The Market.---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 dity,l—iing only thirty-two
miles from the latter.. Produce i; 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. Ile is within a few hours, by

Why the Property lies not been Settled Beforeg:

The geologist would soon di:Sel , VCr the cause of this
continued fertility. The whole country is a marine
deposit, and all through the soil we found evidences
of calcareous substances. generally in the form of
indurated calcareous marl, showing many distinct
forms of ancient shells, of the tertiary formation :
and this manly substance is scattered all tlirough the
soil, in a very comminuted term. and in the exact
condition most easily assimilated by such plants as
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 Cernu.ny a marl
bed is counted on as a valuable bed of manure, ant
can be dug and carted and spread over the field
Hoot ?lluch more valuable then it must be, when Aland'
already mixed through the soil. where new particles trill
be turned up and exposed. and transformed to the owner's
use every time he stirs the earth.
Having then satisfied our minds of theeause, 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
A few words about the quality and value 'of this
lams for cultivation, of which we have some strong
Our first visit was to William D. Wilson, Franklin
township, Gloucester county, who purchased sonic
eight miles north of Millville, about three years ago,
for the purpose at' establishing a steam mill, to work
up the timber into lumber, to send oft' by the new
railroad, as well as the firewood and coal. for which
he built. a branch track a mile and a half long. lle
also furnished sixteen miles of the road with ties,
and has no doubt made the tnill profitable, though
his main object. was to open a farm, having become
convinced that the soil was valuable for cultivation.
In this lie has not been disappointed, as some of his
crops prove. For instance, last year, the second
time of cropping, 301$ bushels of potatoes on one
acre, worth 01) cents a bushel in the field. This year
seven acres, without manure, produced 356 bushels
of oats. In one field, the first crop was potatoes,
planted among the roots, and yielded 75 bushels.—
The potatoes were Aug. and wheat sown, and yield
ed. 16 bushels ; and the stubble turned under anti
sown to buckwheat, which yielded 341 bushels;
and then theground was sown to clover and timothy,
which gave as a first crop 2, 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 clover since it was mowed, and turned in
Mr. Wilson's growing crops, and the wheat stub
ble of the present 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, that we stopped to inquire of the hire,:
man how it was produced. We found that the land
had. been 'tbe 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 plard,d
"Yes, but you manured high, we suppose ?" we
said.interrogatively, siteirgot this replyl--- .
"Waal, you see, we couldn't a done tact; 'cause
we hadn t.litit forty orte4orse loads altogethsr, fer
23 acres, and we wanted tlm most on't for the trttek.
The truck consisted of beets,, carrots, cabbage,
cucumbers, melons, &c., and a very productive patch
of Lima beans, grown fur marketing. So we were
satisfied that the soil was not even unaided
by clover, which had fedt he join, becausethe 'truck
patch” had not been . in cultivatkn long enough to
obliterate all signs of the forest.
Our next visit was to the large farm of Andrew
Sharp. five Miles - nOrth of Millville, from halr:to a
mile east of the railroad, and just about in the cen
tre of Vineland. Mr. Sharp commenced work her

Considerable part of the land was cleared for the
plow at Van acre, and on sonic of it the first crop
was buckwheat., limed with 50 bushels in powder

and yields 20 to 30 bushels per acre, harvested in
November; when the land being sowed with 15011,8

ryestubble turned, after knocking off a large growth
of oak sprouts, and dressed again with guano and

runs the estimate.
Part of the land was planted with potatoes for a

with wheat. and clover, yielded and average of over
