The large store-room from which It. l'orter Itittenhouse recently moved his goods lias been elegantly titted up with furniture appropriate for the purpose, the walls newly pa pered, the lloor carpeted, and a large lire-pioof vault built and provided with a time-lock safe. So that the new hank is now ready to receive de posits, make loans. &c. W k stated last week (making the statement from the bed. information at hand) that the liabilities of M. A. Hurr,of Konceverte, who recently made an assignment, were about $3,000 and his assets about 8800 or $1,000. Mi. 1'urr writes us this week saying that I'is liabilities are $1,600 and that his notes and accounts amount to $2,800.? He says nothing about the value of his stock and whether he intended this to '?e included in the $'2,800 we do not know. We take pleasure in making the correction, and hope Mr. Hurr may be able to discharge his liabilities in lull and be able to continue his business. 1'itoM Fayette papers we learn that since the preliminary investigation of Hit' shooting of (?. L. Morris, the popu lar ('. & Q. Railway agent at Kanawha ' alls, by Squire Irwin L. ltigg at Heepwater, on the 13th. mention of which was made in these columns last week, public sentiment, which at first was much against ltigg, has turned in ''is favor and the shooting of Morris is (>l?en|y justified? one of the justices who sat in the investigation voting to discharge him. The evidence showed that Morris and Mrs. ltigg had been cr'minally intimate, that ltigg if 'bil not know, strongly suspected this Hll(l bad warned Morris that he would shoot him if he did not desist. Among the witnesses in the case was Squire "'Kg's little daughter whose testimony, ,,l(?ugh not published in the papers, proved her mother's guilt and was so touching and pathetic that strong men wept as they heard the child tell the Mory of her mother's shame. Ili.ritlilr I'llmt it l)tr|iw*t?r. At I)eep water, Fayette comity, on Monday night, the loth instant, Mrs. Hadford, the widow of Isaac Had ford who was murdered several years ago hy Wash Adkins, was cruelly and criinmallv assaulted by two negroes.? The t wo fiends entered her house, where she lived alone. One of them was ! armed with an axe. They threatened her life if she refused to submit to j their desires. She pleaded with them not to kill her. and fought them for [ souie time. They dragged her outside , of the house, and one of the negroes forced her to yield to his purpose. It j is supposed that they were frightened away. Four negroes were arrested Tuesday by Harrison Ash and were lodged in the Montgomery lock-up, where they will be kept until Mrs. Had ford is able to visit Montgomery and identify or exculpate them. UlKh Water*. Recent ruins have greatly swollen the streams in Virginia, w est Virginia, Ohio, Kentucky and Tennessee, and much damage will doubtless be done.? At Cincinnat I on the -2rd the Ohio was 51 feet and still rising. The Kanawha and Klk have inundated a good portion of Charleston and the capitol building is now surrounded by water. Mr. Tel ford telegraphed from Charleston Tues day morning that the Kanawha was 40 feet there and still rising, and that the back water was four feet deep on Capi tol street. From this the streets must now be used as canals with the people going from place to place in boats.? The Greenbrier was very high Tuesday and Greenbrier llridge could not be reached from this side. A number of people were forced out of their homes at llonceverte. The river was as high as it had been for twelve years. It, however, begun to fall on Tuesday and is now within its banks.

On Sunday and Monday last this sec tion was visited by very heavy thunder storms? the electrical display being very vivid and severe for the time of vear. The old saying that thunder in early spring is a sign of cold weather to follow, was fully verified this week. J. Ii. Wright, of this community, was robbed of $751 while in lloanokc, Va., week before last, and the police of said city telegraphed Mr. Wright re cently that they had the man, whose name we hear is Win. Meadows. Mr. Wright is in Uoanoke this week attend ing the trial. At the (Quarterly Meeting held in the M. E.

Koul I* In y Knaurcltil, Mrs. Zona (ileaster) Shue died in the Kichlands of this county, on the 23rd of January, and her body was taken out to Little Sewell and buried. .Since then ruiuors in the community caused the authorities to suspect that she may not have died from natural causes, in short her husband, E. S., commonly known as " Trout". Shue, was suspected of haying brought about her death bv violence or in some way unknown to her friends. An inquest was accordingly ordered, and, on Monday last before Justice Homer McClung and a jury of inquest, assisted by Mr. Preston, the State's Attorney for the county, Mrs. Sh tie's body wiis exhumed and a post mortem examination made, conducted by Drs. Knapp, llupert and Houston M celling, Shue being present and sum moned us a witness. From one of the Doctors we learn that the examination clearly disclosed the fact that Mrs. Shue '8 neck had been broken. We hear too that Sh tie's conduct at the time of his wife's death and when she lay a corpse in his house was very suspicious. The jury found in accordance with the facts aboye stated, charged Shue with the crime of murder and yester day afternoon he was brought here by .James C. Shawver, John N. McClung and Estill McUlung and lodged 111 jail to await the action of the grand jury. PMr?4MI?l ftf ? It It ?? It Kev. K. L. Telford was in Charleston this week.

She united with the Presbyterian Church early in life under the mlnistra tions of Father McElhenney, whose name she cherished till death. " Lovely by nature, the grace of the Spirit be stowed in youth and nourished until death, had sanctified all her natural gifts.'' She loved the house of (iod. and reverently received the ministra tions of his word. After an illness of some four weeks she was called to her rest, and although the message came| suddenly, she had long been ready, and with her lamp trimmed and burning, she went forth to meet the Bridegroom.

Iteiua. We have had a heavy rainfall, which, with the melting snow, has made big waters. The river is breaking over its banks in some places, and grave fears are entertained that property along its course will be damaged ere it subsides. One of the saddest deaths that has occurred in our town for some time was that of little Herbert, son ol Dr. and Mrs. .1. A. Larue, who died at his home half past three o'clock on last Saturday morning, the 'Jnth, in the 12th year of his age. The evening before he was unusually cheerful, and did not complain in the least of feeling unwell. The next morning he was lying in the cold embrace of death. Although his health had not been good for some time his death was unexpected at the time and its suddenness a great shock to the whole community. Epilepsy, accom panied by paralysis, was the cause of his sudden demise. Herbert was a bright, manly little fellow, and his po liteness and general deportment at home, at school ? everywhere? was ex cellent and endeared him in the hearts of all who knew him. From early in fancy he was the cherished object of parental affection, and the grief of his parents and little sister, Nellie, was very touching, and calculated to awaken the tenderest sympathies of the heart. All day long the house of mourning was crowded with people looking for the last time upon the dear little fellow and trying to console the bereaved ones. His remains were interred in the Oak Grove cemetery on Sunday, the lilst with impressive ceremonies. The be reaved family have the heartfelt sym pathy of the entire community. Let them rejoice in the consolation that he is " Safe in the arms of .lesus." Wni. Mann, of Edray, and Miss Vir die U. ('lark, of Hillsboro, were mar ried at the residence ot the bride's motner, on last Wednesday morning, the 17th inst., by Hev. W. T. I'rice, of Marlinton.

Editor Greenbrier bulejK'ndent : The agitation of the subject of the ; re -assessment of the landH of the State i reminds me that the present manner of ! lump assessment as practiced In this j State is most unequal and unjust. The law should require a separate assess ment of the agricultural value, the timber value and the mineral value, added to tho improvements. This only can give a fair valuation. I n the case of towns the building site value should he assessed separately from the other values. Due consideration should be given to the great prospective decline in lands on account of the growth of the single-tax idea, which 1 think has had a much greater effect in the depre ciation of real estate values than most of us suppose. M. A. Dt'NLAi*. Academy, Feb. 15, "!?7. MoitR llUL'TK THAN MAN. ? TIlO llintou Republican tells of the arrest of K. M. Gallagher, a brakeuian on the (J. ?&U. Railroad, on a warrant sued out by his 15-year old son charging the father with cruel and inhuman treatment. ? For some trivial offence Gallagher jumped on his boy Tuesday afternoon and heat him with a water-hose, the brass nozzle cutting gashes in his head and face, and almost if not quite de stroying the sight of one of his eyes. After he had knocked the boy down on the floor he stamped him with his feet and the heel prints are still plainly per ceptible on his face. The boy was a horrible sight, cut and bleeding when he escaped from his miserable wretch of a father, and popular indignation was aroused to such a pitch that it might not have been safe for Gallagher to have appeared on the streets unac companied by tho otliccrs of the law. ? The man seems to be equally mean and cruel In his ireatment of his wifo, who is said to be a refined and educated wo man. The man who would treat a dog as this man treated his own son de serves to be beaten with a bastinado or huiip up by the ears. Editor Greenbrier Independent : Say to the people of (ircenbrier for me that there are a great many valua ble seedling apples scattered through out our State that are truly worthy of perpetuation. I desire to collect and test these apples at the Experiment Station, and I, therefore, ask your co operation. I desire a few cions from each tree that you know to l>e a natural seedling worthy of cultivation. Tie the cions of the different sorts into separate bundles and give each a num ber. Then write a description of the habit of the tree, the color, flavor and season of ripening of the fruit. We cannot pay for this service, but we will gladly refund the postage. Further, any cions sent will be considered as private property, and no trees or nur sery Btock will be grown from them without permission from the person furnishing theoriginal stock. Origina tor need, therefore, feel no hesitation in sending cions as they will never he used to propagate stock that might come in competition with that grown by the originator or finder Thanking you in advance for any service rendered.

Va., is in the city. Mr. Price comes to Rich mond on a combined trip of business and pleasure. For pleasure he brings his bride on a visit to the relatives and many friends of his mother, who was herself a Richmond lady, and the busi ness he is making out of his trip is to tind some blood relative of J. VV. Da vis. The little story and the mystery with which it is spiced makes it interesting to read, and still more if one happens to have the blood of the lamented Da vis flowing in his veins. More than half a century ago a gen tleman came to Richmond from the section of the Stato which is called now West Virgina, driving before him Li herd of cattle for Richmond's mar ket. While on this trip he saw a small lad named Davis in the poorhouse of the city, and was struck with the hand Home face of the child, and, perhaps be cause he had no children to cheer his own home, he determined to adopt the boy. He was taken home, as carefully reared and trained ;is one could wish his own child, and when a man he proved a friend truly to be leaned upon to the man who had helped him in his need. II is old friend died, lie was his heir, and in coming years he prospered. When almost an old man he married a lady who did not survive him, and no child came to bless their wedded life. Two years ago the man himself died, and left no will, but an estate valued at about $5,n0o. Karly after his marriage Mr. Day is made a will leaving the entire property to his wife. Hut this last testament at her death was burned, and no other was made. So now the property goes first to any one, however distant the re lation may be, who can preve a blood kinship to the deceased man. Should 110 successful claim arise the estate will go to the heirs of the dead wife. ? Rich. Dispatch. Thk numerous friends ofCof. It. P.
