George W. Smith. Madison Chapman Esq. Living between this place and Griggsville, last Saturday informed us that he had recently paid George W. Smith, former publisher of the Democrat, one years subscription to the Democrat, said subscription ending with #36 or 37 of the present volume. We hereby inform the public that said George W. Smith was not, is not and never will be authorized to collect any monies great or small belonging to us; and hence anyone indebted to who shall pay him will do so at his own risk, as we shall look to him for our money not withstanding.
