\ NEW AGRICULTURAL SETTLE
il MENT.—To all wanting farms, a rare opportunity
in a delightful and healthy climate 25 miles southeast of
Philadelphia on the Camden and Atlantic Railroad, New
Jersey. An old estate consisting of several thousands of
acres of productive si.il has been divided into Farms of
various sizes to suit the purchaser. A population of some
Fitteen Hundred, from various parts o! the middle States
and New England have settled there the past year, im
proved their places, mid raised excellent cr. ps. The
price of the land is at the low sum of from sls to S2O
per acre, the soil is of the best quality tor the production
of llhrat. Clover. Corn, Peaches, Crapes and Vegeta
bles. It is considered the best fruit soil in the Union.—
The place is perfectly secure from frosts—the destructive
enemy of the farmer." Crops of grain, grass and fruit are
now growing and can be seen. By examining the place
itself, a correct judgment can be formed of the produc
tiveness of the land. The terms are made easy to secure
the rapid improvement*of the land, which is only sold for
actual improt ement- Tlte result has been, that within the
past ye ar, some three hundred houses have been erected,
two mills, one steam, four stores, some forty vinyard and
Peach orchards, planted, and a large number of other
improvements, making it a desirable aud active place of
The Market, as the reader may perceive from its loca
tion, is the best in the Union. Produce bringing double
the price than in locations away Irotn the city, aud more
than double the price than the West. It is known that
the earliest and best fruits and vegetables in this latitude
come from New Jersey, and are annually exported to the
extent of millions.
In locating here, the settler has many advantages. He
is within a few hours ride of the great cities of New Eng
land and Middle States, lie is near his old friends and as
sociations, lie is in a settled country where every improve
ment of comfort and civilization is at hand. He can buy
every article he wants at the cheapest price, and sell his
produce (or the highest, (in tlie West this is reversed.)
lie lias schools for his children, divine se.Tice, and will
enjoy an open winter, and delightful climate, where fev
ers are utterly unknown. The result of the change upon
those from tlie north, has generally been to restore them
to an ex client state of health.
In the way of building and improving, lumber can be
obtained at the mills at the rate of $lO or sls per thou
sand. Bricks froin the brick yard opened in the place
every article can be procured in the place, good carpen
ters are at hand, and there is noplace in the Union where
buildings and improvements can lie made cheaper.
The leader will at once be struck with the advantages
here presented, and ask himself why the property has not
been taken up before. The reason is, it was never thrown
in the market; and unless these statements were correct,
no one would be iuvited to examine the land before pur
chasing-. This all are expected to do. They will see the
land under cultivation, such is the extent of the settle
ment that they will no doubt, meet persons, from their
own neighborhood ; they will witness the improvements
and can judge the character of the population. It they
come with a view to settle, they should come prepared to
stay a day or two and be ready to purchase, as locations
cannot be held on refusal.
There are two daily trains to Philadelphia, and to all
settlers who improve, TUB RAILROAD COMPANY GIVES A
FREE TICKET FOR SIX MONTHS, AND A HALF-PRICE TICKET
FOR THREE YEARS.
THE TOWN OF HAMMONTON.—In connection with
the agricultural settlement, a new and thriving town has
naturally arisen, which / uesents inducements fur any kiml
of business, particularly stores and manufactories. The
Shoe business could be carried on in this place and market
to good advantage, ul-o cotton business, and manufacto
ries of agricultural implements or Founderies for casting
small articles. The improvement has been so rapid as to
insure a constant and pe-inanent increa-e of business
T wn lots of a good size, we do not sell small ones, as it
would eirect the improvement of the place, can be had at

This arrangement has been adopted for the past term,

the plan pursued in former years. Special pains will he
taken to secure the greatest progress ot those wishing to
take lessons in this branch. Tci ;ns will be as heretofore :

ble that they also furnish their own bed and bedding

furnished at a slight charge.

Theory and Practice of Teaching, as also on other subjects
connected with Normal training.
Those persons, therefore, intending to engage in teach

tojjbe present during the Fall terra.
