HOW TO ASCERTAIN THE RATEABLE VALUE I OF THE RENT-CHARGE OF A PARISH 1 To the Editor of the North Walei Chronicle. Sir,—Can any of your numereus correspondents In. form me if the following mode of arriving at the just proportion which the rent-charge ought to hear to the total rateable value of any given parish be correct or not; and if not, can any one suggest another method of answering the question ? Suppose a parish or rectory, its appointment to be X250, the total rateable value of the whole parish to be £ 1600, and the tenth of that would be X160. At first sight the last sum appears the just proportion of the reut-charge; but there are a number of houses rated to the poor and other local taxes that are not on the rent charge list. The rateable value of such is about £16Ô; and is not this sum to be deducted, thereby making the rateable value of the whole on which the rent charge is claimed zCl440, and the tenth of that will be zc72 I Can anyone suggest a fairer or a simpler method of valuing the same ? By the above method no reference can be made to any other parish in the Union, and it is taken for granted that the land has been justly and conscientiously valued by competent persons.
