GENERAL SCOTT, in the commencement of this War, heard of a man who had an excellent Map of Virginia and Maryland, showing every city, town, wagon road, creek, run, etc. ; just such a map as the General needed to plan the campaign upon. He sent to the man and offered him $300 for the map, but the man, unpatriotically, thought to speculate upon the necessities of the Government, and refused to take less than $3000 for the map, which fact being communicated. to General Scott, he sent a file of soldiers and took the map without paying the man any thing for it. The verdict of the public was " Served him right !" Copies of this map, which General Scott thought well worth $300, are now ready for the public under the title of Lloyd's Military Map of Virginia and Maryland. Size of sheet, 33x46 inches. Scale 9 miles to an inch. Beautifully colored in counties. Price only 25 cents. This map was drawn and engraved on this scale, so that it could be had by the public at a cheap price. Nothing has been left off that was on the original. It shows every railroad and station, every wagon-road, cross road, river, creek, run, city, town, post-town, canal, mountain, harbor, sea-coast, fort, battery, and encampment. It is just the map the public have long needed to trace the operations of the armies in Virginia, and is now ready for delivery. It will be sent by mail on receipt of the price. Agents wanted everywhere. Send for circular, address EDWARD F. LLOYD, Publisher, 208 Broadway, New York.
