--The place where Gen. Floyd repulsed the Yankees, in Western Virginia, is really named Corrick's Ford, though it has passed current for some time as ‘"Carrack's Ford." ’ It is in Tucker county. Carnifax Ferry, another well known place in the manuals of the present war, has heretofore here called and spelled ‘"Carnifax Ferry."’ The latter is in Nicholas county. Both places are named after individuals now living in their immediate vicinity.
