SUB-SOIL AND TURN PLOW!
THE above Plow is now on exhibition in this place,
and may be seen at Woods & Gilkesons', Staunton,
and other convenient places in the County.
This plow has four distinctive features, all of which
recommend themselves. The first is the cambinatiou
of the Sub soil and Turn Plow, which is entirely new.
Tho second isthe manner in which the mould board is
attached to the standard, being so arranged as to slide
up or down, and may be so placed as to turn tne sod,
leaving the sub-soil perfectly broken without turning
up the clay. TLo third is the manner in which the
Plow is regulated, by means of a rod attached to the
landside and beam, which answers the double purpose
of Brace and Regulator, by which the depth of the fur
row may be fixed wijhout altering the harness. The
fourth is the manner in which the Point is attached.—
All these distinctive features have been patented by
Grey luley of North Carolina, and must recommend
themselves on elimination. It is vastly superior to
any plow now in use, being arranged to do any kind
of plowing the farmer may desire, and taken as a turn
Plow equal, if not superior, to any other. It is purely
a North Carolina invention. Ii was awarded the first
Premium at the Georgia State Fair, as a Turn Plow ;
also the First Premium as a Sub-soil Plow ; also the
First Premium at the State Fair of Alabama.
I own the county rights for the above plow for Au
gusta, Rockingham and Rockbridge, and am engag
ed in the manutacture of them at the "Valley Mills,"
near West View, Augusta county. Orders are solici
I respectfully invite all who feel any interest in the
improvement of agricultural implements to give us a
call and examine our Plow.

rpo THE~FARMERS OF AUGUSTA.—
I From an experience of Twenty years in the man
ufacture of Plows, I can safely say that the Plow in
troduced into this county by me, which I have been
making for the last fifteen years, known as the Z/F
--INGSION COUNTY PLO W, is the best and cheap
est Plow ever used in this County. Although
simple in its construction, to work well it must be
well gotten up, and I flatter myself that I can furnish
the article as cheap, as good, and if experience and
success are worth any thing, better than any one who
may undertake the manufacture of the article.
1 am prepared to furnish Plows, Points and Slides
in any quantity, that may be desired, warranting ev
ery piece that passes out of my hands ; if it is not
what it is represented to be, return it to the merchant
from whom purchased, and I will bear the loss. Full
assortments of Plows, Points and Slides may be found
