The undersigned would respectfully announce to the citizens of Alexandria and vicinity, that, having introduced their improved STEAM FEATHER RENOVATOR into this place, they are now prepared to cleanse and renovate feathers in the most effectual man ner. By a pressure of steam, and the way it is applied, together with the facilities for ventilat ing and drying which we have invented, we claim more effectually, and in less time, to ren ovate feathers than by any process ever offered to the public. Our process not only cleanses old feathers from all impurities, relieving their matted condition, thereby increasing their bulk nearly one half, rraking them light and lively, clean and healthy, but aiso removes the disa greeable odor so common to new feathers, and destroys all moths and the liability thereto. J&r-For further particulars and prices see bills which will soon be in circulation. Satisfaction will be guaranteed, or no charge will be made. Parties desirous of examining the process are respectfully invited to call at our place of busi ness, NO. 66 KING STREliT, between the hours of 9 and 12 a. m , where the patentee or his agent will be found, who will take pleasure in snowing how the work is done. Send in your orders and come and see the process yourselves. Parties wishing to engage in a safo and profit able business will find it for their interest to call and examine. J. T. SHELDON, Patentee.

More than three quarters of a century ago it grew into life a cre ation of wants and needs of the people of this section of Virginia. During all this period its prominent object has been to advance the interests of the people of whose life it is the daily chronicle. Its fortunes have been their fortunes; it has shared their prosperity and suffered in their disasters. lis inspiration has been the deeire to forward the bc-Bt interests of the community in which it is located, and its own prosperity is, as it has been purposely made, inseparable from thai of the community it aims to represent. When they grow rich it hopes for a reward commensurate with its labors. While they are poor it expects to wo*k with thc-m and for them, expecting makeiheir success tho measure of its own. The past of the Gazette is offered as an index of its future. It has never fail el to avail itself promptly of all the improvements which coma with tho greater growth and more extended ex perience of journalism. Every year NEW FEATURES will bo added.

As the interests of the people mainly cortroa: homo, no pains will be spared to chronicle all matters occurring in the city and neighborhood, carefully excluding unseemly expressions or gross narrative as unlit for a journal that ii treasured at many thousand hearthstones of Virginia. Espocial attention will bo devoted to pranc ing, as well ;rom original sources of inforir ation as from its exchanges, the news of Virginia, es pecially such as relate to the development of tho resources of tho :5tate. Its contiguity to Washington give.-the Ga zette an early precedence over ail tho journals of the Stale in intelligence of the operations of the General Government, now ol' such vital im portance to the people of the South.
