THIS CEMETERY is laid out on the plan of the celebrated Greenwood. of New York, and situated on the high ground distant one and a quarter miles north of the Capitol?North Capitol street leading^irectly to the gateway. This Complhv have secured a charter from Con gress, appropriating their ground forever to burial purposes, making a fee title to the purchaser, and prohibiting all encroachments from legislation or otherwise, which is of vri?t importance to those who wish their dead to repoee where thev have placed them, for it has become a c.istom in all other cltie? when the burial ground becomes valu able for other purposes, to sell it, and thrc.w the dead promiscously into one large pit, and legal measures cannot prevent it, as no titles are given to the ground. N. B?Office open from 10 to 12 o'clock a. m., where Pamphlets, containing the Charter, By Laws, and a map of the ground, and all other in formation, can b? obtained. All orders left with Mr. James F. Harvey. No. 410Seventb street, or any other undertaker, will be promptly attended to. je 19?ly THE FAUQUIER WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS ARE now open for the reception of Company, and in a far more attractive conditiou than they ever have been. A gross misrepresentation against them having been published in the Petersburg Intelli gencer and Baltimore Sun to the effect that they were closed for the season is now traced to an ir responsible source unworthy of notice. It is proper to state that there is no shadow of foundation for it. The subscriber trusts that he will not be made the victim of such malignity; and the respectable journals which have given currency to the rumor by transferring it to their columns will disabuse the public mind through the samemedium.
