Walker's History of Athens
We have noticed the prepar
ation of this volume hereto
fore, and several days 6ince re
ceived a copy of it from the
publishers, Robert Clark & Co.,
Cincinnati, and have been
much interested in its perusal
It is a book of peculiar' inter
est to many of the citizens of
Vinton county, containing as
it does, biographical sketches,
incidents, anecdotes, ect., of
the early settlers 'of our im
mediate neighborhood, a part
of Vinton having been taken
from what .was in early times
Athens county. So full and
complete is" this history that
there can scarcely be on of
the; old pioneers who is not
mentioned, and upon nearly
every page we una some la
miliar name. The volume con-
tains-. COO pages, beautifully
printed on fine paper, elegant
ly bound in cloth, illustrated
with 6teel portraits and maps
of, the Ohio Company's pur
chase, and will be sent by the
publisher, free of postage, on
receipt of $5.00.
Wo take the liberty of pub
lishing the following biograph

Uncle Pearly Brown and next
week; will publish a narative
of Joseph Robo, uncle of our
Joseph Robo, and, webehevet
the father of Jarvis Robo, of
of Knox Tp., which are only
two of many, published for the
purpose of giving our readers
an idea of the local interest of
the book. Here is the first ex
'Pearly Rrown, oldest son of
the preceding, was born in Mas
sachusetts, July 24,1793, and
was four years old when
brought to this country. In
the year 1819 ho married Eliza
Ilulbert (who is still living),
and settled in Ames township,
on a new farm, given him by
is father. A hard working
and energetic man, ho soon
improved his circumstances,
and laid the foundation for a
competence. To afford some
idea of the prices that pre
vailed when he was a young
man, Mr. Rrown states that he
worked a Teek for Judge Cur
rier, in Athens, .' ,1823, at 31i
cents a day, and at Saturday
night was paid in tvo tin cup4
at 25 cents each ; a quarter of
a pound ot tea, 50 cents; one
pound of coflee, 50 cents, and
37 cents in money making
$1.87 with which valuables
he walked home ten miles.
While yet living with his fath
er, in 1814 or 1815, he was
hired to carry the mail, with
two other riders, between Ma
rietta and Chillicothe, the dis
tance being about one hundred
miles, and to make three trips
a week, or two hundred miles
a week lor each rider; for
which service he received $6
a month. He cultivated his
farm in Ames till 1829 or 1830,
when he removed to McAr
thurstown (then, in Athens
county), and engaged for many
years in selling goods and
dealing in live stock. In 1839
he and his partners drove
across the mountains to the
eastern markets 2,100 cattlei

of his allegation he produced

last Thursday morning from
the effect of the wound inflict

died he was married to Mrs.

most brilliant, and at the same
time the most reliable ot the
