This Company havesecurtd a charter from Con gress, appropriating their ground forever to burial purpose, making a fee title to the purchaser, and prohibiting all encroachments from legislation or otherw ise, which is of va?t importance to those who wish their dead to repose where they have placed them, for it has become a custom in all other cities when the burial ground becomes valu able for other purpo>es, to sell it, a'd throw the dead promiscously into one large pit, and legal measures cannot prevent it, as no titles are given to the gTOund N.

' je 18?ly THE FAUQUIER WHITE SULPHtR SPRINGS ARE now open for the recepMon of Company, and in a far more attractive condition than they ever have be*?n. A gross misrepresentation against therm having been published in the Petersburg Intelli gencer and Baltimore Sun to the effect that th>-j were closed for th* season is now traced to aa ir responsible source unworthy of notice. It is j-roj^r ?o state that" there is no shadow of foundation for it The subscritK-r trusts that he wttl not be made the victim of such malignity; and the respectable journals which have given currency to the rumor by transferring it to tbeir columns will di-abuse the public mind through the same medium.
