4 NEW AGRICULTURAL SETTLE
XA MENT—To all wanting farms, a rare opportunity
in a delightful and healthy climate 25 miles southeast of
Philadelphia on the ('aruilen 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
Fifteen Hundred, from various parts of the middle States
and New England have settled there the past year, im
proved their places, and raised excellent crops. 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 Wheat, Clover, Corn, Peaches, Gropes and IVgcfa
htes. It is considered the best fruit soil in the Union.—
The place is perfectly secure from frosts—the destructive
enemy of the farmer. Crops ot grain, grass and fruit are
now growing and can be seen. By examining the place
itself, a correct judgment can be formed ot the produc
tiveness of the land. The terras are made easy to secure
the rapid improvement of the land, which is only sold for
actual impro• ement. The result has been, that within the
past, year, some three hundred houses have been erected,
two mills, one steam, four stores, some forty vinyard and
Peach orchards, planted, and a large numlier of other
improvements, making it a desirable and active place of
The Market, as the reader may perceive from its loon
tion,.is the best in the Union. Produce bringing double
the price than in locations away from the city, and 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, he is near his old friends and as
sociations, he is in a settled country where every improve
ment of comfort and civilization is at hand. lie can buy
pvery article he wants at the cheapest price, and sell his
produce for the highest, (in the West this is reversed,)
lie has schools for his children, divine service, and will
enjoy an open winter, and delightful climate, where lev
ers are utterly unknown. The result of the change upon
those from the north, has generally been to restore them
to an excellent state of health.
In the way of building and improving, lumber can be
obtained at the mills at the rate rtf $lO or sls per thou
sand. Bricks from the brick yard opened in the place
t-very article can be procured iu the place, carpen
ters are at hand, and there is noplace in the Union where
buildings and improvements can be made cheaper.
The reader will at once be struck with the advantages
here presented, and ak 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 invited 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 110 doubt, meet persons, from their
own neighborhood ; they will witness the improvements
and can judge the character of the population. If they
come with a view to settle, they should come prepared to
stay a day or two and lie ready to purchase, as locations
cannot lie held on refusal.
There are two daily trains to Philadelphia, and to all
settlers who improve, THE RAILROAD COMPANY HIVES A
FREE TICKET FOR SIX MONTHS, AND A HALF-PRICE TICKET
FOR THREE YEARS
1 HE TON N OF HAMMONTON.—In connection with
the agricultural settlement, a new and thriving town has
naturally arisen, which presents inducements for any kind
of business, particularly stores and manufactories. The
Shoe business could he carried 011 in thispiace and market
to good advantage, also cotton business, and manufacto
ries ot agricultural implements or Founderiet for casting
small articles. The improvement has been so rapid as to
insure a constant and permanent increase of business. -
Town lots of a good size, we do not sell small ones, as it
would effect the improvement of the place, can be had at
from SIOO and upwards.

taken to secure the greatest progress of those wishing to
take lessons in this branch. Terms will be as heretofore :
Tuition on Piano Forte, per term $lO on

ble that they also furnish their own bed and bedding
when it is convenient, but when otherwise, these will be
furnished at a slight charge.
It is strongly recommended that students from abroad
should Isiard in the Institution, as better opportunities
for advancement in study are thereby secured.
Normal Department—Special exercises are arranged
without extra charge for those preparing themselves as
Teachers of Common Schools. Prof. ('. R COBI'RN, the
able and well known Superintendent of Common Schools
in the county, bas kindly consented to organize the Tea
cher s class, and direct the course to le pursued.
He will also be present to conduct its exercises as often
as practicable, and will deliver frequent lectures on the
1 henry and I'racticeot Teaching, as also on other subjects
connected with Normal training.
Those persons, therefore, intending to engage in teach
ing for the winter, will lind it greatly to their advantage
to be present during the Fall term.
Prof. Coburu's connection with the institution is not
such as to in any way interfere with the discharge of the
regular duties of his office.
No pains will he spared, on the part of the Faculty and
Trustees in sustaining the high repulatation the institu
tion has hitherto enjoyed, and iu rendering it more wor
thy of future patronage and support

which are warranted greatly anperior to the common'
Rack and Pinion Power. Our Horse Power is unequalled
for convenience by any other being adapted to a great

that it is double geared, and that both ends of the main

Powers run easily, are strong, well finished and made
from good materials.
