A Farm within the reach of every Man,
has made arrangement* by which all
who desire lo settle or purchase a home can
do so.
The Farms consist of the feet limestong
soil of tho most superior quality for farming,
in o rapidly improving -place, Into which an
extensive emigration is now pouring. The
property is located in Elk Coneiy, Ptnnsyl
vsnia, in the midst of a thriving population
of some 10,000. The climate is perfectly
hcalthv, and the terrible plague of-the west
fever le Unknown, ir eleo fcat'aa dkwndaneo
of the best quality of Coal and'lron. The
price to buy it out is from $3 lo (3D per acre,
psyablo by installments, to be locateJ at the
time of purchasing,or a share of twenty-five
actes entitling to locate tho same for $3OO,
payable $6 per month or 12} acres payable $4
per month. Discount for every sum o r $lOO
and under, paid in advance, and for over $lOO
adit ;Ount of 10 per cent.
Inconsidering the advantages of emigrating
to (his locality the following are presented :
FIRST — The soil is e rich liraostone,capenlo
of raising the heaviest crops, owing to.
this settlement has obtained Its present great
Bvcomi—lt is the centre of ,he greet North
West Coal liasic, and is destined soon to be
come one of the greatest business ) laces in
the Stale. It will supply the great Lake mar.
kcl, (according to tho population and trivcf
the greatest in the Union.) It hasfivework.
able veioa of the best Bituminous coal, amnunt
rug in the aggregate to over 22 feet, which
makes 22,000 tons of cosl under each acre.
This will make the lat>d of inestimable value.
The eminent geologist Dr. Chat. T. Jackson
of Boston, has made a gcoiogi cal survey of the •
land, and analysed the coal, the iron ore SDJ
limestone. This report together with maps
will be furnished to inquirers.
FOURTH— Three Railroads are laid out thro'
thisproperty. The Honburv and Eiie Railroad
gives us s market for our coal to the lakes—it
runs from Erie to Philadelphia. A large part
of tho Road has been finished, and ia now in
running order. A heavy force is now working
from Erie towards our land in the western di
rection, the means for the complvtiou of which
has been rui-eJ, it will soon be finished. The
Allegheny Yalley 'Railroad connects as with
New York, Boston and Pitisburg. The Ve
nango Road connects us with the Weet.
Theie are olrcady good Turnpiko Roads
running through this property, various other
roads have been opened to accommodate the
emigration and settlement which has alieady
taken place.
There is no opportunity equal to It now of
fered to the man who wants to provide himself
a home in an rosy way, and make a settlement
where he can live in proeperitv and independ
ence in a climate Perfectly Healthy.
No case of fevor ever having been known lo
.occur in this settlement. It Is not like going
to the backwoods of the West, among perhaps
iMolerant people, where there is no society,
churches, or schools, where the price of land is
high, and where the emigrant, after being used
to the healthiest climate in tho world, ha* to
endure sickness and pain, and perhaps ruins
his health and that of his family. But here is
a thriving settlement having thiee towns, con
taining churches, snhnola, hotels, stores saw
mills, grist mills, ami everything desired. There
is a cash mmket at hand. '1 he luhther trade
last year amcunled to over two hundred million
feel of lumber. In a short time, owing to tho
coal, it will become still moio valuable as a
number of iron woiks and manufactories will
suon be Marled; they are at present starting
tbem extensively ai Wairen. Even for those
who do not wish to go there, die payments
are such that they can easily buy a far in lo
save their rising families from want in (lie
future, or <o gain a competence by the rise
which will lake place in the value nf lands.
By an outlay seareoly missod, a substantial
provision can be made.

During twenty years' practice, I have re
stored to health over seventeen thousand pa
tients, who were suffering under the worst
forms of all of the above mentioned dis
eases, which guarantees nte in promising a
perfect and most speedy cure. Secret dis
eases arelhe greatest eneiaies to health and
happiness, as they are the first cause of con
sumption, scrofula, &c., and should he a ter
ror to all nations on the earth; for the dis
ease is becoming so comtson, and treatment
so little understood, that a permanent cure is
scarcely ever effected, as a majority of the
I cases fall into the hands of incompetent per-
I sons, who.not only fail to cure the malady,
| but ruin tho const-tulion with corrosive snb
limale—a dangerous poison, a preparation
of mercury—which, with the remains of dis
ease in the system, produces many of the
above named affections, whieh finally termi
nate iu consumption, and frequently a rapid
one ; but should it not cause death spesdrly,
and the victim to disease marries, the disease
is then conveyed (rom the patient to the chil
dren, causing tliem to coat#, iolo- Ihe world
with scrofula, affections of the akin, eyes,
throat, &c., and again terminates in con
sumption, and consigns his victim to an un
timely grave, between the ages of six months
and thirty-five years. Self-abenc is another
formidable enemy to health ; it destroys the
nervous system, rapidly wasting sway the
energies of life, causing mental derange
ment, preventing a proper development of
the system, and disqualifying its viciom for
marriage, society, business, and all earthly
happiness. Female Irregularities and other

AH State and County Records should al
ways be printed or written on this paper, as
the chemicals inserted in the pulp not only
prevent erasure or transfer, but make it last

For Southern Climates it is excellent, and
much eu| erior to any other; as the moistness
of the climate does not destroy it, —the prop
