duct said meetings. MtsMS. R Walton !
Moore, Charlt-a E Stuart and S. G. Brent
were called upon and made able speeches.
This wi;s Mr. Moore's first ?ppearur.ee in the
county and he made a fine impression.
Judge Stuart, the democratic nominee for
the Hoiisb of Delegates, made a very ab'e
nnd comprehensive speech to the people*.
-Many (-iieslions on local legislation were
tts-kod Judge Stuart during his s;s-ech, all of
which b?) answered satisfactorily, aud
; edged himself to do all in his power, if

that be was almost the idol of Fairfax, his
native county, aud would make aStateSeu
ator thai every man iu tho district would
fee! proud of. He said that it was useless
to narrate Judge Stuart's qualifications; that
he looked upon Judge Stuart as not only tho
most popular man in the'Legislature, but
one of the ablest and most influential : that
with such tneu in the Legislature all needed
legislation could be promptly obtained, and
that no county and city iu the State would
rpass Alexandria county and city in tbe
menial c-.!ii>re and power of their represent?
atives. He appealed to the people for their
own interests to elect the ticket by a rous?
An Interesting Case in Fairfax.?On
the 19th icst. Mrs. O, B. Ashby, who owns
the old Fitzhugh farm, near Cariin's mill,
on the Little river turnpike, four miles west
of this city, sot out a warrant from Justice
Berkley, of Aanacdale, against Wm. Wat
kins, a prominent farmer of the county, for
unlawful trespass. Special Constable How?
ard executed the warrant, and the case
came up b-fore Justices Berkley, Catts aud
l'u'raan at Annandale on the 20ih. Mrs.
Ashby was represented by Hon. J. Ambler
S:niih, of Washington, D. C. and Mr. Wat
kina by L. Marbury, eieq, of this city. The
facts iu the case, as given in testimony, are
these : Mrs. Ashby last April, a short while
after she bought the farm, gave H. C. Fair?
fax written authority to sell one hundred
co.ds of wood offner land. H. C. Fditfax
did sell one hundred cord3 of wood to Tho?.
Fairfax, merchant of this city, und
Thomas Fairfax hired the team? ol Wat
kins to haul eff the wood, Mrs. Ashby be?
ing cognizant of tbe whole transaction.
Vftor Thomas Fairfax hal moved, with
'atkins' learns, about fifty cords of the
> od, Mrs. Ashby'a agent, a Air. Robey, un
dtj "icic to atop further removal by putting
up j. ?ate, and chaining it ncioss the road
useii oy Watkins in going to aud from the
wood. Ou the 14th inst., Watkins started
to houi .-ome more wood arid found the road,
heretofore said to have been a public toad,
Closed by the gate and chain. He took
down a paual of the fence near the gate
and began hawlicg the wood. Mrs Ash by
got outtho warrant a.3 above stated, aud
the ease was tried on the 21st inst. On the
ISth instant Messrs. William and Charles
Ccckc-rii: bought from Mrs. Ashby fifcy
cords of wood and they sterted to haul it off.
Mr. Thomas Fairfax got out a warrant
against them for larceny, ho claiming that
they wer6 taking the wood, cr a part of it,
that he had bought of H. C. Fairfax,
ft was testified to that Mrs. A. had one hun?
dred and fifty cords of wood cut, and after
T. Fi;iifax hud contracted for one hundred
cords, she had aright to eell the other fifty
cords to whom one wished. After the evi?
dence had all been submitted and argument
by Messrs. Smith and Marbury, the justices
gave judgment against each complainant by
dismissing the warrants; the first warrant
beii g in favor < f Watkins, as he went upon
tho land under sufficient color of title, he
. V i.;. x's agent The second war
rani was against T. Fairfax, as no larceny
was proved against the two Cockerills,
Mrs. Ashley having right to sell tho fifty
coids of wood Iht-y moved away. The costs
in t'qe cases amounted to $11 20, The whole
matter, we learn, has been amicably sottled,
and no further trouble is anticipated. There
was a largo crowd at the* trial

shares of $1 each.
The company is incorporated under the laws of West Virginia, and
the stock is non-assessable, and carries with it no personal liability to
The Gold Mining Company (location, Music Mountains, A. T.,) is as
sound a mining enterprise as was ever placed on the market, and its
possibilities have never been exceeded. Every share should double in
value within a year, and they may quadruple, as they are based on
property that would ordinarily have been capitalized ten (10) times as
great on account of its known richness and promise.
The shares are made small so that any one can invest. Subscriptions
for five shares are as welcome as those for hundreds.
Every dollar of earnings will go to the stockholders in dividends, as
there is nothing else that they can be used for.
A Wisewell mill, capacity 20 tons per day, with powerful machinery,
has been purchased and will be on the ground ready for erection at the
mine within the next thirty days.
The solid basis upon which the company is founded and the practical
proofs of the richness of the mine have already secured the confidence
of the public, and the stock has steadily ackanced in selling value.
Within the last few days bona fide sales have been made at tar.
There is no better stock on the market for a permanent investment.
