C. , that he keep? constantly on hand, and will supply at the shortest notice, that almost invaluable article YOUXG'H IMPROVED PATENT SMUT AND SCREENING MACHINE. Theonly Machine of the kind that has stood the test and i given satisfaction to tne puolic. 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 280 Machines running in N C; and I wish to offer no other references than the gentlemen who are using them, whns expectations have been more than realized in tlieir performance. It not only thoroughly cleanses the Wheat of smut, but also purifies it of all other substances, altnnst to perfection. It takes up but 4 fpet square in the Mill, and requires but little power. It is warranted fnr 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 Fait of the Maryland Institute, at Baltimore, last Fall.

IHE Subscriber, Laving four Plantations containing l about 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.
