A FINE ESTATE
IN MARKET.
r|MlE subscriber wishes to sell tho Tract of
Land on which ho now resivles, situated iu
Augusta County, between the Long Meadow run
and Christian's Creek, l'ltis tract contains
&S3 AvvDSiSsSj)
about 200 ol which arc cleared and in a fine stale
of cultivation and the residue well timbered.
Ibis land possesses many advantages which
are calculated to attract tho attention of persons
desirous ol procuring a desirable residence or of
making a profitable investment of capital.—
It lies about mid-way between Staunton and
Waynesborongh and within a short distance of
the turnpike,.—It is within three miles ol" Tink
ling Spring Church, in an excellent neighbor
hood, and convenient to several Merehant^Mills
und Saw Mills—one of each nearly on the edge
f tho wood land.
llie improvements consist of a plain comforta
ble Dwelling-House, with all necessary out
houses, Spring-house, and Smoke-house, a large
and convenient Barn with a Granary attached to
it, and an excellent Orchard of choice fruit trees.
The greater part of the tract is undulating,
without being steep or broken, and about three
hundred acres of it are of the first quality of Au
gusta land.
There are two never-failing Springs near the
dwelling-house, and others on different parts of
the tract, which afford an ample supply of wa
ter. The Meadow is large and exceedingly pro
ductive. and not more than an acre of it is liable
to damage from freshets.
The location of the Springs and tho Wood
land is such as to make it easy to divide tho Tract
into two or three farms, giving to each an abun
dant supply of timber and water.
in point of fertility of soil, salubritv of cli
mate, advantages of society and convenience to
schools, to church, and to market, this estate is
surpassed by few if any in the county, and the
subscriber can confidently recommend it to anv
gentleman who wishes to obtain such a combina
tion of advantages for a fair consideration.
Any one desirous of purchasing is requested
to call and examine the land for himself, and lie
can then learn the terms of sale v\ Itich will be
accommodating. MOSES McCUE.

It cannot be applied to any Rheumatism without reliev

counterfeit it, but without success as the user soon finds
that he has got hold of a worthless article. Persons
confined for years to their bed, have in many instances
been entirely cured and able* to attend to their business
after using one or two bottles. Persons after trying
every other article, are obliged at last to resort to this
certain remedy, to he cured. Call for Comstock & Co’s

TRUSTEE'S SALE*
¥> Y virtue of a Deed of'Trust executed by Jon-'
athan and David W. Lamb to me as Trustee'
. for Jacob Lamb, bearing date the 6th day of July,*
1811, and of record in the County Court Office of
i Augusta, I shall proceed to sell, for ready money,,
to the highest bidder, on the premises, on SatuK
day the 2?ih day of December next, two certdirP
Tracts, or Parcels of Land, lying and being in the
County of Augusta, on the north branch of Naked;
Creek—one of which is the same tract whereon
the said Jacob Lamb now resides, and which he,
the said Jacob Lamb, purchased of the heirs of
tlie late John Dickey—adjoining the lands oF
Samuel M. Long, John Craun and others, and*
containing, by estimation, two hundred and four
acres; or so much tlipreof as shall be necessary ttr
raise the sum of $800, being the first instalrnerifc
of §8.000, secured by said deed, together with
! interest and tho costs attending the sale, li is
but scldor that such land as that hereby offered
1 to the public, is to be found in tho market, as iri
i point of durability and fertility of soil, together
with the advantages of spring and running water
. in great abundance, it is equalled by but very
little, if any other land in the county, except that
which immediately surrounds it. Naked Creek
runs through, it is believed, tho choicest lands of
Augusta county. Selling as'Trustee, 1 shall con
vey to the purchaser such title only as is vested
in me by the said deed, though the title is belicv-’
ed to be unquestionable.
