"Pursuant to an act of Congress, entitled, "An act to amend an act, entitled, 'an act to lay and collect a direct tax within the United States'," the collector of the direct tax for the sixth collection district, including the counties of Blount, Sevier, and Cocke, has lodged in this office a list of the lands within said district, upon which the direct tax remains unpaid, which is open to the free inspection of all parties concerned. Unless said taxes are within six months from the date hereof, paid either to the collector or to the subscriber resident at Nashville, said lands, or so much thereof as shall be sufficient to satisfy the direct tax due thereon, together with all costs and charges, will be exposed to public sale at the court houses of the respective counties in which the lands are situated, viz, at the court house of Blount County, on the ninth day of January next; at the court house of Sevier county, on the sixteenth day of January next; and at the court house of Cocke county, on the twenty third day of January next.
