Mr. Wileon has left the Virginia

The shooting of Jeff in the
Btable lot of the Virginia House on
Sunday evening 'eeema to hare been
a mistake, the murderer mistaking
him for his intended victim. The g(!H
was doubtless the one advertised aa lost
by Willie llnrdgrove. It was an at

usual there was a lady in the case.

6100 REWARD.
Collector David Good, of Fulkerson,
Scott County, died on Saturday night.
Before he died he made a statement
which we will publish in full next
week, and offers $100 reward for the
arrest and delivery of his murderer,
Wm. J. Hensley, whom he describes
as 45 years of age, weight 140, height 5
eet 10 inches, spare made, dark com
plexion, dark hair, bald on top of head
front tooth out, and rather mild in
conversation.
Our exchanges please copy.
Horse Training for the Border Fair.
Mr. J. C. Conway has just purchased
of Messrs, Cross & Crosby, of Chatta
nooga, or rather has had them to meke
to order for him, a complete trotting
outfit, consisting of the lightest and
most elegantly Quished Sulky and har
ness we have yet seen in the country
The entire weight of the Sulky ij
eighty-nine pounds. livery particle
of metal in it is steel, including even
the tire. As a bit of elegant mechau
icism we had no idea the like of it
could have been produced anywhere
in the South. It is designed express
ly for the trotting races at the next fall
'airs, and particularly for the Bristol
Border Fair.
Parties intending to train theh
horses for that occasion would do wel1
to employ MY. Conway, who is par.
ticularly skilled in the business, and
i9 now equipped for it as no one else
has ever been in this country.
The wood work of the Sulky is all of
second-growth hickory, the hubs are
of the new emperor patent, and the
bridle is double-bitted. The whole
outfit looks as light as an ordinary
long-legged spider.
Murder in Scott. On Monday or
Tuesday of last week. Collector David
Good, of Fuliceiwn Township, in
Scott county, near the Washington
county line, was shot and we fear mor
tally wounded by Wilburn J. Hens
ley. Mr. Good tad levied on Hens
'ey's cow for taxes and having driven
her away she was followed and driven
back. Hensley procuring a guard
Good returned for the cow, and was
driving her away, when Hensley shot
him, using a rifle gun, of large calibre,
the bail passing through the muscle of
the arm and into the body, passing
through one. of the lungs and lodging
against the-sternum. He was carried
away by hfs guard and was, at our
latest advic-es, not expected to recover
He is a young man, a son of Spencer
Good and a brother of Rev. Martin
Good of the M. K. Church, South.
The Good family "have all been re
publicans, but David at the last elec.
tion voted the conservative ticket and
was elected by that party. Hensley
wiio slew him hat always been a radi
cal and is a very dangerous man. He
was iu the Mexican war. Mr. Good is
being waited onjby Dr?. Spurgiu and
Helton. Hetsley is now at large an
at least 100 men have been iu pursuit
of him.
Called W'c are reliably informed
that Elder B. G, Mauard has declined
a call to Sweetwater, Tenn.. having
beea elected to the Presidency of the
Bristol Female College, a position at
present filled by Prof, Morrisette.
ro&dnctf.yir. Sam'l. M. Smithson
was badly poisoned on last Friday, by
swallowiug Tartar Emetic. Dr. Vance
had directed him to take Cream of
Tartar, and after the Doctor had left
Mr. S. asked Mr, Galloway to go to
the drug store and procure for him
tome Tartar Emetic. When Dr. Pep
per filled Mr. Galloway's verbal order
he took care to write on the nackace
the amount to betaken for a dose. With
out noticing the directions, however,
Mr. Smithson mixed two teaspoonfuls
of it, and immediately exclaiined h
believed it -vould burn him up. Phy
sicians were summoned in all possible
haste, and we are glad to state that he
is now thought not to be in any eerious
danger. The error was wholly his own,
aa we are informed,
A Trip to Eagle Furnace. On last
Tuesday, ihe writer of this, accompa
nied by Mr. J, M. Barker, visited the
Eagle Furnace, five miles S. W. of
Bristol, wb'e're we spent very pleasant,
ly, a portion of tbe day, with the cul
tivated and. hospitable lessees, Mers.
Benjamin Gallop, & Son: These gen
tlemen have leased for five years, of
Mr. Riley Stone, 60 acres, including
the furnace, which now being remod
died and improved so as to increase its
capacity very largely. The pioprie
tors have already erected a new store
house and have therein, quite a hand-
8drae stock of new go&ds. Coal hous
es and other buildings are being erec-
tedf and every preparation made for a
$ery active business. We witnessed
the arrival of a platform Scales,' capa
ble of weighing five tons, and to be
used Id ascertaining the weight of all
coal, ore, and other material purchas
ed. Col. Gallop is a successful! iron
manufacturer, and will, we tbinfc, do
much to develop the great Interest in
our vicinity. We hope our Count
authorities of Sullivan, Will tiavfi th"
road from Bristol to the FurnaVe; pu
under one management, and that I (
will be superintended by aome one1
who will at once have'it put in excel"
ent ordtr.-
jJicuntvUie QuarterFj Court, sal
yesterday. The Kerjdrick's Creek
difficulty, was settled by the agree
ment on tht part of the County, to re
lease the contractors, and to take tbe
Bridge, which it will proceed to re.
pair and cover.
The Court also agreed to release from
taxation, all new manufacturing en
terprises. J. II. Cross was elected County
Surveyor.
We regret to state, that the Court
rejected the new Road law. This cer
tainly tends to drive out enterprise
and manufactures.
Two gentlemen from the upper endf
announced themselves candidates for
the Legislature
Col, I. B. Dunn is now able to drive
to town, using his left arm only, as
the right shoulder is yet incapable of
voluntary motion. He Is otherwise,
in excellent health, and we hope to
see this impediment removed, within
a reasonable time.
DM. Mr. Wiley Carmack died
on last Friday, at ' his home some
three miles in the country. He was
a very excellent citizen.
Great Soutlvem Menagerie, Thu
comprehensive and elaborate estab
lishnient pronounced one of the
greatest combinations of caravan,
museum, hippodrome, aquarium and
circus on the road with all its
colossal and wondrous proportions,
will visit our city on Friday the 17th
inst. Of the excellence and perfect
completeness of this grand organiza
tion, tbe press have been mot lavish
in their praise wherever it has been
this season- The menagerie depart,
ment is probably the most choice
feature of this elegant show, except
ing only the circus. So great is the
display affordeded' for an apprecia
tive public instruction that no less
than twelve massive centre poles are
required to exhibit it properly. The
new and original idei of a double
circus performance is not only
felicitous and happy, but strikes the
beholder as a decided innovation npon
the old order of things . A double
ring with a dual company performing
two acts in as insny rings at one time,
is a certainly new era iu the sawdust
business. We look fur a big turnout
of our good peop'.e .

acrid, thick and tenacious, mucous,

voice altered, nasal twang, offensive

symptoms are likely to be present in
any ease at one time. No disease is
more common or 'less understood by
physicians. The proprietor of Dr.
Sage's Catarrh Remedy will pay 5500
reward for an incurable case.
HEAD WHAT JT WILL DO.
Bkookvii.t.k, Pa., April 27, 1872,
Dr. R. V. Pikbcb.
Sir Having first applied to a num
ber of home physicians and failed to
get relief", I resolved to try your Reme
edy. Four bottles have completely
cured me of one of the worst cases
of Catarrh of which I have any know
ledge, having suffered for mouths with
an acute pain in the head, and hrethed
only with the greatest difficulty. I
deem it due you as well us suffering
humanity that this recognition be
made of what we deem an invaluable
medicine,

willing to sell at and below cost, but a

GUGGENHEIMER & 0.
Have determined that their custonieis
shall reaiize the benefit of these bar
gains, and have marked such a small
margin of profit on their Stock they
can confidently promise to sell
Dry (ioodt, shoe,
Hats, Carpeting
Motions, Fancy Giod
and 1 rimming
Cheaper than any House In (he State.
They deem it unnecessary and im
fos$iblc to give a list of Prices of the
Stock.
Unnecessary because If you can buy
the sume goods at less prices from any
other house you can return the pur
chases made from their's.
Impossible, because in the present
"uncertain times" the prices of some
goods are varying every day.
Merchants Thoughout the
Country
will find in their Wholesale Depart
ments as complete a Stock ijf all
Links as they could possibly desire
and at as low prices as they can buy
them iu the Eastern cities.
They promise to meet fairly and
squarely the Price Lists of any other
houses, even in certain lines of goods,
offered at less than market rates, as
Decoys.
