SMUT AND SCREENINGVMACHINTE. ,
The only Machine of the kind that has stood the lest and
given satisfaction to the public. It has surplan'ed every
Smut Machine yet ottered in the State, more or less ol
which has been taken down to make room lor it. The
public need tear no imposition, as there are now some 2S0
Machines running in N. C; and I wish to offer no other
references than the gentlemen who are. using them,
whose expectations have been more than realized in
their performance. It not only thoroughly cleanses the
W heat ot smut, but also punftps it ot all other substances,
almost to perfection. It takes up but 4 feet square in
the Mill, and requires but little power. It is warranted
fur five years against breaking or wearing out, and also
to retain its cleaning qualities for that time.
There are a number of these Machines through which
100,000 bushels of Wheat have been cleaned, and they
have never been out of order one dav.
There was awarded to it the Premium at the Maryland

Prospectus of thk SOUTHERNER. The un
dersigned proposes to publish in the Town of Tar
borough, from the 1st of January, 1852, the Southerner,
a Democratic, Agricultural and Miscellaneous newspa
per. .From the small number of Democratic papers in
the State, we confidently ask the support of the party.
Few political fields offer to the ready and willing work
man in our cause promise of a more ahundant harvest,
than North Carolina. Our party are becoming, day by
day, more uianimous on the subject of slavery and its
incidental doctrines, which our opponents so confidently
thought would destroy our organization, 'while many ef
their own party are fast becoming disatisfied with the
cringing position they would have us occupy in our Na
tional Union. To encourage and perfect this unanimity
of our own party, and toshow to the disatisfied of our
opponents that such dissatisfaction spring from a true
appreciation of liberty and a correct view of patriotism,
is the peculiar proper work of the press. Supjort, then.
Democrats, .as you ought and can. your party papers,
throughout the State.
- The Southerner will be tho exponent of Edgecombe,
it will advocate her principles, cherish the progressive
spirit ol her people, and defend her reputation and good
name. . As such, we hope to embody in it, by the talents
of our farmers and citizens generally, the practical rules
and successful experience, which have increased so much
her productive industry; and thereby make it, to the
citizens of other counties, a neighborly and instructive
messenger. ', ' ,1 .
- As a village paper, we hope to make The Southerner,
ny the variety of its matter, interesting to all. Its col
umns will be open to a free and liberal discussion of all
sbbjects instructive and amusing. '

posed of my interest to Isaac Procter, (my partner for the
last eight years,) I take pleasure in recommending him
to those who hav- stood by me so long, as a gentlemen
every way worthy of their confidence and support.
I look upon Mr. Procter, without attempting to dis
parage others, and what I say now must be believed,
(being totally disconnectod with him in business) as be
ing the very best cutler I ever paw. He will be assis
ted by Geo- L. Gould, a pupil of mine, who has been
cutting all the Coats made up for our customers for the
last luuiteen monlhs, ai d has 110 superior in-that depart

may rely upon being as faithfully served, having their

terials just such as would he furnished, were 'The

hard to build up a business in North Carolina, and desire
that those who hare patronised me should' continue to
uphold my late partner, particularly when assured by
me, that they will be as well served as they were under
the administration of Oliver & Procter.'
