UTLKY'S PATENT
SUB-SOIL AND TURN PLOW!
THE above Plow is now on exhibition in this place,
and may be seen at Woods k Gilkesons', Staunton,
and other convenient places in the County.
This plow has four distinctive features, all of which
recommend themselves. The first is the cambination
of the Sub soil and Turn Plow, which is entirely new.
Th<i> second is the 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 tbe sod,
leaving the sub-soil perfectly broken without turning
up the clay. The 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 without altering the harness. The
fourth is the manner in which the Point is attached.—
. All these distinctive features have heen patented by
Grey Utley of North Carolina, and must recommend
themselves on examination. 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. It was awarded the first
Premium at the Georgia State Fair, as a Turn Plow ;
also the First Premium as a Sab-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 manufacture of them at the "Valley Mills,"
near West View, Augusta county- Orders are solici
ted.
I respectfully invite all who feel any interest in the
improvement of agricultural implements to give us a
call and examine our Plow.

SOLUBLE AMMONIATED PHOSPHAT
IC GUANO.—Made of Guanos of our own direct
importation, and uuder the personal supervision and
direction of Da. R. H. Stabler, Chemist, of this city.
This fertilizer we confidently recommend, as the
most permanent and cheapest offered to the public.—
Being composed of No. 1 Peruvian and Sombrero Gu
anos, of our own direct importation, we warrant it in
every respect. The Sombrero Guano, before being
mixed, is rendered immediately soluble, by the addi
tion of Sulphuric acid. This treatment is universally
recommended by the most eminent Agricultural
Chemists. Without it, the actions of the two Guanos
when mixed is not simultaneous, and consequently
comparatively inefficient.
This is the only mixture of the Ammoniated and
Phosphatic Guanos we know of yet ofiered to the Ag
.•! "oi. muiity, i- a really soluble form.

picture that can be gotten in New York or any other
Northern city. I am taking life-size PhotogTaphs
which are colored in Oil, by which means a perfect
likeness and a most beautiful picture is secured. The
same effect can be produced from small Daguerreo
types or Miniatures, which, for effect and durability,
equal the best Portraits; small size Photographs, col

LIFE INSURANCE.
Now is the time to provide for your family. It
should be attended to now, first, because it is less ex
pensive than it will be when you get older; second,
because, if iv health, you will pass a medical exami
nation and be accepted; third, because life is uncer
tain aud delays dangerous. "Procrastination is the
thief of time." Disease may come upon you, death
may overtake you, and in an hour when you think not
you may be suddenly cut off. and that without reme
dy to your family. Wait not, then, for a more conve
ment season, accept the boon while it is near, and a
the earliest possible convenience provide for yout
household the means of an honest livelihood, when
time shall be no more. That opportunity is afforded
yon now. Call, then, at once upon the Agent, who
may be seen for a few days at the Virginia Hotel or
upon Dr. J. A. Waddell, who will, in the absence o
the Agent, afford facilities for getting out Policies of

simple in its construction, to work well it must De

success are worth any thing, better than any one who
may undertake the manufacture of the article.
I am prepared to furnish Plows, Points and Slides \
