THE subscriber in Fredericksburg, has for sale extraordinary good old Maderia wine, of the New York quality, by the pipe, hogshead, or quarter cask.


Those Gentlemen who have been used to drink such wines, and can afford it, will doubtless think it prudent to lay in a good stock before the first of September, when the laudable associating prohibition is to take place. It has no other duty now to pay, but that of gratifying the palates of generous freemen, to gladden their hearts, and make them of a chearful countenance, until that period arrives when they are to be changed into sullen slaves; such a metamorphosis as will be insupportable to this once free and happy country.
