keeps constancy on hand, and will supply at the shortest
notice, that almost invaluable article
YOUXG'rt IMPROVED PATENT
SMUT AND SCREENING MACHINE.
The only Machi ne nf the kind that has stood the teat and
i;iven 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 lor it. The
pubiic need Tear no imposition, as there are ddw some 280
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,
aImo9tto 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
ti 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
liare 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.

riHE Subscriber, having 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.
T-iere 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 rebuilt, 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. . . .-,
