After a full examination, the physician is clear in

stamps on Promissory Notes.—As the
the season for sales of personal property is rapidly
approaching, when large numbers of promissory
notes are executed, it rutty be interesting to the
public to lino! the scale of stamp duties which• the
law of 1862 imposes upon such notes. It is as fol- .
From $ 26 to $ 100 ....
" • 100 to 200 ..
200 to 350 ....
' 350 to 500 ....
• 44 500 to 750 ....

" 1,000 to 1,500
. 44 1,500 to 2,500
" 2,500 to 5,000
The penalty for violating the law is fifty dollars,
and the instrument is rendered invalid and of no
avail. These stamps can he procured, we believe,
from the Register and Recorder, and the other
County officers. —lb.

New Settlement, of Vineland.
A REMEDY FOR HARD TIMES.
A Rare Opportunity in the Best Market, and Most De
lightful and Healthful Climate in the Union. Only
thirty miles South of Philadelphia, on a Railroad;
being a Rich, _Heavy Soil, and BiYhly Productive
Wheat Land; Amongst the Best in the Garden State
of New Jersecj.
11. consists of'2o,oooacres of GOOD lend,•divi'ied
into Farms of different sizes to suit the'purelteser—
FllO3l 20 ACRES AND UPWARDS—and is sold at the rate
of from $l5 to $2O per 'sere for the farm land, pay
able one-fourth cash, and the balance by quarter
yearly installments, with legal interest, within the
term of four years. -
The Soil is, in great. part, a Rich Clay Loam, suit
able for Wheat, Wass and Potatoes—also it dark end
rich sandy Mani, suitable for corn, sweet-potatoes,
tobacco, alt kinds of Vegetables and root crops,.and
the 'finest varieties of fruit; such as Grapes, Pears,
Peaches, Apricot's, Nectirines, Blackberries, filelenS
and other fruits,
best adaptid to the Philadelphia
and New York Markets. In respect to the soil and
crops there can he no mistake, as visitors can exam
ine both, and none are expected to b6y before so do
ing, and finding these statements correct—under
these circumstances, unless these statements were
correct, there would be no use in their being made.
It is considered the best Fruit soil in the Union.
[See Reports of Solon Robinson, Esq., of the
New York Tribune, and the well-known agriculturist.
William Parry, of Cinnaminson, New Jersey, which
will be furnished inquirers.]
The Marl:el.—By looking over a map the reader
will perceive that it enjoys the best market in the Un
ion, and has direct communication with New York
and Philadelphia, twice a day, Hing only thirty-two
miles from the latter: Produce 1: this market brings
double the price that it does in locations distant
from the cities. In this location it can be put into
market the same morning it is gathered, and for
what the farmer sells he gets the highest price:
whilst groceries' and other articles he purchases he
gets at the lowest price. In the West, what he sells
brings him a pittance, but for what he buys he pays
two prices. in locating here the settler has many
other advantages. He is within a few hours, by
railroad, of all the great cities of New England and
theAliddle States. He is near his old friends and
associations. He has school for his children, di
vine service,,and all the advantages of civilization,
and he is near a large city.
The Climate is delightful ; the winters being sa
lubrious and open, whilst the summers are no warm
er than in the North. The location is upon the
line of latitude with northern Virginia.
Persons Wanting a change of Climate for Health,
would be much benofitted in Vineland. The mild
ness of the climate and its bracing influence, makes
it excellent for all pulmonary affections; dyspepsia or
general debility. Visitors will notice a difference in
a few days. Chills and freers are unknown.
Conveniences at Iland.—Building material is plen
ty. Fish and oysters are plenty and cheap.
Visitors must expect, however; to see a new place:
Why the Property has not been Settled Before Y
This question the reader naturallTasks. It is be
cause.it has been held in large tracts by families not.
disposed to sell, and being without railroad facilities
they bad few inducements.' The Railroad has just
been opened through the. property this season, for
the first time.
Visitors are shown over the land in a carriage,
free of expense, and afforded time and opportunity
for thorough investigation. Those who come with
a view to settle, should bring money to secure their
purchases, as locations are not held upon refusal.
The Safest thing in Hard Times, where people,
have been thrown out of employment. or business,
and possess some little means or small incomes, is to
start themselves a home. They can buy a piece of
land at a small price, and earn more than wa t ,es in
improving it, and when it is done it is a certain in
dependence and no toss. .A few acres in fruit trees
will insure a comfortaMe living. The land is put
clown to hard times, and all improvements can be
made at a cheaper rate than most any other time.
The whole tract, with six miles front on the rail
road, is being laid out with fine and spacious aven
ues, with i town in the centre—live acre lots in the
town sell at from $l5O to $200; two and a-half acre
lots, at from $BO to $l2O, and town lots
. 50 feet front
by 1•30 feet deep, . sloo—payable one-half cash
and tie balance within a year. It is only upon
farms of twenty acres, or more, that four years'
time is 'given.
To Manufacturers, the town affords a fine opening
for the Shoe manufacturing business, and other ar
ticles, being near Philadelphia, and the surrounding
country has a large population, which affords a
This settlement, in the course of several years,
will be one of the most beautiful places in the coun
try, and most agreeable fur a residence.
It is intended to make it a Vine and Fruit. grow
ing country, as this culture is the most profitable
and the best adapted to the market. Every advan
tage and convenience for settlers will be introduced
which will insure the prosperty of tbe place. The
hard times throughout the country will be an advan
tage to the settlement., as it compels people to resort
to agriculture for a living.
Large numbers of people are purchasing, and the
people who desire the best location should visit the
place at once.
Improved Land is also for sale.

forms of ancient shells, of the tertiary formation;
and this manly substance is scattered all through the
soil, in a very comminuted form, and in the exact

the farmer desires to cultivate.
Marl, in all its forms, has been used to fertilize
crops in England; from the time it was occupied by
the Romans; and in France and Germt.ny a marl
bed is counted on as a valuable bed of manure, that
can be dug and carted and spread over the field.—
How much more valuable then it must be, when found
already mixed through the soil, where new particles will
be turned up and exposed,.and transformed to the owner's
use every time he stirs the earth.
Having. then satisfied our minds of the cause., they
will not be excited with wonder at seeing indubitable
evidence of fertility in a soil which in other situa
tions, having the same general characteristics or at
least appearances, is entirely unrenumerative except
as its productiveness is promoted by artificial fertil

Our first visit was to William D. Wilson, Franklin
township,, Gloucester county, who purchased somo
eight miles north of Millville, shout three years ago,
for the purpose of establishing a steam mill, to work
up the timber into lumber, to send off by the new
railroad, as well as the firewood and coal, for which
be built a branch track a mile and a half long. lie
also furnished. sixteen miles of the road with ties,
and has no doubt made the mill profitable, though
his main objectwas to open a farm, having become
convinced that the soil wns valuable for cultivation.
In this he has not been disappointed, as some Of his
crops *ive: For instance, last. year, the second
tints of cropping, 306 bushels of potatoes on one
acre, worth a/ cents a bushel in the field. This year
seven acres, without manure, produced 336 bushels
of oats. In one field, the first crop was potatoes,
planted among the roots, and yielded 75 bushels.—
The potatoes were dug,'and wheat sown, and yield
ed 16'bushels ; and the stubble turned under and
sown to buckwheat, which yielded 33 bushels ;
and then theground was sown•to clover and timothy,
which gave as a.fiest crop 21 tons per acre.
The fertilizers applied to these crops were first,
ashes from clearings: second, 225 pounds of super
phosphate of lime; third; 200 pounds Peruvian gu
ano;- then 50 bushels of slaked lime has been spread
upon the clever since it was mowed, and turned in
for wheat. •
Mr. Wilson's growing crops, and the wheat stub
ble of the presenr, season, all indicate his land as
productive as any part of the State.
At Mary Barrow's, an old style Jersey woman
farmer, several miles south of Mr. Wilson's, we were
so particularly struck with the fine appearance of a
field Of corn, thatwe, stopped to inquire of the hitt,:
man how it was produced. We found that the laud
had been the year but one before in wheat. sown
with clover, and this cut one season, and last spring
plowed once, with one "poor old nag," and planted.
with corn. •
"Yes, but. you manured high, we suppose ?" we
said interrogatively, and got this reply :
"Waal, you see, we couldn't a done that; 'cause
we hadn't but forty one-horse loads altogether, for
23 acres, and we wanted the most on't for the tr:sek.
The truck consisled of beets, carrots, cabbi.ge,
cucumbers, melonS, &c., and a very productive patch
of Lima beans, grown. for marketing. So we were
satisfied that the soil was notiafertile, even unaided
by clover, which had fed the COM, becauset he "truck
patch"... had not been in oultivati,n long enough to
obliterhte all signs 'of the forest.
Our next visit was to the large farm of Andrew
Sharp, five miles north of Millville, from half to a
mile east.Ofthe railroad, and just about in the cen
tre of Vineland. Mr. Sharp commenced work bens
in December, 1858, upon 270 acres. In lees than
three years, he has got. 234 acres cleared and in
