A Supplement to an act, * entitled, An act to facilitate the draining
   of land in the several counties therein mentioned.       Lib. JG.
   No. 3. fol. 324.

WHEREAS the act to which this is a supplement has been found beneficial in its operation in 
the counties included in said act, and it is thought just and reasonable that the same should be
extended to such other counties as wish to obtain the benefit of its provisions; therefore,

II. BE IT ENACTED, by the General Assembly of Maryland, That an act passed at November session,
one thousand seven hundred and ninety, entitled, An act to facilitate the draining of land in the 
several counties therein mentioned, be and the same is hereby extended to Talbot and Saint-Mary's 
counties, to operate on the said counties, and each of them, in its various provisions, clauses and
effects, in the same manner as if both and each of them had been originally included, named and
inserted therein.

                                                CHAP. LXXIV.
A Supplement to the act, * entitled, An act for the more effectual
   collection of the county charges in Allegany county.   Lib. JG.
   No. 3. fol. 324.

WHEREAS by the act, entitled, An act for the more effectual collection of the county charges
in Allegany county, passed at November session, one thousand seven hundred and ninety-six,
the commissioners of the tax in Allegany county are directed and required, in certain cases where
the county charges shall not be paid upon any tract or lot of land in said county, to cause advertise-
ments to be inserted in certain news-papers, in the manner in said act directed:  And whereas no
provision is made by said law as to the manner of defraying the expence of advertising said land, and
the said act, in other respects, wants aid and amendment;

II. BE IT ENACTED, by the General Assembly of Maryland, That the commissioners of the tax of Al-
legany county be and they are hereby authorised and required to apportion the expence of advertising
the tracts and lots of land aforesaid between the respective tracts or lots so advertised, agreeably to
the sum due for taxes on each tract or lot; and the said commissioners shall make out, and deliver to
the collector, a list, expressing the sum due on each tract or lot for advertising as aforesaid, and the
same shall be considered as part of the legal charges on said tract or lot, and shall be received and
collected by the collector as part of the legal charges on said tract or lot, and paid to said commis-
sioners, or their order.

III. AND BE IT ENACTED, That where several tracts, lots or parcels of land, in the said county,
whereon arrearages of taxes are due, belong and are charged upon the assessment lists to the same
person or persons, in that case it shall not be lawful for the said commissioners to order a sale of more
of the said tracts, lots or parcels of land, than will be sufficient to discharge the whole amount of
taxes due from such person or persons, together with the commission and legal charges arising there-
on, any thing in the act to which this is a supplement to the contrary notwithstanding, but in such
case the said commissioners may order and direct the collector to sell as aforesaid any one or more of
such tracts, lots or parcels of land, or such part thereof as may be necessary to pay the whole amount
of taxes, commission and charges, due from such person or persons as aforesaid.

IV. AND BE IT ENACTED, That if the commissioners of the tax of said county, or a majority of
them, shall be of opinion that any tract, lot or parcel of land, will not admit of division without
material injury to the owner or owners thereof, the commissioners aforesaid, or a majority of them,
be and they are hereby authorised and required to authorise and direct the collector to sell the whole
of said tract, lot or parcel of land, an entry of which authority to the collector shall be made upon
the minutes of the proceedings of the commissioners.

V. AND BE IT ENACTED, That the collector shall, within two weeks after making any sale of real
property for the purposes aforesaid, make return to the clerk of the commissioners of all his proceed-
ings in relation thereto, under his hand and seal; and that where, from the sale of any tract or lot
of ground agreeably to the provisions of this act, the collector shall receive more money than may be
sufficient to satisfy the taxes and legal charges thereon due, the collector shall, within two weeks af-
