FRIDAY EVENING. AUGUST 5.
Those who leave tho city daring the sum?
mer ran have the Gazkitk mailed to them for
?ny length of time, and tho address chanced as
often as desired. Tho subscription price is 50 cts.
per month, or at that rate for a greater or less
-js?-Subscribers who fail to receive the Gazette
regularly will please report such failures to this
ofiico promptly. _
For this seotion occasional showers, warm?
er, southerly winds, followed by cooler
weather during Saturday night.
Mount Vernon Avenue.?The Wash?
ington Republican of this morning has the
?iuimidiate st-ps ought to be taken to
make a splendid dnve from the Virginia
terminus of the Aqueduct bridge to Mount
Vernon. Two and a quarter miles of this
road would pass through tbe government
property at Arlington, nearly five miles
i h rough Alexandria county, and seven xnile3
through Fairfax count)', Va. A grand ave
uue, one hundred feet wide, properly
graded, macadamised aad shaded, should
cover the distance between the capital city
of the nation aud the tomb of its great foun?
der. This avenue would connect Alexan?
dria with Washington. It would cause vil
uelongicg to tho wealthiest citizens of
the nation to be built along aud near tbe
iv uue. It would add vastly to the pros?
perity and wealth of Washington, and the
load mg citiz 'iis of Washington should move
iu the matter at once. Alexandria is most
j interested in this question. Such an I
avenue would give the citizens of that his-J
loric oil) two splendid drives, one to Wash?
ington und the other to Mount Veruon. It
would fake hundreds of tho citizens of
Washington every pleasant day to and
through Alexandria, and most of them
would spend more or less of their spare cash
in pausing. It would give a new competi?
tive line of travel to Washington. It
would benefit the people of Alexundria
county in very many ways. It would ad?
vance tbe price of all real estate within
some miles of the avenue. It would causo
the improvements of all roads leading into
tbe avenue. I' would givo a now and i>et.
tor route for bringing all kinds of farm
produce, both into Washington and Alex
andria. The avenue would confer similar
benefits on Fairfax county. The beautiful
country through which the avenue would
pass from Alexandria to Mt. Vernon would
be dot led with handsome lesidonces on both
Hides of the avenuo, and a-- in Alexandria
county the value of property would be in
creased, roads leading to the avenuo would
be improved und the farmers would have a
first class method of reaching two good
markets with all tboir producn. Tho com
missioners of Alexandria and Fairfax coun?
ties should take immediate stops to open
this avenue. It is true the laws of Virginia
do not allow more than a width of sixty feet
condemned for road purposes, but there sure?
ly would lie no property owner cn tho route
so foolish as to refuse the additional forty feet
necessary to make one of the grandest drives
in the world, and if there were any such
they could soon be brought to terms by :i
special act of the legislature of Virginia.
The parties at interest in this matter are the
people of Washington, of the city and county
of Alexandria, and those of Fairfax county.
Will they not. all move at once to secure tho
commencement and completion of so mag?
nificent a work ? Of course the United States
will do its pnrt. it needs an avenue of
grand proportions leading to the main en?
trance of the boautiful cemetery whore 80
many thousands'of its brave defenders lie
