An entertainment was given nt King

which was attended by an Immense throng
of people. The entire day was filled
with interesting events, and the King
George people, with the many visitors
In that county, have not been so well
entertained for a long timo. The features
? of tho day were a fine old fashioned
tournamirnt, a musical and literary pro?
gramme, fe.-istlng and dancing at night.
The sum of J1S0 was realized for the ben?
efit of tho order. The tournament was
very exciting and many knights on spir?

bushels of grnln nnd carried bags hack

erally along tho river are shipping their
grain to this city now. Tho prices hero
are equal to and In many cases higher
than In the largor cities, and the ship?
ping facilities are far better and cheaper.
The advantages of these river steamers
to Prederlcksbnrg and the farmers along
the Rappahannock River are Incalcu?

GOV. JOHN BREATHITT,
The expected hns happened, or is about
to hapjon. Breatbllt county, the "dark
and bloody ground" of old Kentucky, Is
soon to appear In romance. No less than
four books, with the feuds and the shoot?
ings and tho burnings and the court trials
nnd tho nPlltlcal wrangles that have
made tho countv famous, or infamous,
as tho literary groundwork, aro soon
to come from tho press and go upon the
counters and In tho show windows of
tho book stores. It doth not yet appear
what they shall be, but no risk w.ll bo
taken In guessing that those volumes
will bo on tho old time yellow back order,
and ? will abound greatly in blood and
thunder. Broathitt county has a bad
name now, a verv bad one, but theso
"yellows" will mako It even worse, for
the authors of teom will not fall to tako
an ell for every Inch of license allowed
tho romncer In onlnrglng upon tho facts
upon which ho Is to build. Tho historical
facts, as to Broathitt county, as far as
Its history has boen nitido within tho past
t??o dociides, aro bad enough to blast
an otherwise respectable name, and It Is
probable that these blood and thunder
novels, or whatever tho books aro to bo,
will make tho damnation of the name
Breathltt completo, but It was originally
a highly rospucted and honored Virginia
Breathltt county was named In honor
of John Brqathltt. who was twlco tho
Governor of tho Stato of Kentucky. He
was a nativo of virginia., having beon
born at Now London, In Campbell county,

what is now Henry county, Tho old
Broathitt form, located two and ? half
miles from Martlnsvllle, was, and Is, one
among tho best tobacco farms in that
iamous tobacco county. It is now owned,
I think, by Mnj. J. Watt Ilalrston. William
Breathltt and William Whltsitt ownod
adjoining farms, woro groat friends and
bocame more closelv allied by marriage
ties. Breathltt married Whltsltt's slstor
1 and Wlllam Whltsitt returned tho com?
pliment by seeking and winning thn hand
of Breathltt's slstor. These two neigh??
? bora were Indood as brother, and when
ono decided to sol) out In Henry county
and locato In Campbell county tlie other
was quick to reach tho same conclusion.
Tholr hinds,wore purchased by tho Hair
eton family, descendants of whom, 1
think, still own them. Breathltt and
Whltsitt bought farms adjoining, near
