The machinery is all of cast iron, and in complete repair, with a saw mill, plaster mill, Cooper's shop, warehouse, and two good dwellings attached. The tract contains about 90 acres of land, 22 of which are first rate meadow. Linganore is certainly one of the most constant streams in the State, and is more than competent to drive all the machinery now in operation.

Ballinger's Creek runs nearly through the centre of the tract, and affords an excellent seat for any kind of water works, within 50 yards of the Baltimore and Ohio Rail Road, consisting of an extensive rough case Mansion House, Green house, overseer's house, quarter, and brick Switzer barn, with a permanent Horse Mill and Threshing Machine of the most approved kind attached, &c. &c. &c.

Within one and a half miles of Woodsboro', [as punctuated] in Frederick County, Md., containing 375 and 3-4 Acres. This tract is capable of being made one of the most productive in the fertile valley in which it is situated, and has wood and water sufficient to admit of a division. The improvements consist of a comfortable log recently thoroughly repaired, new stone Switzer Barn, &c. &c. with one of the best springs in the county near the door.
Also - the following valuable City property:
The house and lot in Patrick St., nearly opposite the City Hotel, occupied by Mr. Basil NORRIS as a grocery store and dwelling house and the one occupied by Mr. D. H. THOMPSON as a dry goods store.
