AUDITOR, THE STATE. Reports, 1844-1896. Tuscaloosa, 1845. Montgomery, 1849-1896.


The office of Comptroller of Public Accounts was created by the constitution of 1819, to be filled by an annual election by joint vote of both houses of the general assembly. The constitutions of 1861 and 1865 provided for a biennial election. The reconstruction constitution, 1868, changed the name of the office to Auditor, and provided for an election by the people for a term of four years. The only change made by the present constitution, 1875, is in limiting the term to two years.

BACHELOR'S (THE) BUTTON. The Bachelor's Button: | a | monthly museum of Southern literature. | There is a divinity, they say, in odd numbers.-Falstaff. | Number V. | William R. Smith, | editor. | Tuscaloosa | printed by Ferguson & Eaton, | at the office of the "Flag of the Union." | 1837. |

8vo. Nos. 1-5. pp. 248.

The only copies of this publication that have been seen are number 2 and the above. As the cover of this copy of number 2 has been lost, the full title of the latter is given. Presumably the first issued was in December 1836, as number 2 is dated January 1837. The numbering of the pages in numbers 1 and 2 is separate, 64 in each. Number 5 shows continuous paging from number 1. The first four numbers were published in Mobile, and were probably regular monthly issues. Number 5 was published in Tuscaloosa, "after a delay of some months." The announcement is made that the sixth number would appear December 1837; and that beginning with January 1838, a new venture, The Southern Magazine, would supersede it. It is not known that the latter venture ever materialized.

The Bachelor's Button was purely literary in its character, and contained numer ous short stories, poems, and book reviews. It has the distinction of being the first periodical of the kind published in Alabama.
