The following information communicated by the Hon. Gabriel Moore, member of Congress from Alabama, to the Editor of the Huntsville Democrat, will be interesting to our readers.
WASHINGTON CITY, Dec. 20, 1828.
Dear Sir:- Shortly after my arrival here, I addressed a letter to the Commissioner of the General Land Office, wishing to be informed whether that Department contemplated bringing the public lands situated in Jackson County and that part of Madison which was taken from Jackson, into market shortly; and if so, what time? In reply, I received the enclosed letter. As this is official, and may be received as important information to many of my constituents, I shall be obliged to you to give it publicity through your paper, that those who wish may have the opportunity afforded them of availing themselves of the advantage of timely notice.
I am, Sir, most respectfully, Yours, 'c.

With great respect, your obedient servant.
