ComnmcattMS. WASHKQTON RISLNG- Mr. Editor— It was my pleasure, a few days since, to make a tour to the county seat of Washing- ton, ánd I was struck with the beauty of the location, and more with the surrounding country, which presented to the eye. much that was to be adibired, and requir- ing but a moment's reflection to see. in the future, a land flowing with milk and honey. But sir, of the town and its work? of art, I cannot speak with so much pleasure, and in so much hope. It seems to be a very timid effort at a town, as the whole construction of the habitations is but slight, and they arc less finished than what one might expect to find in the Capital town of a county. As a stranger, I do not know the cause of this, and my object is not to make a com- parison hurtful to any, but to show your readers, that ability, in a business sense. and in point of sue and population, Washing- ton is surely moving onward. For in all parts of the town, we hear the song and hantlser of the arti...
