Mrs. A. VAUGHAN having perfected arrangements with Firms in Philadelphia and Charleston, (with whom the late Captain James Vaughan traded for many years) is prepared to furnish Italian and American monuments, tombs, &c, of the latest style and finish, and on the most reasonable terms.  Also iron railing.  Would refer to the monuments recently erected for Mrs. Parrott as a specimen of the filling of orders entrusted to her.  Not having the experience of a marble yard, her prices are moderate, being satisfied with a small percent.  She respectfully asks a share of public patronage.  Designs and prices sent to persons at a distance.

Cartersville, Ga., April 24, 1873.
