--Another "Combohee planter" has presented the State of South Carolina
$20,000 for its service.
The Charleston Courier thus notices the act passed by the Legislature for raising supplies for the year commencing 1861:
The entire amount proposed to be raised is about $1,800,000. This includes certain extra- ordinary contingencies which may arise for the military and other exigencies of the State
, amounting to about $900,000. The amount necessary to meet the pressing demands of the State
, about $850,000, is provided for by direct taxation.
Treasury notes and bills receivable in amounts of $50, $100 and $500 for about $700,000, are to be issued, bearing interest at the rate of seven per cent.
