Attached to the Hotel is a large Garden, well slocked with vegetables, and in connection with the same, may be enumerated a thriving Orchard, comprising more thaii eleven hundred selected fruit trees ; a full crop of Wheal, Rye and Oats already secured, ham and stal.le lofts crowded with the best kind of thoroughly cured Lay, 20 or more stacks remaining on the meadows; also a prom ising Corn crop (including what will be due for icnt)e. pected to reach three hundred barrels, nil of which, wilh a goodly supply of Irish and Sweet potatoes, ie., will if desired be disposed of at the lowest market rates to whoever may become the purchaser of the Estate. The undersigned, moreover, would seed a croi of small grain for the coming year, provided it should be iliewb of the party purchasing the property The Norlh-Eastern part of the Estate extendi to within a short distance of the Southern lia.c of the Sau raton Mountains, affording one of the best Muuntuin Ranges for Cattle, and the finest Pasturage for Sfocp, where, in consequence of the proverbial mildness of cli mate, thousands of those valuable animals miglit lie ad vantageously pastured throughout the entire year, with out the expense of dry feeding or artificial shelter. For the infomation of persons at a distance unacquain ted with the characteristic healthfulncss of this immedi ate vicinity it may be stated that the property in ques tion is situated as before named on the Hollow Koad, 19 miles North west of the Moravian Town of Salini, Forsyth county 22 miles South-east of Mount Airy.Sur ry county, at the Eastern base of the Blue Kidgr miles South of the Court House in Patrick county, Va. 5 miles East of the far-famed Pilot Mountain Mow: Ararat and 3 miles South of the chain of the Sauri. ton Mountains, which, with Mount Ararat or alias the Pilot, are in full view from the Hotel.
