A few words about the quality and value of this land
for cultivation, of which we have RM. Slrollg proof.
Our first vieit was to , William D. Wilson, - in Frauklin
township,, doucester,county, who purchased spine eight
miles north of Millville; about three years ago, for the
purpose of establishing ashram mill, to work up the tim
ber into lumber, to send off by the new railroad, as well
its the fitewood and coal, for which he built a pack one
mile and a half long, Ile also furnished sixteen miles of
the road with tie., and had no doubt made the mill prof-
Balite, though his main object was to open a farm, hav
ing beconie convinced that the soil was very valuable for
cultivation. In this he has not•been disappointed, as
some of his crops prove. For instance, the second time
of cropping, 306 bushels of, potatoes on one a,cre, worth

without manure, produced ;Cili bushels Cif 'bets. In one

In other cases the corn crop of last year was followed

probably 40 or 50 bushels. Sweet potatoes, beans, mel

that this long neglected tract of land should remain so no
longer; and there is now a strong probability that it will'
