public through your valuable paper that it is a great mistake. Of course, there are a few' rough characters everywhere, and we have some in the army. There wore a few fights, but no serious fighting." Speaking of the soldic«^ lot, Mr. Wallace continues: "Tho boys are getting along finely. Tho climate is lovely, and the fort is a fine one. Old Point Comfort need not be jealous of any summer resort on the coast. The hotels are as fine as any resort can have. They arc the Chamberlain and the Hygeia. We are getting plenty to eat at present, and have nothing to complain of. We were given new uniforms last week, and the boys are walking around with their heads up. We went out on a long practice march Thursday. It was very warm, but the boys stood it well.' The distance covered was from twelve to fourteen miles, but some of us thought is was much longer. When not drilling the soldiers spend their time in different ways. Somo go bathing, fishing and crabbing, while others go to neighboring towns on the electric cars and steamboats. Our company is a fine one. Our officers are well thought of by tho men, and everything is working harmoniously." TempU'vlHc. Mr. B. Potter, who has boon visit- his sister, Mrs..
