Gentlemen, the time to take the number of children of the educational age has arrived, and instructions have been received for the returns to be made by the 15th November to the officer of Superintendent. I have forwarded those instructions, to your respective Post Offices, but fearing you have not received them, I take this method also to inform you. Be prompt, gentlemen that your respective Townships may have a fair showing in the next distribution.

TO THE PUBLIC
After this issue in the Atlanta Republican and the American Discipline, will be united into one paper, under the name of The Republican & Discipline, and be conducted under the firm of A. M. Elleman & Co. The subscribers to each paper will be supplied with the Republican & Discipline, at the same price, two dollars a year in advance. This union of the two papers will give to the subscribers an enlarged, and as we trust, a much more interesting paper than either would be seperate, (sic) It will also secure to patrons the best and most extensively circulated advertising sheet in Northern Georgia.
On or about the 20th Instant, a daily issue will also be commenced at six dollars per annum.
We take this opportunity to express our thanks for past patronage and solicit the aid of friends in building up a paper worthy the occasion.
