As already known, all the country west of Peoria County to the Mississippi River and north to the State line, as well as a part of the country east of the Illinois River, 
was subject to the jurisdiction of the Commissionersí Court, from the records of which we are quoting. In all that immense territory there were only one hundred and twenty-three tax-payers in 1825, as certified by Assessor Bogardus. His report is here appended:
