The rents of the Town Hall Building, about $600, being appropriated to the 
Sinking Fund, are aot accounted for at this time, .but will make a part of the 
Statement, which, by the vote of the Town, is to be made in May. 

There also remains uncollected, $28 62 of the Tax of 1834 ; and $1443 07 of 
the Tax of 1835, the greater part of which will probably be received. 

The Treasurer has drawn, according to law, upon the CoMmonwealth, for the 
amount of $610, which, agreeably to the orders of the Selectmen he has paid to 
sundry persons for military services, but his draft was dishonored in consequence 
of a proiesi, originating with the minority of said Board of Seleetinen, and re- 
lating to matters of action within said Board, it is presumed that a part of the 
sum, $425, will be paid. 

The amouats above named, together with the balance in the Treasury, will pay 
off the money hii-ed in anticipation of Taxes to meet current expenses. 

(tij" For the .items paid under the various ^appropriations see succeeding pages.
