the inventions of master minds which

.Serious Accident (o a Surviving
.Soldier ol'tlie ICeroIiitiou.
William Blankcnship, who lives two
miles above Rough Creek Springs, in
Hardin county, was born in Virginia in
the year 1730, and is consequently 1 III
years old. He served the colonies as a
soldier in the war for independence, and
was a member of Col. Harry Lee's famous
Light Horse battalion. The old soldier
is remarkably sprightly and active, and
his visual organs and mental faculties are
alike unimpaired. He ha always lived a
temperate, prudent and industrious life,
and has in consequence enjoyed the mot
vigorous health. Up to last Sunday week
he was fully as active as we are now in
our forty-third year. (In that day the
old veteran met with a serious accident,
which, at his advanced age, it is hardly
reasonable to suppose he will recover from.
He was endeavoring to raise a fallen
horse, and had succeeded in partially lift,
ing it to its feet, when the animal gave
way, and fell against him, knocking him
down and breaking one of his legs.
Dentil oM'oloiiel Ilmicork.
Colonel George Hancock died yesterday
at bis residence about twelve miles from
the city. He was a gentleman of liberal
education, and after leaving Yale studied
law, but parsed bis life in agricultural
pursuits. Possessing a refined taste and
polished manners, he lived to a very ad
vanced age, retaining great vigor of body
and mind, and during his long life was
singularly respected for his benevolence,
generosity and manly character. He will
be long remembered as one of the mo-it
hospitable and cultivated men of the gen
eration that is papains away. He was a
Virginian by birth, but for nearly half a
century was one of the most prominent
and useful citizens of this county.

Keesee, in Hardin county, two men en

Drain and William Mobcrly.engaged in an

of slandering him The quarrel culmina

pitchfork, with a prong of which he laid
one of his checks open from the chin to

spitted the calf of one of Drain's legs upon
the tines of his fork. They were separa
ted before more serious damage was done.
A Xciv ami I'atal Disease Among
Wc learn from a reliable source that a
new and singularly fatal disease is de

of the White Mills, on Nolin river. It,
symptoms arc almost identical with those

the Cliques and Illackstones, which came

Owing to extra good batting, the score
was exceedingly large, being 71 to 39,
nevertheless the game was exciting and
interesting. As each side has been vic

be called and thus test the championship.

QCIXTl-S CET3 Ills QUANTUM.
A game oC base ball was being played
between the Bricks and Stones, and as
one Q. Berry happened to be a Brick, he
first took the bat. But, alas! for him lie
was too soft a Brick, for Col. Stevens
threw the ball too swift and hit the said
striker in the pit of the stomach, which
caused a piercing shriek, supplemented by
groans like unto nothing we ever heard
before. They laid him out to cool,
and put in his stead our friend Barnes,
who caught the ball in his hand, held on
to it, and made a home run. He was
thinking of his "Dulcy Ann."
CACGIIT IT IS I1IS TEETH.
Judge Blankcnship then came to the
front, missed the first ball about seventy-
five feet, but the second one he caught in
his mouth, and whether he swallowed it
or not is not known. If he did, and it
kills him, Micawber will grieve over the
death of another of his followers.
The ball being lost they adjourned to
play on September 9th, 1S75.
