so in this county. He is here for the pur
pose of securing an interest in these miues,
which, with his experience and knowledge
of the subject of mining, may be regarded
as a favorable omen as to the character of
this property. It is held by men of solid

She U here far thepurpose of prosecuting

Krone, of this count v. It is situated near
the Island Creek gold mine, in Montgom
ery, the right to which latter was contest
ed some years ago, and aftera tedious
suit, runuing through a life time, was fi
nally decided in favor of the Nail repre
sentatives, and is now the property of
Mrs. Smith. She is the ueice of the dis
tinguished Presbyterian Evangelist so
well and favorablj- known in the Southern
States as a great revivailist ; and like her
venerable nncle, is a person of fine appear
ance, aud one of the best talkers I have
e-ver met. -
Mr. Biles, the proprietor of this place,
is oue of the really substantial men of the
county, and though iu his 7Dth year, is
yet a pretty vigorous man, retaining his
faculties in" a good degree. Blessed with
a good memory, he can entertain his
friends with stories and incidents of the
''long ago," by the hour. I had a seven
miles buggy ride with him last Saturday
morning, and though we traveled at a
rate tru'y merciful to the twenty -year-old
mule iu the harness, (which kind treat
ment has kept in excellent conditiou,)
time and weariness were lost in the cheer
ful conversation we had by the way.
While passiug under a dogwood tree on the
road-side, we frightened a big black snake
which was stretched across its lower limbs,
watching to spring on the first bird that
might fiy into the tree, aud he fell on the
mule's back, but quickly wriggled off, and
landed on the ground in time and position
to have both the fore and .hind wheels of
the buggy to cross his back. By purely
"good luck," I suppose, he was not dam
aged either by the fall or the wheels, but
slipped away into the bushes as though
nothing had happened. I said to the old
gentleman "if it had fallen across our
knees it would have made us jump!"
"Yes," aud he laughed at the thought, aud
went on to say: "I'm not afraid o. snakes,
but never took that foolish pride in hand
ling them that I have seen some meu take;
nor have I ever approved of the habit of
that mischievous disposition sometimes
met with among young people of searing
others by throwing dead suakes at or
near them when they are not expecting
such a thing. It is dangerous to produce
such frights as thoughtless people some
times make in that way." And he then
related the story of a lad in his neighbor
hood when he was young, who was sent
out into a pasture to bridle and bring in
a horse that -was feeding in the field. The
lad went off with his arm through the
headstall of the bri-lle aud the reins held
up in his hand. And while walking
through the rank weeds, being nervously
afraid of snakes, something frightened
him and made him jump, and thinking it
was a snake, looked back and saw a "ra-
as he thought,
at his heels. He
broke aud ran with all hU might, yelling
at every jump, "so-ho ! daddy! so-bo !
daddy!" and never stopped until he fell
into the door of daddy's house, in a f.iiat
ingconditon. It was ascertained at once
that there was no sijake in the case, but
the black reins of tl:t bridlu trailing be
hind him, a glimpse of which he often saw
as ho made his dreadful race, was the
only foundation for his big scare.

1 nereis a perceptible improvement in

Stanly embracing the valley of the Yad

the improvement of residences and farms
and farm houses. But the most gratify

The neighborhood is thickly settled by an
intelligent and thriving people who take
a very lively interest in the school, and
through whode efforts in its behalf, it is
attracting pupils from this aud adjoining
counties. 1 he country is. very healthy,
auu ooaru and tuition low. The present
proprietors of the school, Messrs. (J. C, and
"i1 Haiuilton brothers, are graduates
of Trinity College, and their success as
teachers for the last two j ears is the best
evidence of their 'qualifications for the re
sponsible duties they are discharging. The

In the midst of this wilderness is the
grave of a woman. This lonely spot of
sepulcheris known as "Beck's grave;
and the history of it is brief. She was a
slave woman, the property of his worship
ful John CrarapwlK lived and died ou
the estate novr held by Mr. J. F. Cot
ton, and whose remains, with those of his
wife, were buried ou the hill whereon his
late residence formerly stood. It was
more than sixty years ago when Beck
with a jovial company went through this
wilderness to the "Falls" to spend Easter
with the people who were wont iu those
times to assemble there iu great numbers
to catch fish, eat ginger cakes, drink cider
ryal, and spend the day in pleasure-seeking.
Easter was then an annual re-union
of the people for miles around a hap
py day for all classes iu which the
slaves were allowed to share. Tradition
hath it that Beck was very happy on that
fatal day, and took rather more drink
than she could safely carry home. She
lingered behind her company in the even
ing returning, and fell in this wilderness,
under what precise circumstances could
never be ascertained, though conjecture
connected her death with the free indul
gences of the day. When found the con
dition of her body rendered it necessary
to make the burial without delay, and
with little ceremony, near the spot ou
which she lay. The pines above her grave
yet sing iu every breezy a moaning an
them, subdued but grand and solemn.
Few have a more undisturbed resting
place, or a wilder domain to wander i:; if
spirits may return' to earth.
Near Beck's grave is a mound of stones,
now only about five feet high ami twenty
eight feet in diameter, supposed t have
been thrown up by the -aboriginal inhabi
tants of the country. It lias nevijr been

The south-southwest bend of tho river
forming the boundaries of this wilderness
is the point at which the "Falls" are to be

off abruptly, showing n rocky cliff vary

seem to have cut uuav the earth and

look as if they must fall in a moment.
Both here and at the Narrows, 2$ miles

the river and the rocky ridges of the land.
How long the ceaseless din and roar of
conflict has gone on can uevor be know u.

The river here is much wider than at
the Narrows: Tho "Falls" are a suc

the river, mostly under water, but in
places standing above it. Here and there

The water scenery here is nothiu" to
eompare to the Narrows where the whole
volume of the river, more than 1200 feet
wjde above, is driven with fury through a
space of only (jo feet. The Narrows are
nearly half a mile long, varviusr in this
distanpe froin (JO to 100 feet in width, and
though there nothing like a cataract the
waters rush through with a force almost
equal to o;;e.
Bnt no description of the scenerv either
at the Fajls or the Narrows can convey an
adequate .idea pf it. It must be seen
to be appreciated, The geologist will find
these places abounding with interesting
subjects of inqnjry and thought. It would
seem that the prpgent course of the river
is not the original one, but that these
rocky barriers at one time checked and
turned it ;n spme other route ; and that
its passage here U due to some accidental
cause- some great freshet or succession of
freihetsT which tore a way between these
rocky hill, the ips of which are little
less than 500 feel above the bed of the
it rer. The Stale geologist, if he has nev
er visited ilia portion of the State, might
confer valaalrio benefits ou the people
by an inspection of. the country with re
ference to agricultural and mineral devel
opments ; and taking in the Narrows and
Falls as a diversion or a study, find them
entertaining or profitable. The mineral
character of this neighborhood has long
been known to some extent, but it is be
