This farm contains from 4UUto 500 Acres of rolling land of the best quality. The soil is a mix ture of clay and sand, with a substratum of marie, which by deep ploughing may be kept in a constant course of improvement. It is situated in King George coun ty, Virginia, in the centre of a wealthy and popu lous neighborhood, (called Chotank.) The build ings are commodious, the dwelling house not of the modern fashion,—but comfortable and sufficiently large to accommodate any family. The stables and granery have been built but a few years, and are upon the most improved plan. The situation is handsome and elevated, three-fourths of a mile from the Potomac river, of which it commands a beautiful &. extensive prospect. On tips estate there are more never-failing springs, yielding the purest water, than I have ever seen on the same number of acres. Timber, of the ^v^tVJ^kiud common to such a soil, is abundant, wfjtejT viz. <$* White Oak. Hickory, Walnut, <jjjmc the second growth is locust and cedar. It lies suffici- | ently remote from creeks and marshes to ensure health to its possessor, and yet near enough to secure the phvsiciaiPsemploymcnt in his profession. The terms will be very accommodating. Persons disposed to purchase will address their letters to Hampstead, Va. nov 17—coStlawtf GEO. FITZHUGH.

This valuable Estate, containing 1500 Acres of Land, is situated in Charles county, near the line which i . divides it from Prince George. The site upon which the Mansion House and other buildings are erected, is high and healthful, and com mands a fine view of the surrounding country. A great proportion of this tract of land is fertile bottom, lying in full view of the dwelling, part of which is heavily timbered. The greater pail of the upland is in rail timber; the arable part of a friable soil and very produc tive.

It is distant from navi gable water but three miles; from Washington twenty four, and from Alexandria sixteen; it lies equidistant from Piscataway and Port I obacco, but eight miles from either place; and thus from its location, advanta ges from either market is easily derived.
