1,<i\TN??ST?jN, VA.. October S.-Colonel
James Hubbard, of this county, has a
most interesting relic of an te-revolution?
ary Journalism in the shape of a copy of
thi Virginia Gazette, published ax WT1
llamsburg. The paper Is ?late?! Thursday,
March 3. 1768. and was published. 1 am
Informed, under the sanction of the colo?
nial authorities. It is in mourn hi g for
the death of Hon. Francis Fauquler. Uru
? .?- ????, "nor, and Commander, and
?'hi???' of the Dominion, aad contained a
lengthy obituary notice of that perauisage.
? y Is well preserved, showing little
tnlicaUon of Its venerable age. Another
interesting feature of the old Journal t?
Ute fre.tuency and length of tbe Latta
quotations which occur in almost every
paragraph. Lengthy excepta from Latin
authors bearing on the questsvns at issue
are ?? -usfunt. in?ilcating a fairUllarity on
the part ef the editor and itibataaaer?
with the dead Isaafsiiige? tha* ahowa the
