Crockett Quid Nunc
MARCH 1, 1865


Sealed proposals to take down and stack the bricks of the courthouse, payable in brick, will be received by the County Court until the first Monday of March next.

By order of the County Court, O.C. Aldrich, Clerk.


We announce today by authority, Colonel A.T. Monroe a candidate for Representative. We have known Colonel Monroe for some time past, in several capacities of a citizen, a merchant, and an officer of our army, and have always found him a gentleman of great worth. He is one of the oldest citizens of the county, having resided here years before we were born. We believe he possesses every qualification to make us a good Representative.


Candidates for Representative are: A.T. Monroe, Honorable J.C. Wootters, and James R. Bracken, all having lived in this county for many long years, all men of outstanding character, all bearing the mark of a good citizen.
