Blue Sulphur Springs, Virginia

The Blue Sulphur Springs, twelve miles west of Lewisburg, and twenty-one from the White Sulphur, will be open on the 1st of June for the reception of visitors.

The steady and growing popularity of this watering place has induced the proprietors to increase their exertions to render it more and more worthy of the public patronage. The improvements are upon the most liberal scale, and are sufficient at present to accommodate about three hundred persons. The waters themselves (long and favorably known for their highly medicinal qualities have been recently traced to their original fountain, (over which a Grecian Temple is now being erected,) and the supply has been found to be much more full and copious with an obvious increase of strength and quality. The roads have also been greatly improved since the last season, and the mail stages from Staunton to Guyandotte will continue to run by the springs.

The fine salubrious baths attached to the springs will be kept, as usual, in a style of neatness and comfort, and no pains or expense on the part of the propriety, or their immediate superintendent, Major William Vass, shall be wanting to sustain the reputation of the Blue Sulphur, and to render it the favorite resort of a liberal and enlightened public.
