A very valuable Merchant Mill,
QUARRIES to -be let
I will rent my merchant Mill at the little Falls of Po
towmac, for any term not less than seven, nor more than
elcTen years, from the firft' day of September next. The
mili-houfe is 42 by 40 feet, three flories high, built with
stone, and has in it three pairs of French Burr Stonesi two
oVcr'lhot 18 water-wheels, and Evans's machinery
complete, with every other thing proper and necessary for
carrying on the business with difnatch, and at as little ex
pense as poffi'ok, all in good order—Frem the mill to my 1
landing on the Potomac river, (whs re craft, of any bur
then may deliver grain and take in flour) it is about 4c '
yards, and from thenc-- by water to George-Town and '
the City of Wafnington, about 3 miles, t and to Alexan- '
dria about nmiles. This situation, aided by a fuflicient 1
capital,' will command the produce of a very extensive '
back country, where large quantities'of whearand other '
grain is annually'made, the diAance to it being from 8 ■
to 10 miles leL than to any market town upun the navi- '
gation of the Potown ac. There are 011 the preruifes a '
large stone Coopers* Ih jp, a ftone'granary, and acommo- 1
dioui miller's house. At the landing aforefaid a bridge , i
is now building over the Potomac, which is in great for- j '
wardnels and probably will be finilhed the ensuing fail. I 1
There are also on the premises, a Brewery md DilUlle- j '
ry.' built with itone, in them are three stills, two coppers
or boilers, with every necessary article, all new, and in 1
good ordsr, and fufftcicntly large to carry on the Brew- '
ery and Diftillei y upon a very extenlive plan. This prop- '
erty I vl'ill rent for the fame term of years. *
Upon my lauds, achoining the premises, and along the '
banks of the river, where craft may lead with cafeand dif- 1
patch, is an immense quantity of building and fou'nda
tion-ftones. Four quarries are now Open, and ,as *liany 1 '
more may be opehed with ease : the stone taken from these 1
quarries is better, and has the preference ■at this market , !
II an/"ether stone brought to it. I will rent t,hefe-quarries i
separately or together as may bell suit.
On the top of the hill, and about 200 yards from the j
; mill, is a stone Dwelling-house, large enough for rhe ac- '
commodation of a family ; also, a kitchen, dairy, (moke- M
house, &c. and a garden, enc»ofed and ip cuttivancfa, the
foi of. whieh is equal in goodness to any in this Hate, i
will also rent this property.
Adjoining to the Brewery and Diftiilery is a Smith's
ill op, in which is a complste set of Blacksmith's tools,
which 1 will also tent, and if agrgeabie 1 will hire to the I
tenant two negro blacki'miths, onc.of them is a complete j
If I rent out the Hons quarries, 1 wiil fell three crafts,
which were built for the purpose of carrying ftnsJe : they
will altogether bring upwards of 90 perch. Immediate

The Group ;
Embellilhed with a beautiful head of
THE publisher t'ninlis it a mark of refpeftj due to a
liberal and'enljghtened public, to inform them that
this is the Poem for the publishing of which he hat been
twice dragged from his house, and is now laboring under
a vexatious 'prosecution. He is conscious that the piece
contains nothing either criminal or offenfive, unl?fs ori
ginal wit v decorated in elegant language, be criminal or
dlfgufting to the prevalent tafie ; and, as he trusts that
neither of these is the cafe, he submits the work to the
public with a full affuraijcc of its meeting with a favora
ble reception.
He would beg his prosecutors to call to mind (if they
have ever read it) the following apologue to a w«ll known
romanre—" A young painter, indulging a vein of plea
lantry, iketched a kind of Conversation Piece, refpeiting a*
bear, fin owl, a monkey, and an ass; and to render it
inoVe striking, humourous, and moral, dillinguifhed eve
ry figure by some emblem of human life. Bruin was
exhibited in the garb and attitude of a'n old, toothless,.
drunken soldier; the owl perched upon the handle of a
coffee-pot, with fpedtacles 011 his nose, feelned to contem
plate i newspaper ; and tha ass ornamented with a huge
tye-wig (which, howeyer, could not conceal his long
ears) fat for his piiluTe to the mojikey, who appeared '
with the implements of painting. This wL'mJuaigroup
afforded some mirth, and met with general approb..tiqu,
until iome mil'chievous wag hinted the whole was a lam
poon upon an old officer, a physician, and a member of
Parliament; an insinuation which w:s no feontr circulat
ed, than these people began to be ajarmed, and even to
fancy themselves fignified by the several figures in the
piece. The rurious 'group fell npon who de
clared Ifcat he had no design to jjive offence, or tp cha
raderiz® B T'.icular perfom. They affirmed, tic rcfcmllance
was too patp:iblc to tc overlooked—afcd their clamottrs bcin'T
overheard by the public, the Captain was a bear, the
Dodtor ill al's, and the Senator an owl, to their dying
day." If a Cmilar late ihould attend.the persons who
will infill upon being the members of this group, iic
public will do the pub'iflisr the to renumber that
; t is ho fault of his.
