Acts. 471


Inhabitants of this Province might and were by the said Act Enabled
to discharge all Levys (the forty per Poll and all Tobacco directed
by any Act of Assembly of this Province to be levyed and applyed
to the Building and repairing any Church or Churches therein ex-
cepted) in the said Bills of Creditt or Gold or Silver rating Tobacco
at ten shillings per hundred in the said Bills or Gold or Silver and that
all Bounties rewards and allowances given and allowed by any Act
of Assembly of this Province in Tobacco And also all fynes for-
feitures and Penalties settled and Established in Tobacco by any
Law of this Province should and might be paid satisfyed and dis-
charged in the said Bills of Creditt or Gold or Silver rating Tobacco
at ten Shillings per hundred and in Proportion for a lesser Quantity
with Provisoe that no Person should be obliged to pay the said
Bills of Creditt or Gold or Silver in Lieu of Tobacco but that Every
Person should be at Liberty to pay Tobacco for the said Levys and
Penalties as if that Act had never been made And Whereas by the
said Act another Provision was made to wit that Every Person who
should not tender or pay such Bills of Creditt or Gold or Silver by
the tenth Day of April yearly during the Continuance of that Act
should be obliged to pay all Levys in Tobacco as if the said Act had
never been made And Whereas Severall the Good People of this
Province lyable to pay the Publick and County Levys have also Al-
lowances made them from the Publick or County by Laws now in
being for Certain Services to the Country and most justly Conclude
that the severall sheriffs Should and ought to discount with them
at ten Shillings per hundred for so much Tobacco as they are al-
lowed in their hands or so much as will discharge that part of their
Levy as is by the said Act lyable to be paid in money at the rate of
ten shillings per hundred be it before or after the tenth of April
yearly yet so it is that the said Sheriffs insist and do pay severall of
the Inhabitants their whole Allowances at ten shillings Current
Money per hundred and at the same time demand and actually
have from them either the whole of the Tobacco they stand charged
with for Publick & County Levys or from Sixteen shillings and Eight
Pence per hundred to twenty five shillings per hundred therefore
which practice if suffered must Greatly tend to the ruin and im-
poverishment of .many the Good People of this Province and to the
Great Discredit of the said Current money for remedy whereof it is
prayed that it be Enacted And be it Enacted by the Right Honour-
able the Lord Proprietary by and with the Advice and Consent of
his Lordships Governour and the Upper and Lower Houses of As-
sembly and the Authority of the same that from and after the End of
this Present Session of Assembly all Publick and County Allowances
of what nature soever and Parish Taxes (the forty per Poll ex-
cepted) which shall hereafter be made and allowed by the Pub-
lick or any County shall be levyed and made in the Current
