The last olTVr of Valuable Stock Farm.
THK subscriber, having twice heretofore ottered for mile
liis plantation, (iltnlhorn, (under unfavorable circumstances,
however,) without elieeling ii sale, or even attractn>K
many buyers, now oilers it for the last time. And, a*
advertisements seenl to lie considered extravagant, or to be I
disregarded altogether, he hereby gives a public assurance
that the representations about to be made shall be strictly
true, while ho respectfully invites purchasers to examine
the property for their own suiislhction.
This place, then, is situated on the sou^h fork ot Rockfis)i
river, in Nelson county, State of Virginia, twenty-three
miles from Howardsville, (which Is ninety miles above
Richmond, on the James River Canal,) to which point,
from this region, a well-graded turnpike road is now in
progiess of construction, whereby an easy and cheap trans
poriaiion will bo insured to an excellent itiRrket. The
tract contains about 1,25(1 acres, of which 230 are superior
low grounds, with much meadow land, a largo portion of it
being so situated and supplied with water that it might be
readily and thoroughly irrigated. About 000 seres of the
highland is of excellent quality, anil lies favorably for cultivation,
half of it being already cleared and substantially
enclosed, and, where not in corn, being well set in clover,
timothy, orchard grass, and herds grass, all of which grow
luxuriantly on every part of the land.
This place is remarkably well timbered, having an ample
supply of oak, hickory, and poplar for fuel and other pur |
poses, and an inexhaustible slock of chestnut and locust,
which furnish the most durable material tor fencing. It is
also unusually well Watered, there huing upon it numerous
springs of the linest water, and at least one nonMuntly running
stream in every held. Whilst the place produces tobacco
to great perfection, it is admirably well suited to the
stock business. When we consider us large amount ot
meadow land, its great general productiveness in the various
grains mid grasses, as well as its abundant supply of pure
water, we are justified in regarding it one of the best stock
farms in the State, whether lor cattle, sheep, or bogs ; lor,
besides the advantages presented by the cultivated lauds,
there is an extensive range which affords grass for cattle or
sheep, and mast lor hogs, sufficient to sustain tlietn for
severul months in die yeur.
The improvements are decidedly good. There is a spaeiott
and handsome brick dwelling, occupying a romantic site '
nuil lavored Willi scenery peculiarly varied ana Ueuumul
The yard and adjacent grounds are thickly set with lorer
trees and ornumentul trees and shrubbery, and at u prope,
distance are orchards of choice fruit, which, rarely, it ever,
fail to bear. The other buildings are such as are u.stiiiUy
Ibund on a well-improved place, and are of a neat and substantial
character. The situation is us healthy as any in
Virginia, and to the neighboring society belong morulity,
intelligence, wealth, and refinement.
If a sale be not effected belbre Wednesday, the 29th day
of September next, the property will be ottered at that
time, or on the lirst lair day thereafter, on the premises, to
the highest bidder. Immediate |>osse-sion will be given
for seeding; and, as upwards of 150 acres of the land is
now in corn and tobacco, tlmt cpiautity will be ready for
seeding tins tall without the labor of preparation.
There will be a good supply of corn, lodder, hay, straw,
ite. on the place ; which may ho had on reasonable terms.
One-lonrth of the purchase money will he required in
hand, and the balance in three equal annual instalments;
the purchaser giving bonds, with approved security, for the
deterred payments.
The subscriber, who will generally be at home, or Mr.
C. T. Estes, of Nelson court-house, will at any time show
the lands to any one wishing to see them ; and as he, the
subscriber, is anxious to sell out and remove to lite south,
lie is prejiared to propose terms which must bo consideiod
liberal.
A perfect title will be conveyed.
Address JOS. F. MONTGOMERY,
Aug 30?ts Mount lloreb, Nelson county, Va.
(jy - Circumstances having been such that tt was
not deemed advisable to oiler my place to the highest bidder

he subject to private sale until Wednesday the 3d
Jay of November next, when, if not sold before, it will
poiitively be offered u? proposed in the foregoing advertisement,
if there should be even two reliable bidders present.
In the mean while it will be neatly seeded with wheat, of
the host quality, and In good time ; the purchaser paying for

An extraordinary piece of copper, which is one block,
weighing nearly two tone, has been brought to Liverpool
from Pittsburg, in Pennsylvania. It is a most curious

nine hundred men were employed in the works, all of
whom, with their families, are now without resources.
Mr. Cobden at Moscow.?The celebrated Cobden is
still among us. He came from Nishni Novgorod, where
he had been attending the fair. The immense variety ot
articles which were exposed for sale, and the admirable
order which prevailed at the exchange of goods, have
quite exceeded his expectations. On the road to Nishni
Novgorod Mr. Cobden visited several manufacturing districts,
and here it was that the industry of our peasantry astonished
him. Here we have manufacturers in full perfection,"
he exclaimed at Wochna, where it was well
known that silk goods to the value of several hundred
thousand rubles are annually manufactured. At Moscow
also several manufactories nave excited his*astonishment
and admiration. Mr. Cobden assured M. Gutsekkon, the
proprietor of a calico printing mill, that he had nowhere
seen so completely organized a manufactory of this kind.
He highly complimented Mr. Procherou, another manufacturer,
for the care whih hecbestowed upon the children
in his mills. In the cloth factory of M. Koton he was especially
pleased with the der which prevailed there,
and the admirable combinations of the isolated divisions
of the manufactory. Mr. Cobden said, " You need not
be afraid of any competition, cloth weaving is in the most
favorable state in Russia, and all circumstances combine
to bring this branch of industry to the highest jierfection."
He expressed his satisfaction, and his desire to become
better acquainted with the state of the manufactures and
of the laboring closes.
The cholera.?We regret to announce that this dreadful
scourge is again making its appearance in different
parts of Europe and Asia. Its approach is creating alarm
with thnsn wlm hnvs watched its nrnirress from the nlains
of Scinde towards western Europe. About eighteen
months since it ravaged the banks of the Indus with
frightful severity, inflicting serious loss upon the Britisli
troops at Kurracnee and Hyderabad. About the same time
it raged in Afghanistan ; spread from thence into Persia,
which it traversed from east to west, spreading to
the northward into Tartary, and southwardly into Turkish
Kurdistan, and the jiachalic of Bagdad. Early in the
present year it made its appearance to the west of the
Caucasian mountains, and committed great ravages in the
Russian army acting against the Circassians; and we
just now learn of its reappearance in Europe, having
broken out at Taganrog, Marianopolis, and other ports
on the westerly shores of the sea of Azof, Kief, Smolensk,
Riga, Tifflis, Kara, Kontais, and Trebizond. Great
alarm is felt at Warsaw, where the authorities were preparing
hospitals. On board the Peninsula and*Oriental
Company's steamer Sultan, Captain Brooks, on her late
voyage from Trebizond to Constantinople, several cases
hau broken out; in consequence of which, she had been
ordered by the health authorities at the Inttet port to
Prince's island to ride out hes quarantine of ten days.
The Tiger will therefore be despatched to MalUi in her
stead, to carry home the India (bulky) mails and passengers.
As in its former progress towards Europe, in the
years 1830 and 1?31, the general course of the pestilence
has been nearly due northwest; and it seems, so far, to
have travelled at about the same rate as on that occasion.
In is.11, it made its appearance on the shores of the Baltic
(at Riga, Lfantzic, and Memel) in the month of May,
at V ienna and Berlin in August, at Hamburg in October,
and reached England in the beginning of November. We
regret to state that the accounts from Berlin and Frank*
foit announce the rapid approach of the chojeru to Poland.

Marshal Soult, after a service of 63 years, has at
length retired from the presidency of the council m
France, and M. Guizot has been officially appointed in
his stead. The King, in acknowledgment ot the services
of the veteran soldier, lias raised ?im to the rank of
marshal-general of France, a dignity formerly held by thn
celebrated Marshal de Turenneana the Marshal de VUlars.
The retirement of Marshal-General Soult from
the scene of politics will not occasion the smallest change
in the councils of France. M. Guizot has been viituai- ,
ly, for several years past, the principal minister of tins
crown; but I^otiis Philippe, under any change of ministry,
incessantly governs as well as reigjis. His will, his
ambition, his family interests, influence the destinies of
one of the mightiest empires of Europe. At this moment
Italy, Spain, and Greece are in a state of the most violent
political excitement, brought about bythc intrigues of
Louis Philippe. In order to comjiass his schemes in
Spain, he has clearly tampered with Austria, and en
r*. irn.l k?r u,w.r.,o-k I.ol., ... 1
acquiescence into his views with Suain. The result has I
been, that in Sicily, Naples, throughout the I'apal States, ;1
Tuscany, Modena, anil Lucca, the people have flown to 11
arms, and demanded the institution of a civic and consti- I
tutioiml force, to i>rotect life and property. Austria has I
been checked in her advances. The accounts which I
reach us are so varied and conflicting that it is almost im- I
possible to glean the truth; enough can be seen, how- J
ever, to assure us that the cause of the people has been 'ij
almost everywhere triumphant; and although France is "1
not quite so active in the cause of Italian liberty under 33
M. Guizot as she was under M. Casimir Perrier, still the .:!j
tide of events is too strong for any French minister to '
stem, and his only alternative is to discover the readiest
excuse to join the cause of progress, and preserve his in- . ft
lluence by following the stream of public opinion in Fatrope.
Such, we trust, will be the upshot of all the present
warlike demonstrations in Italy. Greece, having \
lost M. Coletti, who on his deathbed avowed himself the 1
especial friend and instrument of M. Guizot, will doubt- j
less again become the scene of commotion. It is said ]
that the whole line of the frontiers, from Volo to Arto,
is one series of insurrections. The Turks have begun to
make reprisals, and everything is in confusion. King ' a
Otho, pressed by M. Piscatory, the French minister, was
about to appoint Riga Palamedes, the avowed enemy of
Kngland, as the successor of M. Coletti; but wiser councils
prevailed, and General Kitz.o, minister of war, has.
we nave just learned, been nominated to the presidency of
the council of Greece.
Spain. *
A fresh ministerial crisis is threatened in Spain. It is J
said that French agents are actively engaged in foment- $
tug intrigues in Madrid ; and the exasperation shown by s,
tlie journals devoted to Narvaez indicates but too plainly
that important results must follow. The vacillation of |
the Spanish ministers had proceeded to such an extent $
that measures had been taken to prevent Espartero's re- |
turn to Spain. The Heraldo asserts that orders had been
sent to the frontier to prevent his entering the country, *
which appears to bean exaggeration; but it seems that ?
he has been advised not to return. 1
The last accounts state that General Serrano, having J?
quarrelled with M. Salamanca, had passed over to the |U
party of the Queen-mother and of Narvaes, and that 11
through his influence the latter would immediately be |||
empowered to reconstruct the cabinet according to his f|l
own will. Another rumor had it that Narvaez and M. *9
Salamanca were on the best footing, having met at din- 1
ner at the house of M. Buchenthal, and that Narvaez 5?
appeared at the opera in the course of the evening in the 3
box of M. Salamanca. 9
The Gazette publishes a royal decree, appropriating the i
revenues of all the national property of the mines of 1
Almaden and others in the kingdom, and the surplus of M
the colonial receipts, to the payment of the interest of the 91
domestic and foreign debt, three per cents, conformable 9|
to the 51st article of the organic royal decree of the 11th M
June last. The directing junta of the public debt was to |
negotiate a contract with the Bank of San Fernando, in J
virtue of which that bank will undertake, during ten "
years, to place at the disposal of the administration of w
the public debt on the 30th of June and 31st of December I
of each year, the amount of interest due agreeably to the
budget approved by the Cortes.
The attempts made by the Moderados to seduce the
troops in garrison in Navarre have hecome| 6o bold and
open, that the captain-general has found it necessary to
make a formal report on the subject of the government, i
but nothing has been done to puiush the authors of these
