FJMHE Undersigned would respectfully inform those JL engaged in the Milling Business in N. C. ,that he keeps constantly on hand, and will supply at the shortest notice, that almost invaluable article YOUNG'S IMPROVED PATENT SMUT AND SCREENING MACHINE. The only Machine of the kind that has stood the test and fciven satisfaction to the public. It has surplan'ed every Smut Machine yet offered in the State, more or less of which has been taken down to make room tor it. The public need fear 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 Wheat of smut, but also purifies it of all other substances, almost to perfection. It takes up but 4 feet square in the Mill, and requires but little power. It is warranted for 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 day. There was awarded to it the Premium at the Maryland State Fair, and a Premium with a Silver Medal, at the Fair of the Maryland Institute, at Baltimore, last Fall.

THE Subscriber, having four Plantations containing ahout 4,500 acres on this River, is disposed to sell one of them, and to a good neighbor, who will continue the system of improvement, the terms will be made very advantageous. The estate contains about 1000 acres, consisting of the usual portions of low grounds, second low grounds, and uplands, part of which has been greatly improved by Liming, Plaster and Clover. T tere is every advantage of River communication with Norfolk ind Plymouth ; the Railroad to the former will soon be completed, and if the Raleigh and Gaston Road is rcbudt, the estate will be accessible from Raleigh in half a day's ride. The health of the low Country has unquestionably changed within the last ten years, so it is no longer unsafe to reside there.
