X Was Made Up of the
ver of Augusta County
Served Through the En-
Four Years of War
rior to the Civil War, Captain
William Patriot organized a cavalry
company made up of young men of
this county. Their parade ground
was usually at New Hope, as that
was a central point. Their uniform
was a blue coat, a soft black hat
with long flowing plumes, an abun
dance of bra-ia buttons, and their arms,
glittering sabers liansiug from appro
priate belts, and shoulder straping,
was martial like, ana attractive.
Probably no more superb set of
young men, more splendidly mounted
was ever found in column, and there
are those still living who remember
when with drawn sabers they went
through the various evolutions of
cavalry drill. We do not recall the
number in this it an
swered the bugle call for real war, but
it was large and imposing, larger we
believe then ordinary companies. This
much we know and that is that it
rode forth at;the first sound" to arms"
and was in the midst of the fight nn
til the 9th of April, 1865. It engaged
in one of the heaviest cavalry en
gagements of the war at High Bridge
on April 6th, three days before the
surrender, when it helped defeat *
much larger number of the enemy,
many of whom were killed, captured
and taken prisoners. In that engage
ment it was led by Lieut. Silas H.
Walker, than whom possibly no more
daring or braver officer could be I
found. When the company had been
mustered in and the regular organiza
tion took place, this company beoame
Company "E," Ist. Virginia Cavalry.
After the first year of servioe, the
jompany elected Thomas H.McClnng,
Captain: Silas H Walker, Ist. Lieu
tenant; Elijah Coiner,2nd lieutenant;
md Julian Johnson, 3rd Lieutenant
The captain, and Ist and 2d lieuten
mts are all now living in th : s county,
Lieutenant Johnson is living in Col
orado. These were the officers when
she war closed. Time has told the
story here as elsewhere. Death lias
been busy, but as one by one they

' Byrd Law te be Construed
Mr. Samuel LKellev, attorney for
the Phil G.Kelly Company, of Rich
mond was in the city yesterday to,
represent the defendant company in
a case now pending in the corporation
court for the sale of Alto Malt in lo
cal option territory. Commonwealth's
Attorney Braxton and Attorney Kel
ley agreed to submit the whole case
to Judge Holt on an agreed statement
of facts, the latter postponing his de
cision for several days in order to
give Mr. Kelley an opportunity to file |
his note of authorities.)
The questions raised in this case
are peculiarly interesting and have
not, so far as known, been heretofore
decided by a court The charge is
that they sold direot to a customer I
here but it is claimed by the defense
that the sale was not made here but in
Richmond. If the contention of
the Commonwealth's Attorney should
be sustained, it will have great
effect in the shipping of goods
from wet territory into a dry terri-1
tory. The decision is therefore
awaited with mnch interest.

This Time in Lawn in Front of
' Home of Hon. Jacob Tost
About nine o'clock yesterday morn
ing, another cave in along the line of
the fissure, as it had been originally
mapped, took place. This time it oc
curred in the lawn of the Hon. Jacob
Yost, obliquely across the street from
the Todd house. The caving in was
slow bnt by noon it had opened until
the mouth of it at the surface was
about ten feet square. Tbis opening
occurring on the opposite side of Lew
is street from the Todd House indicat
ed that the same conditions might
prevail beneath thn street surface,
so the authorities ■ ordered Lewis
Street closed. Mr. Yost at once em
ployed Mr. a. L Partlow to take
charge of the cave-in and protect the
Bides so as to stop further falling of
earth. This Mr. Partlow undertook
at once and worked on all day yester
day. The city authorities transferred
a force over to Lewis steet and began
sinking test holes along the street,
across the line of the cavernous indi
cations and struck rook in each in
stance, the deepest hole being 35 1-2
feet. Tne fact that there was another
break in the surface caused a. tempo
rary flutter yesterday morning whioh
subsided so soon as the authorities
take hold of the affair. It is possible
that some work will go on to lay in
this new opening, provided there is
danger oi the sides slipping. All of
the other breaks heretofore are well
in hand.
General Hospital Board And W. S.H.
Contending Over Proceeds of Sale
Lynchburg, Va., Ang. 72.-If the
edict of the general state hospital board
is observed by the board of the Wes
tern State Hospital at Staunton,steps
will be taken immediately iooking to
the sale of the Murkland propeity on
one of the olnffs in Amherst opposite
the city, for such an order was made
by the board at a recent meeting at
This prop3rty, it will be recalled,
was left about five years ago for the
benefit of state epileptic patients and
it resulted in the effort to estaolish
the epileptic colony in Amherst
county and it is and has been the
bone of considerable contention dur
ing the past three or four years, for
the Staunton board claims it
should have the funds arising from
the sale of the property.
Indeed, this is the object of a suit
now pending in the courts of Jthe
state, in which the Staunton board
is suing the general board over a
question of bookkeeping, as to wheth
er it should have this fund or whether
it should go to the general board
I months ago the suit was thrown
f conrt in Richmond upon a
on of lack of jurisdiction, but
Jy it Has been gotten before_the
Supreme Court upon an appeal,
ere the question of jurisdiction
will be determined.
The result of the case will be to ad
vise the auditor of public accounts
who to c/edit with the., funds arising
from this sale. *
Indeed, it has been suggested'that
the title of the litigation should be
changed from the Staunton Board, vs
the General Hospital Board, to the
State of Virginia against the State of

MiUboro, Va., Amr. 30. —The season
at this resort has been one of unusual
pleasure iv gaiety among the guests.
Under the management of Mr. H.
r. Lyttleton the Millboro Hotel and
Cottages have been filled to their
sapacity with a most pleasant and
jongenial company, many of them
Troxt both western and eastern cities.
The waters to be had here are so
raried in mineral qualities as to reach

lesh and blood are heir. In the hotel
ire served sulphur, Chalybeate, Alum
md free stone. As the fall approach
)s. the prettiest time of the year to

;hat the hotel company will make
ipenial terms to September and Octo

Quite a lot of building and other
mprovments are going on here. The
VlcCorniick Brothers are erecting
leveral new houses and will soon
lave them ready for occupancy.
Just now there ii much interest
;aken in the newly projected rail
way. This road if bnilt is to open np
i vast area of virgin timber lands in
3ath county, surveying parties have
ocated the road and have found
somparatively easy grades As now

Jidge, along that ridge what is known
is Scotchtown Draft, thence to
Villiamsville, crossing Cowpasture
■iver and proceeding to the neigh

ance thus coveied is about 16 miles
md, if built,; the road is to be a
itandafct guage. The possibilities
md the probabilities of great devel

ed the enterprise now hangs only up
m the question of cost.
It is hoped and beleived that this
problem will De met, if so, an early
jpening of the work may be expected.

Rtify either a school house, or a

in same neighborhood living ovei the
line in Scuth River there were twi nty
or more. They asked the two districts
to unite in furnishing transportation
to a graded school, or open a sohool
nearby tor the children of both dis
tricts. They were referred to the
In River board with the promise
Beverley Manor would unite in
r proposition,

Clarence Glover who modestly
d that he wanted very little, only
.-.repairs to the buildings. These
t repairs" were new floors in both

Mint Spring was represented by pa
