A young man giving his name as G.
W. Inscor from Marion, X.C., enlivened
the air on the oth with a romance
which was interesting as well as im
probable, lie says that his brother John
a miner, was authorized not long ago
by one Charles Austin.of Asheville,N C.
to proceed down the Tennessee until he
came to a blulF answering the descrip
tion written on a 4 way bill' left to Mrs.
Austin by her father, Mr. Uoon?, on
his death bed. The narrative claimed
that in time far past Borne had hidden
six thousand in gold coin and one
thegand dollars north of gold dust. The
hiding place described corresponded
with the ledge in the face of Paint
Jtock bluff, sixteen miles below Gun
tersville. So the story goes that this
Johu Inscor stopped and tapped face of
the bluff two hundred feet above the
water until on July 4th he struck a
cemented recess, which soon yielded to
the blows of his hammer and revealed
a small sheet iron box containing the
treasure as al'eged.The narrator claims
that John Inscor left on the 6th for
Asheville with the treasure. Gunters
