Bolon, June ts. One of the Arft objes of the
late fI lion of the General Comhnwa the folingu a
new valuation of the federal tows In the common-
wealth. The change of propqrtg occsaoned In ma-
ny places by the peace together with the dillike
which generally attends the vacation of the time

Real or ftpnored inequalities had altf greatly Im.

Scmoved. The returns, as ufual, were committed,
with intruidiuns however fomewbat different from
the general practice. The relative value of counties
was not as heretofore to be afcertained but the
towns were to be taken up in alpibaetical arrange
ment, or the lihre town frit, and afterwards the
other towns of any county, according to their
local fltuation. Notwhbitandirg great aertions
were ufed on theprt of.the e.mamittee, to bring
this buflncf of Aot luation ll a perfrC Rate before
the couit, it wa.i found to lp impradicablc, and

accordingly introduced a M IPMWtf duty of
t wenty five per cent. on all gods w h should he
