AN OLD COUNTY RECORD

 The County Commissioners First Minute Book which has just been placed with the other Records of the County.

 We had the pleasure of examing one day last week, the first minute book kept by the Commissioners of this county, in 1808, soon after the county of Tioga was organized.  The Commissioners met at the log meeting house in Wellsboro on the 20th day of October 1808, and it was resolved that future meetings of the Board be held at the same place.  The total estimated expense of running the county at that time was only $1,772, and the Commissioners though it necessary to levy a tax of three fourths of a cent on the dollar in order to raise the requisite amount.  In January 1812 the first printed county orders were issued.  We find an agreement made at about the same time with Aaron Bloss for the opening of the Williamson road to Peter’s Camp, (Blossburg).  It seems the tax Collectors were handled without gloves in those early days, for in August, 1812, we find that instructions were given to the attorney for the county to issue executions at once against all delinquents.  In November, 1812, the Commissioners were thinking of erecting a jail, which it was estimated would cost $400.  It was to be made of logs, of course.  In April, 1813, an agreement was made with one David Henry to do the work of underpinning the new jail upon the following terms:  “He, David Henry, to have a dollar per-day for his own work, his provisions found him, and he to be furnished with half a pint of whisky per day.  He is to have a half a dollar per day for the use of his oxen, and their feed is to be found by the Commissioners.”  At the date of October 11, 1813,  we find the following interesting entry  “It being represented to the Commissioners by John Norris and Ebenezer Hill that the work of building the Court house and jail must have stopped directly after their last meeting had they not borrowed a certain quantity of shingling nails of David Henry and become bound to said Henry to return the nails in five weeks from that time or pay him half a dollar per pound for them in cash, the Commissioners having taken the same into consideration, and believing that Norris and Hill had no other view in procuring the nails but to forward the work on the jail and Court house, do hereby resolve to relieve them from the penalty of their agreement and subject the county to any and every expense or loss that they may suffer on this account.

 At a meeting held October 25, 1815, Justus Dartt was instructed to hire some person to take the job of clearing the stumps from Main Street and the Public Square in this village.

 This old record ends at the date of August 9, 1815.  It contains little else of interest to our readers for it seems the minutes were not kept as full as they have been in later years.  The old book is well preserved and every line and letter is readable.  It has just been deposited with the other records at the Commissioners’ Office, having been in individual hands for upwards of seventy years.

 We find a table of the estimated expenses of the county for the year 1813, which we think our readers will find interesting, and therefore append it:
 Board and work on Court house    $100
 Four grand juries 24 men 3 days each       200
 Four common juries 36 men 4 days each    576
 Wood candles, Crier etc for court    100
 Prothonotary and Commissioners offices
       To be built       300
 Commissioners and Clerks wages    400
 Treasurers salary      400
 Wolves and panthers bounty     300
 Jail fees         50
 Viewing roads       100
 Building of a jail      400
 Assessors wages        30
 Seals for the offices        60
  Total     3016
