New River Notes — Complete

January 21, 2014

After about two years of work we have completed a major upgrade to New River Notes. On January 21, 2014 we switched in the last of the updated files and final page revisions.

In January 2013 we introduced the new site layout but because there were many pages left to do there was a big red Under Construction on the front page. A year later we've finished all of the pages that were on the original site. Construction is complete. We have a great looking site full of material to help you in your research and possibly entertain you.

We're not finished. A site like this can't just freeze in time. It must be maintained, .... Read More

New River Notes

January 6, 2013

New River Notes, a leading genealogy resource for the New River Valley of North Carolina and Virginia, launched its new look website today.

new river valley mapNew River Notes was originally launched in 1998 by Jeffrey C. Weaver providing New River Valley researchers with a new wealth of information and that tradition is continued today by the Grayson County, Virginia Heritage Foundation, Inc.

Welcome and we hope you enjoy our new look. For more information on the changes and plans see posts on the GCVHF Google+ Page.

    Accomack, together with North Hampton county in 1634, constitute one of the eight original shires into which Virginia was divided, and what is known as the " Eastern Shore " of Virginia. In 1642 it changed its name to Northampton, but in 1663 recurred its original name, taken from hat of a tribe of Indians (Accawmacke), who first inhabited this section of the State. It is bounded on he north by the State of Maryland, South by Northampton county, Va. east by the Atlantic Ocean, and west by the Chesapeake Bay. It has an area of 388 1/2, square miles (248,605 acres), and the land has an average assessed value of $13 per acre. This county is indented on the east and rest by numerous sounds, inlets and maller water courses, which are more or less farmed by Oyster planters and being navigable nearly their entire length, furnish means of transportation to the markets of the large cities of the North and East. The New York. Philadelphia and Norfolk railroad greatly facilitates intercourse and business communication between the people of our own and other States and this section, and make it one of the most favored portions of Virginia. Besides this great actuary of trade the Eastern Shore Steamboat Company gives daily communication with Baltimore from the Pocomoke River, as far down as Hungers Creek, in Northampton, while, during the trucking season, steamers and sail vessels command the creeks leading to the Ocean. Accomack is chiefly renowned for the great production and superior excellence of its sweet potatoes of which it raises four times as much as any outer county, and more than one-fourth of the whole quantity in the State. Varied trucking with the growth of large and small fruits in constantly increasing acreage, bid fair to make in this county a formidable rival to the richly developed lands of Norfolk county. In the growth of Irish potatoes it ranks second, Norfolk being first. Corn, oats and wheat are plentifully produced, and the dairy products are more than sufficient for the needs of the people. Besides oysters of unequalled quality and favor, fish in great variety and finest kinds abound, and are made a source of revenue as well as an important article of food to the inhabitants. Horses, cattle and sheep are raised to large extent, though this enterprise has until late years been much neglected. The educational facilities in this county are very good, there being a number of excellent private as well as sixty-four white and eighteen colored public schools. The principal religious denominations have churches in various parts of the county, in which large congregations hold services weekly.

    Albemarle County, situated at the eastern base of the Blue Ridge mountains, in the far-famed Piedmont region of Virgion, was erected form Goochland in 1744, and is one of the largest, richest and most populous in the State. Ity has for its boundaries on the east the counties of Fluvanna and Louisa; north, Orange and Greene; west, Nelson county and the Blue Ridge mountains which divide it from Augusta, and south, James river, which separates it from Buckingham. The lands in this county which are of a superior quality and in a high state of cultivation are watered and drained in the north by the Rivanna and South Hardware rivers and their tributaries. The Richmond and Alleghany railroad skirts its southern border, while the Chesapeake and Ohio Route travers it from east towest, and the Virginia Midland from north to south. The principal ceral productions are corn, rye, oats, wheat and tobacco. There are a number of large mills, which manufacture in great quantities and superior quality; and the cotton and wollen goods are not surpassed by those made in any other section of the United States. In the value and charater of orchard productions Albemarle is the third county in the State. The Albemarle pippin grown here has a reputation which is world wide. Grape culture is extensively carried on, the principal and most profitable varities being the Concord, Ives, Clinton, and Norton's Virginia. The minerals found in the county are gold, iron, lead, slate, limestone, sandstone, and soapstone. The timbers are oak, chestnut, walnut, locust, pine hickory, chestnut, walnut, locust, pine, hickory, poplar, maple and beech. Charlottesville, Howardsville, and Scottsville are the principle towns, but there are several other thriving villages of mercantile importance. Shadwell on the Rivanna river, is noted for having been the birthplace of Thomas Jefferson. Mr. Jefferson built here in 1806 large flouring mills, and a portion of the walls are still standing. The educational facilities are very great, for besides the University of Virginia (which will be treated in a separate sketch0, there are a large number of private schools and academies for both male and female. One of the finest institutions of the State, and where an incalculable amount of good is being done in the elevation and ennobling of labor, is the Miller Manual Labor School, found by Samuel Miller of Lynchburg, Va. Here boys are taught English, Latin, German, French mathematics, natural philosophy and chemistry, besides receiving a good industrial training in the mechanical and agricultural arts. The county has an ares of 725 1/3 square miles (464,262 acres), and the land has an average assessed value of $11.69 per acre.

  • Charlottesville

    Charlottesville, the county seat of Albemarle, is beautifully and healthfully situtated in the picturesque valley of the Rivanna between the Blue Ridge and Southwest Mountains, at the intersection of the Virginia Midland and Chesapeake and Ohio Railways. It is renowed for being the seat of the University of Virginia, founded in 1819, and for its close proximity to Monticello, which signifies "little mountain," the residence and burial place of Thomas Jefferson, the immortal founder of the Institutution. The University is very justly the pride of the State, and is in a very flourishing condition, its classes being always filled with the most respectable young men from all parts of the Union.

    Charlottesville is 97 miles distant by rail from Richmond, 117 from Washington. The population 6,000, and the society most excellent. The bar of Charlottesville ranks high, some of the most eminent jurists in the State being located here. There are several private besides two graded public schools. There are also a large number of mercantile and manufacturing establishments, besides two banks, two hotels, two weekly newspapers, and one monthly magazine devoted to farming and the grape culture.

    Alexandria county, in 1801, at the time it was ceded to the General Government, was a part of Fairfax county. After its retrocession in 1847, it was made a separate county and named after its principal city. The lands are generally of good quality, and where cultivated readily produce good crops. Some corn, wheat, oats, and rye is raised, but the people pay more attention to the cultivation of irish and sweet potatoes and the fruits and dairy products which find ready sale in the Washington markets. The county is bounded on the north, west and south by Fairfax county, and on the east by the Potomac river.

    The Alexandria canal runs through the county from north to south, connecting at Georgetown with the Cheasapeake and Ohio canal for Haper's Ferry and Cumberland. The Virginia Midland, Alexandria and Washington City, Alexandria and Fredericksburg and the Washington, Ohio and Western railroads furnish means of transportation to all points. The area is the smallest in the State, being but 28 2/3 square miles (18,187 acres). The average assessed value of the land is $43.79 per acre.

    Arlington the former home of the Custis and Lee's in this county opposite Georgetown was confiscated by the Federal Government during the late war, and a portion of it was used as one of the places of burial for those who fell in those fierce and sanguine contests. Nineteen years after the termination of the war, Congress passes a bill to pay Gen. G. W. C. Lee for the property. The portion not taken up by the graves has been given to the negroes, and they have established what is called the Freedmen's village. Hunting Creek, forming the Southern boundary of the city of Alexandria, is a beautiful sheet of water, and has a depth of fifteen or twenty feet. It is a safe harbor for the vessels while waiting to be taken on the ways of the extensive ship building company recently established at Alexandria or which cannot find good or safe anchorage at Washington.

    This county was formed in 1822 from Bath, Botetourt, and Monroe, and has an area of 724 2/3 square miles. Is bounded on the north by Bath, south by Rich Patch and Middle mountains, which divide it from Botetourt and Craig counties, east by Rockbridge, and on the west by the Alleghany chain of mountains, which separate it from Greenbrier county, West Virginia, from which mountains it derives its name. The surface is for the most part mountainous. This region contains large deposits of iron ore, the development of which has recently become a subject of interest to capitalists, many of whom have invested large means in the purchase of lands and erection of furnaces to the end of the manufacture of iron. The Chesapeake and Ohio railway traverses the county connecting with the Richmond and Alleghany railroad at Clifton Forge, in this county, the present western terminus. The Peters and Warm Springs mountains extend through the county in unbroken range, except at Covington at which point there is a narrow gap through which the Jackson winds its way. The passage of the Jackson river through White's mountain is a majestic feature of the sublime natural scenery of this county.

    The northern and middle portion of the county is watered by the Jackson and Cow Pasture rivers, which unite in Botetourt, near the Alleghany line, and form the James. The rich valleys of the south are watered by Pott's and Dunlap's creeks, the principal branches of the Jackson river.

    Covington, the county seat, on Jackson river, is also an important station on the Chesapeake and Ohio railway, two hundred and five miles from Richmond and twelve miles from Clifton Forge, the junction of the Chesapeake and Ohio with the Richmond and Alleghany railroad. Low Moor, on the Chesapeake and Ohio road, eight miles from Covington, is the place of location of the Low Moor Iron Works, which manufacture one hundred and twenty-five tons of iron daily, and employ about six hundred men. There is not only an abundance of corn, oats and wheat besides the dairy and orchard products raised for the uses of the people, but a surplus for market. The raising of live stock is one of the principal industries of the farming population.

    As there is so much mountain land in this county the average assessed value is small, being but $3.12 per acres.

The Appomattox river skirts its entire northern and eastern border, and forms the dividing line on the north between the counties of Cumberland and Powhatan and east Chesterfield. Namozine creek separates it from Dinwiddie on the east. Nottoway county bounds it on the south and Prince Edward and Cumberland on the west. The county is bountifully watered by the Appomottox and its many tributaries, the principal of which are the Namozine, Deep, Winticomack and Flat creeks, each one of which course from northern to sourthern limits of the county. The Richmond and Danville Road traverses the county from north to south, dividing it into two nearly equal parts. The farm lands are very productive, raising large quantities of tobacco (about 2,000,000 pounds annually), of fine grade, besides corn, oats, wheat, and market vegetables and fruits and diary products. There are large mineral deposits, and among them may be mentioned iron, soapstone, plumbago, mica and asbestos. The average assessed value of the lands is $4 per acre.

    This county was formed in 1845 from parts of Buckingham, Charlotte, Campbell and Prince Edward, and has an area of 328 square miles, 201,280 acres. It lies on the south side of James river, and is bounded on the east of Buckingham county, south of Campbell, Charlotte, and Prince Edward, west by Campbell, north by Buckingham, nelson, and Amherst, from which it is separated by James River. The lands are naturally of a fine productive quality, yielding fine crops of tobacco, wheat, corn &c. The minerals are gold, iron, copper, manganese and asbestos. It is traversed by the Norfolk and Western railroad, which extends through the country from east to west, while its northern boundary is skirted by the Richmond and Alleghany railroad. The county seat (Appomattox C.H.) Has become famous in history as being the near the scene of the last struggle of the Southern Confederacy for its independence. This region abounds in large mineral deposits, chief of which iron, is found in large quantities in all the northern part of the county. Average assessed value of lands $4.25 per acre.

    Augusta was formed from Orange, in 1738 and is next to Rockingham, the largest county in the state, having 1,033 square miles, or 666,163 acres. Rockingham county bounds it on the north, the Blue Ridge Mountains on the east, dividing it from Albemarle and Nelson, Rockbridge on the south and the Shenandoah Mountains on its western border, dividing it from Bath and Highland counties and the State of West Virginia. It is at the head of the Shenandoah Valley at its widest part. The North, South and Middle rivers, which form the Shenandoah, water and have their rise in this county. The lands (which have an average assessed value of $13.04 per acre) are immensely rich and productive, and yield large crops of wheat, corn, oats, rye and the grasses. Augusta, in 1880, was the first county in the State in the production of wheat and the Hay crop, raising 522,341 bushels of wheat and 23,931 tons of hay. In the number of horses it ranked first; milch cows third; in butter making and value of farm products second.

    The numerous mountain ranges in the eastern and western parts of the county afford excellent pasturage for horses and cattle and stock of all kinds. Augusta is noted for the large number and superior excellence of its flouring mills, having a larger number and employing more capital than any other county in the State except Henrico, in which the extensive mills of Richmond city are located. There are several distilleries with large capital engaged in the manufacture of very superior whiskey. The timbers found in this county are chestnut, walnut, oak,pine, ash and poplar. The minerals are iron, manganese, marble, slate, coal, kaolin, ocre and limestone. There are many valuable mineral springs, which have acquired celebrity because of their medicinal properties that are visited annually by large numbers, residents of other States as well as of Virginia. The Cyclopean Towers and Madison Cave, near Mount Solon, and Weyers Cave, sixteen miles northeast of Staunton, are among the greatest curiosities of the State. The educational advantages will be set forth in the Staunton description which follows the county matter.

    Staunton, the county seat of Augusta, is on the Chesapeake and Ohio and Valley Branch of B & O railways, at an altitude of 1,500 feet above the level of and 175 miles distant from the sea. It was incorporated in 1871, is the principal city in the Valley of the Shenandoah, and is the point of population the eighth city of Virginia. The climate of Staunton is delightfully salubrious and healthful - its high mountain ranges protecting it from the severe storms that sweep the Atlantic coast on the east and the Mississippi Valley on the west. The Western Lunatic Asylum and the Virginia Institution for the Education of the Deaf, Dumb and Blind are points of interest and worthy objects of the support extended by the State and the pride felt in them by her people. They are imposing and magnificient structures, surrounded by beautifully improved grounds, where the inmates find recreation and enjoyment. In respect to the educational advantages offered by the Female Colleges, we simply call attention to the advertisement of each, in which not alone the school, but the city as well is fully and beautifully described. Staunton bids fair to become very soon the center of large iron manufacturing interests, there being already operated here several machine shops and agricultural implement manufacturing establishments. There are several other manufactories of different kinds besides a large number of first-class mercantile concerns which do a safe and profitable business. The hotel accommodations are excellent and ample, the Virginia Hotel being one of the best in the Valley.

    Population in 1880-White, 3,571 Colored, 961; Total, 4,482.
    County Seat, Warm Springs -- population, 300.

    Bath was organized in 1790 from parts of Augusta, Botetourt, and Greenbrier It contains 619,040 acres, which have an average assessed value of $1.37 per acre. This county is thickly studded with numerous mountain ranges, which furnish excellent pasturage for the horses, cattle and sheep that are annually raised here. The valley lands, though small in area, are quite rich, and produce good crops of corn, oats and wheat. The dairy and orchard products are more than sufficient for the need of the people. In point of population Bath is one of the smallest counties in the State, Warwick and Craig only being smaller. The Alleghany mountains bound Bath on the west, dividing it from the State of West Virginia. Mill and Walker's mountains on the east separate it from Rockbridge and Augusta, while the counties of Highland and Alleghany bound it on the north and south. The Warm Springs mountains divide the county into two nearly equal parts, the eastern of which is drained and watered by the headwaters of the Cow Pasture nitti the western by the headwaters of the Jackson river. The Newport News and Mississippi Valley railway enters the county of Panther Gap, and extends through It fifteen miles, going out over the Cow Pasture river at the extreme southeastern limit: The climate is dry, healthy and invigorating, and the scenery unsurpassed in the mountains of Virginia. Iron ore, of different variety and in large quantities, is found here.

    Bath, more than any other county in Virginia, is celebrated for its mineral springs, the remedial and restorative properties of which have so often been tried to good effect, after the resources of medical science have been exhausted in vain. Of these health-giving fountains the Warm Sulphur Springs were the first known to the white man. Soon after their discovery they became celebrated for their curative virtues, and even ninety years ago they were resorted to by many visitors at much labor and fatigue. They are five miles from the Hot, eight from the Healing, five from the Bath Alum, and only a few hours' ride from the famous Green brier White Sulphur, the Sweet, the Sweet Chalybeate and the Rock bridge Alum Springs.

    Warm Springs is the county seal and has a population of about thre hundred. It is delightfully situate in the richest and most fertile part of the Warm Springs Valley. The little village of Germantown, one quarter of a mile below, nestled tween the mountains, affords visitor much pleasure. Blowing Cave, in this county, is one of the great natu rat curiosities of the State. It is of the road between the Warm any Millboro' Springs, and near the latter.

    This county was formed in 1753 from Lunenburg, and has an area of 769 1/3 square miles, or 492,359 acres. The average value of land is $6.63 per acre. It lies at the eastern base of the Blue Ridge mountains, which form the natural boundaries between it and the counties of Botetourt and Roanoke on the west. The James river skirts and forms its northern boundary dividing it from Amherst, while the Staunton river shapes and bounds it on the south, separating it from Franklin.

    The Richmond and Alleghany railroad, extending along the south branch of the James river in this county, and the Norfolk and Western through its middle part from east to west, furnishes convenient, rapid and cheap transportation to all the principal markets of the North and West.

    The county is irrigated by the waters of Goose creek and Otter river, the latter giving name to the celebrated Peaks of Otter, the sublime and magnificent grandeur of which it has inspired the soul of the poet, and moved to noble effort the pencil of the artist. They are the loftiest, with few exceptions, in the Southern States, having an altitude above the level of the sea of over 5,200 feet, or over a mile. They can be distinctly seen on clear days from Lunenburg, in Campbell county, 25 miles distant.

    This is one of the richest, most productive and thickly settled counties in the valley of the James, yielding annually large crops of wheat, corn, rye, oats and tobacco. In 1880 it ranked in the production of oats, second, tobacco third; in the number of horses raised, sixth; mules fifth; and fourth as to number of mulch cows, quantity of butter, and value of orchard products. The character of the mountain lands in the western part of the State is most excellent for grazing, and some of the finest specimens of horses, cattle and sheep are raised on them. This count is rich in minerals, iron, barites, mica, slate, lead and limestone being found in large quantities and of superior quality. The timber land is extensive and valuable - the principal kinds being chestnut, walnut, hickory, pine and white oak.

    Liberty, the county seat, on the Norfolk and Western railroad, is the important and flourishing centre of a fertile and beautiful country. It has a large number of tobacco manufacturing and other concerns, besides two banking institutions and many mercantile houses of good business standing.

    Bland was formed in 1860 from Wythe, Tazewell and Giles. It is one of the mountain counties, bordering on West Virginia, and if it has any internal improvements they have not been reported. There seems, however, to be some hopes of a narrow guage road being built here at no distant period. This county is very mountainous, and but thinly settled, it being in point of population the fourth smallest in the State. It has for its boundary on the north the East River Mountains, separating it from Monroe County, West Virginia; on the south, Walker's Mountain, which divides it from Wythe County; Tazewell bounds it on the north and west, and Giles and Pulaski on the east.

    The Valley lands are very rich, and where cultivated readily produce good crops of corn, rye, oats, wheat and the grasses. The county is watered by Walkers and Wolf creeks, and branches which are tributaries of the New River. There are several mineral springs, the Sharon Alum bring the most celebrated. The minerals found in this county are coal, iron, lead, zinc and silver. The timbers are pine, walnut, oak, poplar, and ash. There are a large number of saw mills, and much lumber is shipped. Bland Courthouse, situated in the valley formed by the Brushy and Walkers Mountains is a busy little place of about 325 inhabitants, distant twenty miles from Wytheville, the nearest railroad station on the Norfolk and Western Railroad. The area of the county is 297 7/8 square miles, or 190,587 acres and the land has an average assessed value of $2.32 per acre.

    Buchanan was formed in 1858 from Russell and Tazewell and named in honor of President Buchanan. It is on the western slope of the Dividing Ridge of the Alleghany Mountains, which separate it from McDowell County, W.Va., and Russell and Tazewell counties, Virginia. Dickenson, the greater portion of which was taken from this county in 1880, bounds it on the south and the State of Kentucky on the west. This is a very rough and mountainous county, and there being no internal improvements, very inaccessible. The Big Sandy river bounds its extreme northern limits and waters the county by its Louisa and New Garden forks. But little of the land is under cultivation, the census of 1880 reporting but 22,330 of 1,040,881 acres that at that time formed its area. A considerable quantityu of corn and some rye, oats and wheat is raised. The vegetable and orchard productions are sufficient for home consumption, while those of the dairy are the source of considerable revenue. The land on the hills is well suited for the raising of horses, cattle of all kinds and sheep. The minerals are iron, salt and coal, and the timber pine, oak, walnut, hickory and chestnut. The area of the county is 2,294 square miles or 1,468,145 acres [seriously in error], and the average assessed value is 19 cents per acre.

    This county was formed in 1842 from Grayson, and borders on North Carolina. Pulaski and Wythe bound it on the north, Floyd and Patrick on the east, and its mother county and Wythe on the west. The county is plentifully watered by the New river and several of its tributary creeks or forks. Patrick on the east and Wythe and Pulaski on the north and west are cut off by the Blue Ridge and Alleghany mountains respectively. These mountain ranges are specially adapted for the pasturage of horses, cattle and sheep, large numbers of which are raised. The land readily produces corn, rye, oats, wheat, and the grasses; some tobacco is also grown.

    Hillsville, the county seat, population 300, is on Little Reed Island Creek, a branch of New River, about the center of the county, 28 miles from Wytheville, on the Norfolk and Western railroad, with whcih place it has daily mail connection. The area of the county is 551 1/3 square miles, 352,849 acres, and the land has an average assessed value of $1.56 per acre.

    Craig County was erected in 1851 from Botetourt and Roanoke, and borders on the State of West Virginia, from which it is separated by the Alleghany Mountains. Alleghany bounds it on the north, Roanoke, Montgomery and Giles on the south, and Botetourt on the east. The corn and other crops, except grass, are small--not more than sufficient for home use being raised. It has, however, a high reputation for the raising of stock of fine quality. The minerals are iron, manganese, and slate. The timbers are oak, hickory, ash and poplar. The county is watered by the Potts, John's, Sinking, and Craig creeks. New Castle, the county seat, on Craig's Creek, at the foot of North mountain, is the most important town in the county. Its population is 182. There is a daily mail between here and Salem on the Norfolk and Western road, twenty three miles distant. The area is 404? square miles, of 258,727 acres, and the land has an average assessed value of $2.18 per acre.

    Elizabeth City was one of the eight original shires established in 1634, and in area the second smallest county in the State, Alexandria only being smaller. It lies on Hampton Roads, with the Chesapeake bay on the east and Back river on the north, thus being almost entirely surrounded by water. York county is on the north and Warwick on the west. The Newport News and Mississippi Valley Company extends into this county, facilitating the western travel very much. The products of the county are corn, oats and wheat. Fruit and vegetables of all kinds grow well here, and the dairy product is considerable. A large number of the inhabitants are engaged in the crab and oyster fisheries.

    Hampton, the county court-houx, is a flourishing town and port, and the seat of that noble Institution, the Hampton Normal and Agriculture Institute. It is a State institution, and is now one of the most prosperous. Its departments are varied, and very necessary and beneficial. It includes the following branches: Military, an engineer's, a girl's work, printing office and other industrial features.

    Old Point, at the junction of Chesapeake Bay with Hampton Roads, is a favorite summer resort, and one of the finest on the Atlantic coast It has a superior beach for bathing, and the boating and fishing are especially attractive. The United States school of artillery practice is located here, Fortress Monroe being within one hundred yards of the Point.

    Elizabeth City has an area of 49 2/3 square miles, 37,873 acres, and the land has an average assessed value of $34.13 per acre.

    This county was formed from (Old), Rappahannock in 1692. It lies on the south-side of the Rappahannock river, about forty miles northeast from Richmond. The county seat Tappahannock, is a port of entry, and contains about 600 inhabitants. The surface of the county is slightly hilly and its soil, except on the margin of the streams, generally sandy. It pro. duces good crops of corn, wheat and oats, while polates and other vegetables are cultivated, and with the dairy products, are sources of much revenue. There is connection with Baltimore by steamers three times a week, Fredericksburg four times and Norfolk twice a week, and is very ac cessible to all the markets.

    The shad and herring fisheries of this countv are valuable, many men and vessels being employed in them. The cattle raised here is very fine, the greater part being shipped to Baltimore. The county has an area of 252 2/3 square miles, 161,684 acres, and the land has an average assessed value of $5.21 per acre.

    This county was formed in 1831 from Montgomery and named in honor of John Floyd, the then Governor. It is bounded north by Montgomery and Roanoke, south by Patrick, east by Franklin, and west by Pulaski and Carroll, and lives between the Blue Ridge and Alleghany mountains ranges. The surface is generally mountainous and well adapted to grazing. The products are tobacco, corn, rye, oats, wheat, buckwheat--in which it stands first--and the grasses. The orchard and diary productions are large and valuable. The Little river, a branch of New River, and its several forks, water the county. The minerals are gold, iron, copper, lead, manganese, asbestos, plumbago, and soapstone.

    For the last few years the gold excitement has been at a very high pitch, and recent investigations by northern capitalists has shown that gold is to be found in quantities, and, in fact, sales of land and leases have already been made at marvellous prices. Many of the peaks of the mountains afford excellent views of surrounding country, and particularly the famous Buffalo Knob, which is frequently visited by excursion parties.

    Jacksonville, the county seat, is near the centre of the county, and is a thriving inland town of near 500 inhabitants. Hylton is a prosperous little village, situated eleven miles west of the county seat. Graysville, Copper Hill, and Turtle Rock situated in the northern and western portion of this county, are villages of growing importance. The area of the county is 378? square miles, or 242,296 acres, and the land has an average assessed value of $3.54 per acre.

    Giles was taken from Monroe and Tazewell in 1806, and named in honor of Hon. W. B. Giles, one of Virginia's illustrious sons, who represented his district in the Congress of the United States from 1790 to 1802, and was afterward, in 1827, elected her Governor. Giles lies on the western confines of the state, adjoining West Virginia, and has for its northern and southern borders ranges of the Alleghany Mountains. Craig is on the east and Bland on the west. The surface is very mountainous and especially adapted to grazing, the finest cattle shipped from the State being from this county. The land in some parts of the county is very fertile, producing fine crops of corn, oats, rye, wheat and tobacco. The dairy and orchard products are considerable and add greatly to the revenue of the people. The ores found are iron, lead, copper and manganese. Marble of variegated kinds is also found. There are a number of the most excellent springs, the principal of which are the New River White, Hunter's Alum and Mountain Lake. The New River and its several branches extend through and water the county, and the New River Branch Norfolk and Western Railroad, follows the river's course through this county as far as Mouth of East River, where it diverges, going through Mercer County, West Virginia, to its present terminus, Pocahontas, in Tazewell County, Virginia. Pearisburg, the county seat, is one mile distant from Wenonah on the New River, and a station on the New River Railroad. Its population is 300. The county has an area of 354 square miles, 226,585 acres, and the land has an average assessed value of $4.44 per acre.

    Gloucester was formed from York in 1652, and is one of the peninsula counties whose shores are washed by the waters of the Chesapeake. It was named after Gloucestershire, in England, from which place most of the earliest settlers of the county came. The York river is on its south and west, separating it from York and James City counties, and Piankitank on its north, separating it from Middlesex.

    Matthews is on the upper or northern part of its eastern border, Mob Jack bay at its middle and Chesapeake bay at its southern part. King and Queen county bounds it on the west. The farm products, though small, are more than sufcient for home use, while those of the dairy and orchard yield good profits. Marl in great abundance is found in this county. The fisheries of Gloucester are valuable and extensive, employing large capital and many hands. The Mob Jack bay oyster is thought by many to equal in quality and flavor those of the world-renowned Lynn. haven bay. This county is noted as having been the place of death and burial of Nathaniel Bacon, leader of the rebellion against the domestic maladministration of Governor Sir William Berkely in 1676. It is also claimed by Capt. Smith himself and Stith, another historian, to have been in this county, on the York, that Pocahontas caved the life of Smith.

    Gloucester Court-House, the county seat, is on the Ware river. and has a population of 75. West Point, on the York river, the eastern terminus of the York River division Richmond and Danville Railroad, sixteen miles distant, is the nearest railroad point, There is daily mail communication. The area of the county is 207 1/2 square miles, or 132,916 acres, and the average assessed value is $7.74 per acre.

    Goochland was formed from Henrico in 1727, and named in honor of one of Virginia's colonial Governors. Its southern border is skirted by the James river and traversed by the Richmond and Alleghany railroad, which follows the river's course. It is plentifully watered by the lames and its tributaries on the south and branches of the South Anna on the north. The counties bounding it are Louisa and Hanover on the north, Cumberland and Powhatan on the south, Henrico on the east, and Fluvanna on the west. The farm products are considerable, tobacco of the Orinoco variety being the principal crop. The dairy and orchard yield little or no revenue though such as is raised is of very superior quality. The minerals of this county are gold copper, coal, plumbago, mica, and asbestos. The timbers are pine, oak hickory, poplar and ash, Goochland Courthouse, the county seat, is one mile north of Maiden's Adventure Depot, Richmond and Alleghany railroad, thirty miles west of Richmond, and has a population of about fifty. The county has an area of 281 1/2 square miles-180,183 acres-and the land has an average assessed value of $7.50 per acre.

William Grayson, who was a member of the Virginia Convention of 1788, which adopted the Federal Constitution. The Iron mountain range skirts it on the north and west and Carroll county is on the east. The New river and many of its branches extend through and water the county. The lands are quite fertile, and good crops of buckwheat, corn, rye, oats, wheat and the grasses are made. A great many horses, cattle, and sheep are raised. The dairy and orchard products are not reported as being of much value. The minerals reported are iron, copper, lead, asbestos and soapstone, and the timbers are pine (white and yellow), walnut, hickory, chestnut, and oak. There are no internal improvements. The nearest railroad station is Rural Retreat, 9 miles from the county line, on the Norfolk and Western railroad. Independence, the county seat, is located in a fertile valley, on a branch of the New river, and has a population of about 200. The area of the county is 389 square miles, or 248,979 acres, and the land has an average assessed value of $3.22 per acre.

    This county was formed in 1838 from the western part of Orange and was named after Gen. Nathaniel Greene of the Revolution. It lies on the eastern slope of the Blue Ridge, which separates its from Rockingham and Page. Madison, Albemarle and Orange are on the north, south and east. Standardsville, the county seat, is in the western part of the county and contains about 350 inhabitants. Ruckersville is a small village in the southeastern part of the county. The lands are fertile, producing corn, oats, wheat, tobacco, and the artificial grasses, in great perfection. Fruits, such as apples, peaches, pears, cherries and smaller kinds grow finely and in great abundance. There are dense forests of oak and chestnut. The county is admirably adapted to raising stock and the growth of fine wool. There are several water courses in this county, tributaries of the Rapidan river, which afford ample power for mills &c. A remarkable cascade on the headwaters of the South river, which falls over a precipice of 160 feet is very grand and romantic. No works of internal improvement are in operation in this county. The Virginia Midland Railroad at Barboursville is within a short distance of the county line. The Rockingham turnpike (McAdamized) from Harrisonburg to Gordonsville passes directly through Standardsville and the entire county, and affords ample facilities to the farmers to get produce to market. Copper ore is found in the mountain sections, and small shafts, both horizontal and perpendicular, have been sunk, but with what success is not generally known. It has an area of 160 square miles (102,507 acres) and the average assessed value of its lands is $4.90 per acre.

    Lancaster county was first mentined in the Acts of Assembly with Gloucester and Surry, in 1652, and must have been formed in that year from Northumberland county. It lies on the north side of the Rappahannock, which separates it from Middlesex county on the south; a portion of the eastern part of the county is bounded by the Chesapeake bay, with Northumberland and Richmond counties on the north. The court-house is situated in the northern part of the county, and about eighty-three miles northeast of Richmond. The population has increased several hundred in the last two years, and is increasing rapidly. Many Marylanders and citizens of Gloucester county, Va., are making Lancaster their home, attracted by the oyster and fish industries. The lands produce fair average crops of corn, oats and wheat. The surface is rolling and well watered. Its contiguity to navigable waters renders transportation cheap. The area of the county is 128 square miles--77,957 acres--and the average assessed value of the lands is $8 per acre.

    Lee county was formed 1792 from Russell, and named in honor of Henry Lee, the then Governor. It lives on the eastern slope of the Cumberland mountains at the extreme southwestern angle of the State. The States of Kentucky and Tennessee bound it on the north and south and Scott county on the east. The western part is very mountainous and the land unimproved, but the eastern and valley portions are quite fertile and produce good and abundant crops of corn, oats, rye, and wheat and the grasses. Some tobacco of fine grade is also raised. The orchard and dairy yield handsome revenue. The county is well watered by the headwaters of Powells river, which also furnish a means for the transportaiton of grain and forest products to market. The minerals found in this county are iron (red and brown hematite), coal, barytes and salt. The timbers are white oak, much being the natural growth, and every variety of wood to be found in any other county in the State. Jonesville, the county seat, is a thriving village, located about the middle of the county, and has a population of about 300. The area of the county is 400 square miles, or 256,137 acres, and the average assessed value of the land is $4.20 per acre.

    Loudoun was formed in 1757 from Fairfax. It lies on the eastern slope of the Blue Ridge Mountains, which divide it from Clarke County, Va., and Jefferson county, West Va., Its other border counties are Fauquer and Prince William on the South, and its mother county on the east. The Potomac river waters and skirts its entire northern border, and the Washington, Ohio and Western railroad traverses its central portion from east to west, brining it into easy communication with other section and furnishing means of transportation for the very great quantity of gran and the large number of fine cattle raised in it. There are twenty-five counites in the State having a large area than Loudoun, but its real estate value is larger than any-- aggregating more than nine millions of dollars. The lands are immensely rich and productive. Loudoun takes first rank in the production of Indian corn, averaging one and a quarter million bushels annually. She also stands first in the butter made (500,000 pounds), wool clipped (200,000 pounds) and numbers of milch cows, which exceed 7,000 of finest breeds. In the amount of wheat grown, she is third, with half a million bushels annually to her credit. In number of horses and grass raised she is also third, and in the value of her orchard product fourth. Leesburg, the county seat, is a thriving town of 2,000 population, names after the Lee family, who were its earliest settlers. It is on the Washington, Ohio and Western railroad, 38 miles from Alexandria, and 41 from Washington City. The county has an area of 503 1/4 square miles, 322,173 acrea, and the land has an average assessed value of $29.72 per acre.

    Louisa was formed 1742 from Hanover, and is situated in a rapidly improving and fertile section of the State. The counties of Orange and Spotsylvania are on the north, Fluvanna and Goochland on the south, Albemarle on the west, and Hanover on the east. The North Anna river is on the north and the South Anna flows through and waters the southern part of the county. The Newport News and Mississippi Valley Railway traverses the middle part from east to west, bringing into convenient communication Richmond city, its principal market and connecting at Gordonsville in Orange, on the edge of this county, with all rail oine to the north and west. The lands in this county are well adapted to the raising of wheat, especially that part in the northeast known as the "Green Spring" section, which is though to have no superior in the State. Corn in paying quantity and some oats are raised. Considerable attention is paid to the cultivation of tobacco, of which two million pounds annually is raised. The minerals found are gold, silver, iron, copper, lead, mica and sand stone. The timers grown are pine, oak, walnut, maple and ash. Louisa C.H., the seat of Justice of the county is a station on the C. & O. Railway, 62 miles from Richmond. It has a population of 350, and does considerable business. The area of the county is 494 ? square miles, 316,483 acres, and the land has an average assessed value of $5.70 per acre.

    This county was formed 1790 from Gloucester. It is one of the Peninsula counties lying between the Chesapeake Bay on the east and Mob Jack Bay on the west. The Piankitank river is on the nothern boundary, thus almost completely surrounding it by water. The East river which runs through the county about its central part, divides it into two nearly equal parts, and called East and West Mathews. Gloucester County is on the east. The only other adjoining county is Middlesex, which is on the north. A fair crop of corn, and some rye, oats and wheat are grown, but not enough to supply home use. The country is renowned for the superior excellence and great quantity of fish and oysters caught in its estuaries, rivers and creeks. Next to Northampton its fisheries yield larger product and have greater value than any other county in Virginia, and the average value is even greater than Northampton. Mathews Courthouse on a branch of East River, is a town of considerable importance. It has a population of about three hundred, and daily mail communication. There are tri-weekly steamers from Baltimore and Norfolk. West Point in King William County, distant about thirty miles, is nearest railroad station. The timbers are pine, oah, and cypress. The area of the county is but eighty-four square miles, or fiftythree thousand seven hundred and eighty-nine acres, and the land has an average assessed value of $11.12 per acre.

    Montgomery was formed in 1776 from Fincastle which had been previously erected in 1772 from Botetourt but which was extinguished in 1776 by the division of its territory into Washington, Montgomery and Kentucky counties. Craig county bounds it on the north, Floyd on the South, Roanoke on the east and Giles and Pulaski on the west. Much of the county is mountainous, but that portion susceptible of cultivation is very rich and productive, and yields fine crops of corn, oats, wheat, the vegetables and the dairy and orchard products. The county is watered by the New river and the headwaters of the Roanoke, and traversed by the Norfolk and Western railroad, which furnishes transportaion to the markets of Lynchburg, Norfolk and the North through its eastern connections, and Memphis, Louisville, Cincinnati and the South through its western connections. Christiansburg the county seat, is a station on the Norfolk and Western railroad and is a growing and thriving town of 1,000 population, surrounded by a rich country. The Montgomery Female College, one of the finest institutions of learning in this healthful section of the State, is located here. The principals have associated with them a corps of most talented and experienced teachers, and advantages are offered here second to no other college in the State. Blacksburg, a prosperous and healthy town of 700 is the seat of the Virginia Agricultural and Mechanical College, which has been endowed by the general government by liberal donations of public lands, and is the recipient annually of a munificent appropriation by the government of the State. Central City (Lovely Mount P.O.,) on the Norfolk and Western railroad, twelve miles west of the court house is a thriving town of 1,300 inhabitants. The machine shops of the Norfolk and Western railroad are situated there. The minerals found in the county are iron ore (brown hematite), copper, pyrites, gold in gravel, lead ore, coal and millstone. There are several mineral springs in the county, the principal of which are the Montgomery White, the Yellow Sulphur and the Alleghany Springs. The county has an area of 386 1/3 square miles, or 247,298 acres, and the land has an average assessed value of $7.88 per acre.

    Nottoway was formed 1788 from Amelia, and named from a trible of Indians by which it was once inhabited. Its mother county is on the north, Lunenburg and Brunswick on the south, Dinwiddie on the east, and Prince Edward on the west. The Nottoway River skirts its southern border, while the Little Nottoway and other tributaries of the Nottoway on the south, and many branches of the Appomattox on the north, extend into and water its different sections. The Norfolk and Western and the Richmond and Danville railroads intersect at Burkeville, furnishing facilities to market for the products of the county. Corn, oats, wheat, and tobacco are the principal crops, the annual yield of the latter--the quality of which is very fine--exceeding one and a half million pounds. Nottaway [sic] Court hosue is the county town, and has a population of 175, and is a station on the Norfolk and Western railroad. The minerals are soapstone and Kaolin, and the timbers are pine, oak, hickory, walnut, chestnut, poplar, cedar and ash. The county has an area of 306 3/4 square miles, or 196,360 acres, and the land has an average assessed value of $4.05 per acre.

    Orange County was formed from Spotsylvania in 1734, and derives its name from the color of its soil. The Rapid Ann river forms its northern boundary, separating it from Madison and Culpeper, with Louisa on the South, Spotsylvania county on the east and e on the west. The lands of Orange are based on a substratum of red clay, and are well adapted to the production of wheat, tobacca, corn and the artificial grasses. The raising of cattle and sheep is extensively carried on, and there is abundant water power on the Rapid Ann and North Anna Rivers. A vein of limestone passes through the county, which is used for agricultural and mechanical purposes. Gold and plumbago are also found, the former in that part of the county adjoining Spotsylvania. The other minerals are iron (brown and red hematite, magnetic), asbestos, marble, fire-clay. The timbes are hickory, oak, walnut, chestnut, and poplar. The Virginia Midland railroad traverses the county form the north to south, and the Potomac, Fredericksburg & Piedmont ( a narrow guage railroad) from Orange C.H. where it connects with the Virginia Midland to Fredericksburg in Spotsylvania county, connecting with the Richmond, Fredericksburg & Potomac R. R. Orange C.H., the county seat, is eighty miles northwest from Richmond, and ninety-two miles southwest from Washington city. It contains a population of about 800. Gordonsville, with 1,000 population, is situated in the extreme southern portion of the county, at the junction of the Chesapeake and Ohio with the Virginia Midland Railroad, is a flourishing and fast-improving town. Montpelier, in this county, was the residence and the place of death and burial of James Madison, President of the United States from 1809 to 1817. Orange has an area of 333 1/3 square miles, or 213,326 acres and the land has an average assessed value of $9.19 per acre.

    Page was formed in 1831 from parts of Shenadoah and Rockingham. It is midway in the rich and beautiful valley of Shenadoah, with the Blue Ridge for its eastern and the Masanutton Mountains for its western boundaries. It is bounded by counties--north, Warren; south, Rockingham; east, Rappahannock and Madison, and west Rockingham and Shenandoah. The south fork of the Shenadoah river flows through and plentifully waters the county. The Shenandoah Valley railroad extends though the entire length of the county from north to south, and is doing much to develop its vast resources. The soilis alluvial limestone, and yielding good crops of corn, oats, wheat and the grasses. Horses and cattle and sheep are extensively raised. Iron ore of fair quality in abundant quantity is found in nearly every part of the county, and several furnaces and foundaries are in operation. Some cooper of rich quality is found in the lower end of the county and limestone and marble in various sections. A superior quality of manganese is found in the northern section of the county, and is being shipped to northern furnaces.

    Luray on the line of the Shenandoah Valley Railroad is beautifully situated in the centre of the Page valley, and commands a superb view of the Blue Ridge and Massanutton Mountains, and no more delightful spot is found is found in Virginia. Its population is about 1,500, and rapidly increasing. Nearly one hundred and fifty new buildings have been erected in the past three years. A fine stream of water, runs through the center of town, and affords good facilities for mill and manufacturing purposes. Good fishing and game in the vicinity is abundant. Limestone, chalybeate and sulphur waters abound. The great Luray caverns, which rival--if they do not surpass--the Mammoth cave of Kentucky, are one mile distant from the town, and have gained for themselve in the past few years a world-wide reputation. No conception of them can be gained of them froma description however, beautiful grand and extensive. They must be seen to be fully appreciated.

    Milnes, with a population of 600 is a growing town in the southern end of the county. It is the site of Shenandoah Iron Company, which employs large capital and great many men.

    The County has an area of 342 square miles or 218, 979 acres, and the land has an average assessed value of $7.82 per acre.

    Patrick was formed from Henry in 179, and is the only county in the State that has extended the honor of its name to any of its subdivisions. It lies on the eastern slope of the Blue Ridge mountains, which separate it from Carroll and Floyd counties. Franklin county is on the north and Henry on the east, while the State of North Carolina forms its southern boundary. Its natural scenery is romantic and wild. The Dan, Smith and Mayo rivers take their rise in this county, and extending through its every part, plentifully water and furnish it with abundant power for the operating of mills and iron and machine works, many of which will now, no doubt, be built, since the extension to the Courthouse of the Danville and New River railroad, which furnishes convenient transportation to market for the manufactures and products. The face of the country is broken, much of the western part being mountainous and unimporved, but the "Meadows of Dan" section and that portion south of the Bull mountains are remarkably rich and productive and well adapted to the growth of tobacco, corn, buckwheat and the grasses. Fine cattle, horses, and sheep are raised, and the orchard, dairy, and garden products are varied and valuable. Patrick is one of the best fruit-growing counties in the State, and many thousand barrels are annually shipped to the northern markets. The increased facilities of transportation will give to the industries of the people such impetus as they have never enjoyed before. The ores found in the country are iron (magnetic), lead, copper, and silver; granite and sand stone are also quarried to some extent. There are several sulphur springs, which have a local reputation. The timbers in which the county abounds, are oak, pine, locust and walnut. Stuart the county seat, is the present western terminus of the Danville and New River (narrow guage) Railroad. It is on the south branch of the Mayo river, at the southern base of the Bull mountains. It is growing and thriving town, and has a population of about 500. The county has an area of 576 square miles, or 368,678 acres, and the land has an average assessed value of $2.58 per acre.

    This county was formed in 1838 from Montgomery and Wythe, and named in honor of the Count Pulaski, a hero of the Revolution. This is one of the rich counties of the far-famed Southwest Virginia. It lies in the valley formed by the Walkers and Poplar Camp mountains, and has for its boundaries the counties of Montgomery on the east and Wythe on the west.
    The lands are very productive, and yield large crops of corn, wheat, oats, rye, &c. The soil is also well adapted to the growth of the artificial grasses, and the raising of fat cattle for the eastern and foreign markets is extensively carried on. Sheep-raising is largely conducted, and mills are in operation for the manufacture of woolen goods, which find ready sale.
    New river traverses the southern portion of the county, and skirts its northwestern boundary.
    The main stem of the Norfolk and Western railroad traverses the county from the northeast to northwest, and the New River branch of the same road extends north, following the course of New River and opening up a rich mineral section. Iron, coal, zinc and lead abound, and there are several mines and furnaces in operation.
    Newbern, the county seat is a thriving place 2? miles south of Dublin, a station on the Norfolk and Western railroad, which place is one of the most extensive shipping points on the line. The population of Newbern is 212 and of Dublin 285. The county area is 329? square miles, and the average assessed value of the land, is $8.90 per acre.

    This county was formed in 1786 from Washington, and lies between the dividing ridge -- Alleghany mountains on the north and Clinch mountain range on the south. Tazewell county is on the east and Scott and Wise on the west. The surface is generally mountainous, and the lands for the most part uncultivated. There are some very rich tracts in the valleys and along the rivers, which produce large and fine crops, far exceeding the average in most of the other counties of the State. The principal cereal productions are corn, wheat, oats, rye, buckwheat and tobacco. The raising of cattle and sheep of improved breed, is extensively carried on, and constitutes one of the principal industries of the inhabitants, many thousands being annually shipped to the markets of the North and Europe.

    The Clinch river and its branches and Moccasin Creek, a branch of the Holston river, extend through and plentifully water the county. The nearest railroad point is Abingdon, in Washington county, on a branch of the Norfolk & Western railroad, six miles distant from its southeast corner. Iron ore (red and bron hematite) is found in various parts of the county, as is also the case with the manganese, lead, barite, and marble. Numerous coal deposits are found in the northern part. Lebanon, the county seat, has a population of 250, and occupies a central position, distant twenty-one miles from Abingdon in Washington on the N&W R.R. with which it has daily mail communication. The county area is 497 square miles, or 318,000 acres, and the average assessed vale of the land is $3.01 per acre.

    This county was formed in 1814 from Washington, Russell and Lee, and is the middle one of the three Tennessee border counties. Wise county is on the north, Washington and Russell on the east and Lee on the west. The surface is for the most part mountainous, the Clinch, Moccasin and Copper mountain ridges stretch through the middle part, Powell's and Stone mountains are on its western confines, and Walker's range crossed its southeastern point.

    The county is well watered by the Clinch river and its branches and the North Fork of the Holston, which while they do not furnish facilities for transportation, are valuable for the operation of saw and other mills and machinery.

    Though the face of the country is as we have stated, mountainous and uneven, yet there is a vast deal of it very productive, and large crops of corn (half million bushels annually), wheat, rye, oats and buckwheat are raised. This section is celebrated for its fine cattle, sheep and other stock, and for the production of maple-sugar, fruit, butter and other dairy and garden articles. Inexhaustible beds of iron ore (red and brown hematite) are found in this county, and manganese, lead, coal, marble of various kinds, and limestone in abundance. There are several sulphur and chalybeate springs, the remedial properties of whose waters are considered fine. Estillville, the county seat--population 150--on a branch of the Holston river, is a thriving place. The extension of the Narrow-Guage road through this county from Bristol in Tennessee, will open up its mineral treasures, which now lie buried awaiting convenient and cheap transportation facilities. The Natural Tunnel, twelve miles west of Estillville, is one of the many curiosities that nature has bestowed on the Old Dominion. Scott has an area of 522 2/3 square miles, or 334,559 acres and the land has an average assessed value of $2.26 per acre.

    Smyth county was formed from Washington and Wythe in 1831. It lies in the valley formed by the Alleghany and Clinch mountains, with Washington county on the western and Wythe and Bland on the eastern borders. The valley lands are very fertile, and the upper lands produce the spontaneous blue grass, upon which large herds of cattle are annually raised. The county is drained by the North, Middle, and South forks of the Holston river, which have their rise in this county, while the Norfolk and Western railroad extends through its middle part east and west. It has been demonstrated by actual experience within the last few years that the county (especially the Rich Valley and Chestnut Ridge sections) cannot be surpassed for the production of tobacco--either fine yellow or heavy shipping. Corn, wheat, oats, and buckwheat are grown in paying quantities, and the diary and orchard products are varied and valuable. Iron ore, limestone and salt are found in great abundance, as are also lead, cooper, gypsum, and marble. Marion the county seat is a thriving, handsome town of considerable business importance, situated about the center of the county, 275 southwest from Richmond on the line fo the Norfolk & Western Railroad, and on the banks of the Middle Fork Holston river. It is the site of the South Western Lunatic Asylum. The county has an area of 511 square miles, 327,294 acres, and the lands have an average assessed valued of about $4.00 per acre.

    This county was formed from Russell and Wythe in 1799, and is one of the extreme southwestern counties, lying on the borders of West Virginia. The surface is very mountainous, and but comparatively a small portion is given to the raising of cereals, the principal of which are buckwheat, corn, oats and wheat. Like all lands in this section of the State, it is very productive in grasses, and the grazing of cattle comprises one of the principal sources of revenue to the inhabitants. Large deposits of coal, iron, manganese and other minerals are found in this county, which have long been underdeveloped on account of its remoteness from public highways. The New River division of the Norfolk and Western Railroad, which extends through the northern limits of the county, has given in recent years great impetus to the mining operations, especially of coal, in this section. There is a great variety of timber among which may be mentioned poplar, white oak, black and Spanish oak, black and white walnut, wild cherry, sugar tree, buckeye, chestnut, hickory.

    The county is watered by the Clinch and Blue Stone rivers, which rise close to each other about 7 miles east of Jeffersonville, the county seat, the former flowing southwest and the latter northeast, both fed by living, never failing limstone springs. There is no county in the State whose water power of such excellence is so little used.

    Tazewell C.H. (Jeffersonville) with population of 750, on the North Fork of the Clinch river, is a thriving place of considerable importance, 18? miles southwest of Graham, a station on the New River Division Norfolk and Western Railroad, with which point there is daily main communication, and is within less than a mile of the Clinch Valley Railroad now building. There is also telephone line from Courthouse to Graham. Tazewell has reguarly constructed water works the water being conducted from a large spring near the top of the mountain, the supply being sufficient for a population of 20,000. It is also well guarded in case of fire, there being many fire plugs in different parts of town. Graham has a population of 200 and is a rapidly growing town. Pocahontas, the terminus of the New River Railroad has sprung up in the past two years and is the location of one of the largest coal mines in the State, employing several hundred operators and large capital. The population is estmated at 5,000, and increasing rapidly. Tazewell county has an area of 525 1/3 square miles, 536,250 acres, and the land has an averaged assessed value of $3.81 per acre.

    Washington lies in the southwest portion of the State, the Clinch mountain, which separate it from Russell, forming the norther and the Tennessee line the southern boundary, with Smyth and Grayson counties on the east, and Scott on the west. The county was formed in 1776 from Fincastle, and contains 602 square miles. It is watered by the three branches of the Holston river--North, Middle, and South forks--which afford a variety of excellent fresh water fish. The Norfolk & Western railroad extends through the middle part. The character of the ocunty is undulating, the soil fertile and productive, abounding in the spontaneous growth of blue grass and adapted to a high state of cultivation of clover and other grasses. Fruits of various kind-apples, pears, peaches, plums, grapes, &c--grow to perfection. Abundant crops of corn, wheat, rye, oats, tobacco, hemp, &c., are raised annually.

    The raising of improved breeds of horses, cattle and sheep is extensively carried on in many parts of the county. Inexhaustible beds of gypsum (plaster) and salt are found on the north fork of the Holston, and have been profitably worked for many years.

    Some of the finest mineral waters to be had anywhere are located in this county. There are valuable springs in the county, whose waters are sulphur, chalybeate and alum. This county is celebrated for the number and high order of its institutions of learning, in front rank of which stands the Southwest Virginia Institute for young ladies, situated at Glade Spring.

    Abingdon, the county seat, is 189 miles west of Lynchburg, and 15 miles east of Bristol, Tennessee on the Norfolk and Western Railroad. Population 2,500. Its elevation above the level of the sea is 2,011 feet.

    It is noted for its fine schools and colleges bracing and salubrious climate, besides being a place of considerable importance as a manufacturing, commercial and shipping centre. Large numbers of cattle, horses, mules and sheep are shiped annually from this point to the different markets and it is the largest tobacco manufacturing town west of Lynchburg.

    Saltville, in this county, at the terminus of a nine mile branch of the Norfolk and Western railroad, is the site of the great salt works, which furnished the supply for the use of the Confederate States during the late war.

    Goodson, on the Tennessee line, is a commercial town of considerable importance. The boundary line between Virginia and Tennessee divide Bristol from Goodson, but they are practically one town, and Bristol has, therefore, been inserted with Goodson in the county formation.

    The average assessed value of the land is about $6.78 per acre.

    This county lies at the eastern base of the Cumberland mountains, in the extreme southwestern portion of the State, and was formed from Russell, Lee and Scott in 1856, and named in honor of General Henry A. Wise, the then Governor. Some of the finest timber lands in the State are found in this county. There is also an abundance of the finest coal and coke and very large beds of iron ore; also, very fine mineral springs. The surface is very broken and the county sparsely settled. The valley lands are quite rich, and large crops of Indian corn and buckwheat are raised, as well as oats and wheat. This county is also noted for having some of the finest grazing lands in the State. It is a fine fruit-growing section. The county is well watered by the Guests and Powells rivers, tributaries of the Clinch, in the southern and eastern portions, and by the branches of the Big Sandy in the northern part. Wise C.H. is about the center of the county, and has a population of 200. Estilville, in Scott county, is the nearest railroad point. It contains an area of 783 1/3 square miles, and the lands have an average assessed value of about 65 cents per acre.

    Wythe County was formed from Montgomery in 1790. Its county boundaries are Bland on the north, Carroll and Grayson on the south, Pulaski on the east, and Smyth on the west. The greater part of the county is a mountain valley, included between Brush mountain on the northwest and Iron mountain on the southeast. There are several other mountains within the county, the two largest of which are known as Walker's and Dick mountains, dividing the county into three fertile valleys--Walker's Creek, Wythe Valley and Cripple Creek. Wythe Valley is an elevated table land, about 2,000 feet above the level of the sea.

    The Norfolk and Western Railroad extends through the middle of the county from northwest to southeast, furnishing most excellent transportation facilities. The county is watered by New River, Reed Creek, Cripple Creek, Walker's Creek, and Peak Creek. The soil is well adapted to raising grain and the grasses.

    Wytheville, the county seat, is on the line of the Norfolk and Western Railroad, 248 miles southwest from Richmond, and 55 miles from Abingdon, and contains a population of 3,000. The vicinity is rich in minerals, iron, lead, zinc and coal being abundant. Large investments have recently been made by northern capitalists in this locality, and Wytheville is destined to become a manufacturing town of no little importance. Very considerable interest is being manifested in the development and utlization of the various minerals. The town is well supplied with schools and churches, and the society is excellent, being largely augmented during the summers months by visitors from all parts of the South and Southwest. A fine mineral spring has recently been discovered near by, and its waters are conveyed in pipes to the centre of the town, forming a no inconsiderable attraction to visitors. A handsome park will soon be laid out near the centre of the town, and the waters referred to conveyed to a fountain to be placed therein. Within a short distance from Wytheville is located the State fish hatchery, which, under skillful management, is rapidly supplying the waters of Virginia with an abundance of the best varities of fish. As a business center Wytheville presents a more attractive appearance than any other town in Southwest Virginia. Wythe has an area of about 567? square miles, and the lands have an average assessed value of $7.40 per acre.
