A WOHI) TO THOSE WHO AIIE FOND OF EASY IllOINO. The complaint against hard and uneasy saddles, which is, for the most part, a just and general one, and is really a grievance to those who have much riding to do, has caused 1dm to turn his mind particularly to that subject, with a view, if possible, to remedy the evil.— He can with confidence assure the public, that he has accomplished it. I he plan projected is by means of strong and well tempered steel springs, so constructed as to support the saddle scat, and give much greater ease to both rider and horse, than saddles made in the common way, or any other that be has ever seen can pos sibly do. The plan is entirely different from the En glish elastic saddles with spring bars of steel, whale bone, &c. and also from those with wire springs; and | he conceives much superior to either, as the elasticity is greater, and the tree not being put out of its original i form, will not be subject to hurting horses on journeys, \ which i5 complained of in the saddles with spring bars. « A number of gentlemen have those saddles now jn use, . ind but one sentiment exists among them in favor of | their superiority. The invention is equally as applica- , >le to ladies’saddles as to gentlemen’s. Any person ( lesirous of purchasing those easy saddles, is at liberty \ irsttomake trial of one and judge of their ease for ( hemselves. In point of durability they will be war- | •anted equal to anv other saddles and superior to most aug 7—tf ' JAMES VANSANT. A Bargain may be had in (he Establishment of tu Virginia Press.
