We me Peter Hoop Sen, on the street the other day. ; He has entirely recover ed from, the effects of Jiisjbroken. Jeg. He is 75 years of age, and is nearly as lively as he was thirty yars ago, "when we first became acquainted with him, when he was building the old steam mill, south of Oak Hill. Mr, Hoop is a native of Shenandoah county, Virginia. He was raised in Highland county, and was married in Adams county, and resided there for many years. Mr. Hoop has al ways been an honest, upright business man. Three of his sons now reside here, his youngestson, Peter Hoop jr., being one of the owners of Globe Furnace. We called on Philin Vest and wife last Friday. They are natives of Buckingham county, Virginia. He was born in the year 1800, and is 73 years of age. She was born in-1805. They have been mar ried 53 years. Their youngest child is Mrs. John Swanson, of this place. These old folks came to - Jackson in the vear 1840, and have resided here ever since. The old man has not been able to work for the past five years. -He is quite help less, and rather childish. He'is a cooper by trade, and made flour barrels for many years for the Brick Mill in this place. Mother Vest is quite cheerful, and was engaged in sewing when we were there. She is a good, Christian lady. She said she had sewed for some of the business houses in Jackson for twenty years' serving them faithfully, but now the proprietors seem to have forgotten her. She still supports herself and her aged companion by sewing, and they re side in their own little home on Church Street.' ' Rev. C. H. Warren was at this place from Saturday to Monday. His first year as a Methodist preacher was on the old Jackson circuit, in 'the year 1842. The circuit then embraced about 400 miles, and required four weeks to get around it. Mr. Warren was at Jackson from 1855 to 1857, he being the first preacher here after Jackson was made a s'tation. He is a good, kind hearted man. He has been at Kelsonville, Athens county, for the past three years. MERCANTILE. FARMERS !
