A 3 Proprietors, ! we have opened this TA-
'! VERN, the oldest Establishment of the
kird in Petersburg", whidi I has been much
improved from time to time, in all the inte
rior apartments, as well aa by additional
bniJdinirs, so as to answer all the purpose
of a public Tavern and Boarding House.
Such are the arrangements of the building
and accommodations, with i soine new im
provements which are rapidly advancing to
a state of completion, that Travellers and
visitors, with Ladies and young families, can
be conveniently and agreeably entertained.
The premises are located in close contiguity
to the most commercial part of this grow'ng
and Drosnerous town, and leinic so exten
sively and happily situated, that calm retire
ment, or a public situatioa, can be enjoyed
at pleasure . "" j " '- ; ' .
The Proprietors shall, upon all occasions,
make it their pleasure and duty to give sa
tisfaction ; and with a sincere view to accom
plish that great and desirable ' object, they
shall spare no pains or expence whatever, irt
all the departments of the Establishment
particularly by presenting excellent Lodging
Rooms, duly furnished ; good Servants, ho
nest and attentive ; an abundant TABLE,
with thfe most choice viands ; as well as the
best of Wfnes and other Liquors, which our
oountrv 'ill afford. We are not unmindful
df the important value" of a well regulated
and furnished Stable our friends, and visit
ors, may Vest assured that this department
shall answer every just expectation, and to
effect that object we have employed an able
and experienced Ostler, distinguished .ibr.
his attention and fidelity he will do his du
ty. Our Stables and Carriage-Houses are
now large, and will also be improved. Our
water lot is such that Horses can have free
access to water when' so ordered, the stable
lot being immediately situated on Appamar
tox river. j
This is the same Establishment which was
so long owned and managed by Mr. .lame
Durell, who enjoyed so nyich prosperitvin
our line, and gave such general satisfaction
He was succeeded by Mr. French, and af
terwards byj Mr. Eckles. These two jkst
Gentlemen justly merited and received the
attention ' ot j Mr. DurelPa friends ; we hope
to do the same. ; ,
DAVID MEADE' resTd-.s or'the premises
and will conduct the affairs, of this House,
assisted by Mr. COOPFR, who has long ser
ved in this Establishment, and his correct
deportment is so generally known, as to
make it unnecessary for us to tender "assur
ance or recommendation in that respect, ;
It is useless for us to state our rates for
Board, by the day, w4ek, month or year
they are . as moderate as the abundance of
our highly favored country require on this
subject, we confidently hope our town and
country frends, visitors and strangers, will
have no cause to complain. ;" We close with,
asking it as a favor, that no person may ever
leave our house with a feeling or sentiment
of complaint, without stating the causedthe
proper explanation or redress will always be
maie. t : ' :' ;;.''' V-
We think it; necessary to add, that kind
nature has favored us with a healthy situati
on. The Water used at our house is per
haps from the best Springs below the moun
tains, and our Ice House is very convenient,

fertile soil, well adulated to tlirpr'v"uc.
fion of rice, indigo, bemt tracer, or do-'

kind,' as the part of it now in "culture
proves, as t produces, in quantify equal
tv any land of the same quality in the ,
State. Indeed! the whole tract is sustsep- f
ible of being made of immense value, by
industry & good husbandry, for it is uncom
mnly well watered, and abounds with th?
most valuable white and red oak, cypress,
qedar, pine, and other valuable timber;,
all of the most superior quality, and can-
hie of furnishing an inexhaustible qusnti
y of staves, ' whoop poles, scantlinjr.
plank, boards,ann naval stores, peculiar
ly Hvell adapted to the West India mar
kets, to which it has a ready outlet from
the river i bank, by Wilmington, frotn
which' it is distant but 28 miles, and t
which there is a safe and bold navigation,
as well by the north-east branch of thef
Cape-Fear as by Holly Shelter creek,
which bounds it on the N E. side. S
that there! is not in the State a tract ot
land combining more advantages for t
trade with the West Indies, than this
does: or indeed, with any other country
marte', where lumoer ot every desenpy
tion, and naval stores, "may be articles o

On the.tract there are two fine mill seats
and some others can be made1 with a tri
fling expense of money and labor and d
iacentlto it; there are threr or four valu
able saw, mills, somsof which have made
good fihnk andscantlingt l&c.from timber
got on this tract. So that it enjoys ever
fapiliry that can be reasonably desired for
manufacturing the timber into lumber Cb
for market ; and h market can abVays-lb
