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.

Alexa. Gazette.
THE ALEXANDRIA GAZETTE AND
VIRGINIA ADVERTISER will soon ce!e
brute its centennial year. 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.
THE GAZETTE MEANS TO BE THE
NEWSPAPER OF VIRGINIA. It will fur
nish daily a complete account, with superfluities
only lopped away, of al! the current news of tho
world.
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. The pro
ceedings of Congress, seldom so inter-'stir s' ??
uow, will be roguinrly reported in succinctiorm
for its columns, but all matters of especial inter
est in Virginia will bo given in detail, anJ th?
full text of all billsof local interest wili bo given.
From the State Capital it will receive <*arl
and accurate* accounts of the proceedings of tii
General Assembly and of all the operations i
the State government likely to interest tne |?oo
pie.
In its Commercial columns the especial fea
ture will be promptness and accuracy. The
farmers, drovers and commercial people of tl."
'State know they MAY DEPEND upon the
Gazette.
Early and reliable reportsof the Grain, Cittle,
Grocery and other Markets will be furnished,
and the prices and position of the stocks, which
are the subjects of business transactions in this
section of the country, carefully quoted.
| The continual favors of those who have once
I used the Gazette as an advertising medium is ?
warrant for saying that it pays to advertise in it*
columns. Never before did it pay so well to teh
the public what is for sale.
