PORTABLE STEAM ENGINES.
These Engines are of four different sizes, two of them—
the two smaIIest—STRICTLY PORTABLE, and easily
hauled by four or six horses, according to the state of the
roads, being mounted on strong and substantial wheels.—
The latter Engines are adapted to all the purposes of the
plantation, as sawing, grinding, ginning of cotton, thresh
ing. &c. The two largest Engines are DETACHED; the
boilers, smoke stack, &c , being mounted on strong and
substantial wheels, can be removed any where with a team
of 6or 8 horses. NO BRICK WORK IS REQUIRED TO PUT
THEM IN FULL OPERATION. One of the two smallest
Portable Engines is fljf 10 horse power, the other 5; both
are well adapted for the purposes before enumerated,
which should recommend them to planters and farmers, as
it is obviously their interest to have such labor saving
machinery on their plantations, and in their neighborhood,
as they are so arranged as to be exempt from all danger
of fire. The three Largest Engines can saw from 2.000 to

J FROM ELIDE ISLAND
I have now a supply of this GUANO direct from the gene
ral agent, and offer it to Farmers at $45 per ton of 2240 lbs.
In the American Farmer of February may be seen the
analys is of six distinguished Chemists, which analysis
shows an average of 13 per cent, of ammonia, (only 2*per
cent, less than the standard of Peruvian Guano,) and this
Guano being characterized by a large proportion of POTASH
AND SOLUBLE PHOSPHATES, it is confidently believed
that it will be found to be but little behind Peruvian in the
speedy benefit derived from the prompt action ofamraonia;
whilst in permanent benefit to the soil, it will excel the
best manufactured or manipulated Fertilizers. This GU
ANO is found in a rather finer state of division than the
Peruvian. It is put up in bags weighing about 150 pounds.

In introducing this HIGHLY AUTHENTICATED
FERTILIZER to the agriculturist of the United States,
for the year 1858, we forbear any lengthened remarks, as
their intelligence is already informed of the value of
BONES TREATED WITH SULPHURIC ACID, producing
the bi phospate of lime, atld yielding SOLUBLE PHOS
PHORIC ACID. the efficient and indispensable nutri
ment of plants.
As many preparations are offered to the public styled
"Super Phospate." we have for our own, and the protection
of the agricultural community, surrendered up to Prs
Higgins and Bicfcell the entire scientific feature of the
RHODES' SUPER PHOSPHATE OF LIME, and every lot
offered for sale is regularly analysed by them and reported
to the public, which we conceive will be a proper caution
to the agricultural community to protect them from impo

('AS CONSUMING STOVE.
The Desideratum of the Age.
DETERMINED and continued experiment
has we are pleased to say, resulted in triumph, and we
would invite our customers and the public to examine at
I our store, the acme of perfection, as a coal burning stove,
i for public business, stores, offices ftrc.
It is so constructed that the requisite quantity of oxygen
i ' 9 thrown over the surface of the fire-pot, this intercepts
j the gas, (which in other stoves goes up the draft,) and
i being consumed, quite one-third of the consumption of coal
is saved, besides the acquiring of a greater amount of heat
in the burning of the gases.
1 These Stoves require filling but once or twice a day, and
