Montfort, Knoxville, Crawford County, Attorneys, Counselors and Solicitors, have entered into a partnership in the practice of the Law and Equity in the Superior Courts of the counties of Crawford, Talbot and Macon.
MELANCHOLY DEATH - Frederick Sims, Esq., one of our oldest and most respectable citizens, met with a most melancholy and painful death on the 23rd inst. Mr. S. was acting temporarily as conductor of the passenger cars upon the Macon and Western Railroad, and at the time of his death, had charge of the down train. About 15 miles above Macon and while passing through a plantation, the whistle gave warning of some obstruction upon the tract. Mr. S. anxious to discover the cause of danger, leaned as far as possible out of the car which brought his head suddenly in contact with a post, breaking his skull and killing him almost instantly. His remains were brought to the city by the same train and followed to the grave by a large concourse of friends and the Masonic Fraternity of which he was a worthy member. Mr. S. had filled many important trusts. He was a member of the Georgia Legislature, Post Master and Mayor of the city of Macon, and filled many other stations with credit to himself and profit to the community. He left an interesting family and a large circle of friends to mourn his untimely fate.
DIED - In Houston County, on the 20th inst, Louis Williamson, son of Paul S. and Martha E. Dinkins. Aged 2 years and 3 months.

DIED. On the 19th ult at his residence in Gwinnett County, Absalom Martin, in the 4th (typo?) year of age. The deceased had been for the last thirty years a residence of the same place, during which time his uniform habits of an upright and moral course of conduct, together with his general gentlemanly deportment, had established for himself a character of spotless integrity. No individual in his section of country possessed more warm and devoted friend, or enjoyed a higher degree of prosperity. But "in the midst of life we are in death"-- the despoiler came and with him were blighted all his earthly prospects forever. He has left an affectionate wife and five small children, together with a large circle of friends to mourn their bereavement, but they mourn not "as they who have no hope". He had never attached himself to any visible church, yet on his death bed he gave the strongest evidence to his friends around, of a bright prospect of the rich inheritance of a blessed immortality beyond the grave.
TAXES. The Tax payers of Bibb will please take notice that the Tax Books for 1849 are still to be found at the store of Mr. Daniel F. Clarke, in Cherry Street, where all are invited to call and settle. The books will be closed on and after the 15th of September... J.B. Grace TCBC
