For sale, The seat and tract of land whereon I now live, in Essex County, two miles from the town of Tappahannock, known by the name of Mount Clement. It contains 315 acres, great part of which is fertile flat land, and about 30 acres thereof is good marsh, bounded by Hodkins' Creek. The buildings on this land are very valuable and consist of a large two story brick dwelling house, with genteel and necessary offices. The situation is agreeable, affording an extensive view of the adjacent town, river, and country. Independent of its advantages as a farm, this place is a desirable stand for a professional man, such as a physician or lawyer; insomuch as nothing but its remoteness from my other lands, and the occasion I have for money, could induce me to sell it. It may be purchased very cheap for cash, tobacco, public securities, or negroes, and if in cash or tobacco, credit may be had for part. Apply to me on the premises, or during the sitting of the Assembly in Richmond.

This land is intersected by a large, bold and never failing stream, called Catharpin's Run, and has several very fine springs, and is in every respect well watered. There is a body of this land consisting of 300 acres, which lays low and well adapted to meadow, it being well watered and of fertile black soil; the remainder of the tract is a high level land, equal in quality to any in the neighborhood, and well supplied with timber of all kinds, especially the pine tree, which hath grown to a prodigious size, and very straight; this conveniency renders it of eminent value to the carpenter; its situation and fertility makes it equally as much to the farmer, and it being situated on the public road to Orange (which is in general much travelled) will be the means of making it as great an acquaintance to the publican. I will take for the above land, cash, tobacco, wheat, interest warrants, or exchange it for lands in the neighborhood of this place.

The situation is remarkably healthy, and the water exceedingly good. Every necessary building requisite for a merchant or a planter, has been erected at a considerable expense; amongst which is a dwelling, malting house, and kiln, upon an extensive scale, capable with some small improvements, of employing a capital to great advantage in that branch of business. The proprietor being desirous to remove to the western country in the spring, will dispose of the above for 500 pounds, being little more than a third of the original cost and improvements. A small proportion to be paid in cash, the remainder in young negroes of an age fit for business, at their full value, and the possession will be given the first week of March next ensuing.

To be sold, a tract of land, in Caroline county, about 3 miles above the Mount Church, on the road to Mattapony, containing about 130 acres, more or less; about 60 acres of which is cleared, and under good fence. There is on this land a good dwelling house, 32 feet by 16, sundry out houses, and a good barn, 38 feet by 20, shaded; Also 600 large bearing peach trees and 50 apple trees, very thriving. The wood land is very lively and well timbered with small timber, and as good a spring within 150 yards of the house as ever run out of the earth.

Exchange of lands. I will exchange my farm in the county of Stafford, known by the name of Travelers Rest, for lands in any of the counties above the sails of the rivers, but would prefer the counties of Loudoun, Berkeley or Frederick. the farm contains about 1030 acres, (one third of which at least is in wood) lying on the river Rappahannock, about 5 miles below Fredericksburg, and is esteemed in soil inferior to very few, if any, on the river. There is a large brick dwelling house, 3 stories high, and every other convenient house; excellent springs, upwards of 100 acres of ground that would bring good timothy (about 10 of which is laid down) and about 40 acres now in red clover. This situation is as healthy as any on the river, and few any where on the water can be more so. The largest vessels that go to Fredericksburg can load up within a few yards of the landing: In short this seat is admired by all who have seen it, and nothing but a desire to make better provision for a numerous family, could induce me to part with it. ---Any person inclined to exchange, after viewing the premises, may come on treaty with the subscriber, who will also view their lands. An undoubted title will be given for mine, and the same expected from the other party.

For sale, A tract of land, lying in Culpeper county, on Crooked Run, about 10 miles from Culpeper court-house, about the same distance from Madison court-house, and about 12 miles from Orange court-house- containing 500 acres. On this land are a grist and saw mill; also, a new mill house, just raised, (about 40 or 50 yards from the mills) 50 feet long, 32 feet wide, four stories high; the first of good stone, three of wood, well framed and put together and covered with shingles out of the heart of pine. The mill house stands on a solid rock, the walls of the first floor being built from stone blown from the foundation whereon the house stands; the tail race is finished and the head race may be finished, with 6 or 7 hands, in 10 days; a new framed dwelling house, 30 feet long, 18 feet wide, two rooms, a good stone chimney, and a cellar well walled up with good stone, the whole size of the house, with two rooms, a new meat house double studded and finished in the best manner, a log'd kitchen with two rooms. About 600 yards from the mill stands a distillery, just finished, 40 feet long, 20 odd feet wide, with three fine new stills, fixed up in the best manner and room for a boiler. One half of the house length ways, has a plank floor for the tubbs, &c. to stand on. The water is conveyed from two excellent springs within 20 steps of the house, which is shaded through out the day, as it stands in very thick woods of large heavy timber, there not being a quarter of an acre of cleared land within 500 yards of the dwelling, which may be worked to great advantage every month of the year, for the water in the house is equally as cool as the water when it comes out of the springs. There is not more than 30 or 40 acres of cleared land on the whole tract; a great part of this land is heavily timbered with red oak, white oak, hickory, and pine, with some locust, and would produce fine tobacco, being very rich, but is broken and stony in some places. There is also a very good stone quarry on this land. I can with confidence recommend the mill seat and distillery here as being equal to any in the county, with a sufficiency of water throughout the year. There is no other mill within 4 or 5 miles. The present grist mill gets upwards of 500 bushels of Indian corn toll, per year. The saw mill might also be carried on to great advantage. There are also two small settlements on the land that might be leased out on good terms. I am disposed to give a great bargain. My price is 16,001. (more than one half the sum has lately been expended on the new mill, dwelling house, and distillery) 6,001 in hand, and three equal annual payments for the balance, with interest from the date. If the above property is not disposed of in two months, I will rent it for 2, 3, 4, or 5 years. I wish to sell 12,000 acres of military lands, about one half in the Greenriver county, state of Kentucky, and the rest in the north westside of the Ohio. I will receive lands in Virginia, slaves or good bonds, in payment; or I will give 3, 4, and 5 years credit for the principal on receiving interest annually. The taxes on the above land are all paid.

Haphazard Mills and Farm for sale, The subscriber offers for sale his mills & farm in the county of Madison, distant about 50 miles from Fredericksburg, and 75 from Richmond. The manufacturing mill is 60 by 32 feet, two stories, the lower built of stone of the best manner, and stands on solid rock. -She runs two pair of burr stones, 4 foot 4 inches diameter, and is geered and fitted with Evan's elevating machinery, in the best manner. There is also on the opposite side of the dam, a geered grist mill for the purpose of grinding corn. These mills are nearly new, and in good order. There is annexed to them, a store-house, with 5 rooms on the lower floor, and two above, which will serve to accommodate a family as well as the purpose of retailing goods. There is also a good kitchen, meat-house and garden, annexed to this house. There is also a well finished frame house for a miller and family, two rooms on a floor, with a stone chimney and two fire places, garden, &c. Also a house nearly the same as the miller's, with garden, &c. which is tenanted out for this year, and a blacksmith's shop. -Those mills are built on a good active stream, and seldom want water; they have manufactured 4000 barrels of flour in this year, and ground the neighboring custom. They are situated in a rich farming neighborhood, where for the last 5 years a supply of wheat might have been had to have employed three active mills. It is also one of the best situations for retailing goods, in my opinion, in the state, as I have no doubt but from 6 to 10,0001. value might be vented in the year to great advantage. The farm consists of about 650 acres of land, 450 acres of which is cleared a and under good fencing, 300 high and 150 rich low ground; upon the river Rapidan, every acre of the latter quantity well adapted to the growth of timothy, and a great part of it will produce good tobacco; the 300 acres highland, after taking from it a few paddocks, is laid off in four fields, nearly of equal size, two of which is now in wheat, and perhaps looks equal to any in the state. The whole of the highland fields is well adapted to the growth of small grain and Indian corn, a great proportion of them fresh, and not 5 acres in the whole worn out or much galded. The improvements on the farm are a new dwelling house, with 4 rooms and a passage on the lower floor, and 4 above, with good cellars the whole length and width of the house; kitchen, meathouse, spring house, stables, and carriage house, barn and tobacco houses, overseer's house and negro quarters, and an unfinished falling garden, with several springs of good water near the house. -This property is situated in a healthy country, and commands a good prospect of the Blue Ridge and southwest mountains, as well as several neighboring farms. -There is also a distillery of 6 stills, and a copper boiler; the capacity of the stills are 713 gallons. and the boiler 220- the house is 60 by 24 feet, exclusive of a shed 12 by 60 feet, where the stills are fixed, with beer stands, &c. sufficient for the business. This property will be sold all together or the mills, with their appendages, and a few acres of land, if first sold, may be separated from the farm. -Any persons inclinable to purchase may know the terms by applying to Mr. Robert Patton or Mr. Wm. S. Stone, of Fredericksburg, or to the subscriber on the premises.

To those who are acquainted with the above Land, I deem it unnecessary to expansiate on its advantages; to others who are strangers to it I think I may with confidence say, that in point fertility of soil conveniency of situation, and the general estimation of those who know, it stands second to very few Tracts, if any , in the state. It lies on the Rappahannock river, about three miles from the town of Port Royal, and twenty-four from Fredericksburg, and has annexed to it, one of the best shad and herring Fisheries on the river. On an eminence which commands a beautiful distant prospect, and an entire view of the low grounds belonging to this Tract, I have lately erected a two story dwelling house, and some necessary out houses, the former containing seven rooms and a passage, under which there are excellent cellars, a Well of good water, an eighteen feet cube Ice house, and a thriving young bearing Peach Orchard, of 1000 trees.

The Tavern is that which was formerly kept by Mr. Hackney, now kept by Mr. Spencer; the dwelling House, the outhouse and Enclosures, are such as must please the purchaser. The advantages of health, profit, and good Neighborhood, may here be had with great certainty, and the Purchaser will have an excellent opportunity of being retired himself, old though he may keep both the store and tavern. It is expected those who wish to purchase will view the Premises. Application may be made either to Charles Muse, or Alex'r Parker.

LAND FOR SALE. I Wish to sell the land on which I live, lying on the great road to the upper country from Falmouth, from which they are distant only eight miles. There are 903 acres, the whole of which were in woods eleven years ago, except about 100 acres, which lies chiefly about the House, and are for the most part covered in cedar. There are about 80 acres in meadow land in one body on the horse pen run, of which 50 have been made into meadow from the woods by myself, without the land being at all exhausted, and are equal to any meadow land I know. 15 acres are still to clear, and 5 in old field- this body of meadow land may be greatly enlarged by means of Spring branches which run into it. 300 acres of the other land are enclosed and will be completely cleared by another winter's work- this may be relied on for three barrels of corn to the acre, in any season not worse than those I have experienced. In this part of the land another meadow of 40 acres may be on good low grounds and watered hill sides, which were cleared last winter, and will be in the best condition to seed next fall. About 430 acres will remain in woods after the meadow and upland plantations are compleated, and of this a considerable part is as good as any of the tract. The improvements are a well built two story Dwelling House (framed) with seven good rooms, a very large passage, and a sufficient number of closets; all necessary out houses, including an ice House, a large Barn, an Overseers House framed, an excellent Corn House, and a very convenient overshot Mill, which have all been built within ten years, and cost at least 1,500, a good garden, 400 very flourishing apple trees in full bearing; and a great number of fruit trees of other kinds. I would divide this property so as to make a lot of 300 acres including the house, barn, mill, orchard' 80 acres of meadow land and 50 acres of woodland, which would be a very desirable property for any person who does not wish to engage in the management of many Negroes; any number of hands can be procured in the neighborhood for harvest. The meadow seeded will certainly yield 10 per cent on what I should ask for this lot, and the like profit may be expected from the meadow alone when the 80 acres shall have been seeded. No place in this country is more remarkable for its healthiness, for the production of fruit trees, or the certainty of their bearing.

Poplar, Chestnut, and other valuable timber; the soil is well adapted to the culture of Indian corn, Wheat, Cotton, or Tobacco; the creek above mentioned is navigable for vessels of 2000 bushels burden, to the large bridge, a little above the said bridge the creek branches, the eastern branch of it is a natural boundary for the said land for 114 miles, the northern branch for 214 miles, each are navigable for row boats of ten or twelve barrels burden, and abound in good fish and wild fowl of various sorts in their season; on the margins of said creeks and belonging to said tract, are considerable grazing marshes, consisting of wild oats and other valuable native grasses affording a quantity of fine Hay, and an inexhaustible fund of the best manure; on said land are several large swamps which may be easily converted into meadow and at a small expense; about eight miles below are excellent Oysters, and in great abundance which are obtained with very little trouble, the improvements on this tract, are a large convenient two story, framed Dwelling 72 by 28 feet, 5 rooms on each floor, and several convenient closets with excellent dry cellars, the whole length and width of the house; a framed kitchen 20 feet square with a brick chimney, and under pining of bricks; a framed laundry, 20 by 16 feet, chimney and underpinning of bricks; servants and overseers houses - of the same size, and finished as the laundry; a framed dairy, Smoke house, Poultry house and several other small houses, which serve as lumber houses.- A productive garden and fruit trees, of various and excellent fruits and thriving young apple Orchard of the most approved kinds; a framed Barn 54 by 24 feet covered with short shingles and underpinning with brick; a framed Stable 40 by 20 feet; a framed Granary, 32 by 18 feet; all of the said Houses have been built within the last ten years, and are in excellent repair. On the north branch of the said creek, and less than of a mile from tide-water, is a grist and saw mill, on a constant and never failing stream; the grist mill which is on the tub construction, works two pairs of stones, and a bolting chest; she is worth nearly two hundred barrels of toll corn, & a hundred bushels of wheat annually; these mills are situated in a plentiful Wheat and Corn country, and in one abounding with valuable timber; and if they were in the possession of a person of moderate capital, there is not a doubt that they might, and would at small expense, be made extremely valuable property; a few hundred dollars laid out in opening a Canal of tolerable size, from the tide water to the mill, which is very practicable, and may be done with great facility, would make this mill seat, one of the most valuable on the Rappahannock on account of its contiguity to the best markets, either for flour, meal, or lumber, to wit; Norfolk and Baltimore, being only two days run to the former, and four days sail to the latter.
Another Tract, In Richmond county, known by the name of RICH-NECK, Containing by survey 1639 acres, about 5 miles distant to the former. This land is very well timbered, and watered, has on it a very large and valuable swamp, which is heavily timbered, and might be made meadow of the first description.- The soil of this tract is remarkably fertile and favorable to the culture of Indian corn, Wheat and Cotton and is as healthy a situation as any in the lower part of the state. The improvements on this tract, are such as are usual on a farm; to wit, a good framed Barn, Granary, Overseer's house, Corn houses, stables, &c. with large and thriving young apple and peach Orchards, of good fruits for the purposes of Distilling.
Another Small Tract, In Richmond county, containing by a very old deed, 80 acres, more or less, well watered and timbered, with a thriving apple orchard of good fruit; in other respects unimproved. The soil of this tract, is well adapted to the growth of Indian corn, Wheat, and Cotton. This tract is a small distance from the last mentioned one, only separated by swamp, and is at present cultivated with it.
Another Tract, In Westmoreland county, about a half mile distant from Rich-Neck, separated from it by a swamp, and contains by an old survey 975 acres. The soil on this Tract is well suited to the growth of Indian corn, Wheat, Tobacco and Cotton; at present occupied by tenants at will. A farther description of those Tracts of Land, is thought unnecessary, as it is presumed any person inclined to purchase or exchange, for said lands would first view them. In my absence my Overseer's, Mr. John Hughes, and Robert Clarke, who live on the plantation will ride over them with any person that is disposed to barter for or purchase either or the whole of the said above described tracts of land. I will either sell, or exchange one of the said tracts separately, or the whole of them together; if sold, one fourth of the purchase money to be paid down, the other three fourth, to be paid by three installments, of 12 months, 18 months, and two years, the purchaser giving bond with approved security of the payments, the bonds to carry interest from the date if not punctually paid, as they become due. An indisputable title will be made to the purchaser on his complying with the terms above mentioned, and possession given after the crops are secured, which may be growing at the time the bargain shall be concluded.
