The Ricnmond Dispatch says that a
gentleman of that city has about con?
summated the sale to Mr.H.S, Carruth,
a Boston capitalist, of tho Natural
Bridge in Rockbridge county.
The sale will include the Bridge,and
several thousand acres of land, but does
not include the hotels. The property
is now owned by Mrs. H. C. Parsons,
relict of Col. H. C. Parsons.
Mr. Carruth will, it is understood,
make extensive improvements on thu
Natural Bridge property, and it is
thought probable that ope- or more
hotels may be built in addition to
those already there. The latter are
owned by the Natural Bridge Park
Association, as well as the park ol
several thousand acres in which they
are situated, may be purchased bv Mr.
The Natural Bridge is situated three
miles from the line of the Norjolk and
