In order to prevent, as much as possible, chimneys taking fire, the magistrates re-
commend to the inhabitants to get their chimneys swept every six weeks, and not to
employ or admit to their houses, or to the roof thereof, any chimney-sweeper not
having a badge, or who refuses to produce the same when demanded. The magistrates
also recommend to the inhabitants to keep the hatchway, or other access to the roof
of their houses, properly secured ; and not to intrust the key to any chimney-sweeper
who has not a badge, in order to prevent theft and destruction to property.
BILLETING SOLDIERS.
Soldiers on the recruiting service, &c, are billeted on the houses of the inhabitants,
in regular rotation, with the following exceptions, viz., Parish-ministers and School-
masters, Faculty of Physicians and Surgeons, Faculty of Procurators, Widows, and
Unmarried Ladies not in business, and who do not keep Lodgers, and Paupers.
Occupiers of houses at £3 and under £5 yearly rent, two men for any number of
days under a week ; at £5 and upwards, two men for two weeks, or the remainder of
the month, which may happen to be seventeen days.
Any person refusing the billet is subject to a penalty of Five Pounds.
When inconvenient to furnish the soldier with a bed, it is customary to pay a pri-
vate 3d. for each night, and a sergeant, 4d.
On the 4th, 5th, and 6th of the month, after the billet has expired, a penny for
each day for each man will be repaid, by presenting it to the Quarter-Master, 5 Great
