--Cabet Scott, of Cathey’s Creek, Tenn., died several months ago, and his wife told the members of the household that soon after the beginning of the war he placed money for safe-keeping in an old wheat house on the premises. The lady being old and infirm, little attention was paid her, but finally the family concluded to make the search to quiet her, and to their astonishment, they found buried in a barrel of ashes in the old wheat house $175 in gold and $45 in silver in a cow horn, and $90 in a cloth. They are now looking for a tea-kettle which Mrs. Scott says is hidden filled with money somewhere around the place.—Louisville Courier Journal.
