into Farms of different sizes to suit the purchaser—

of from slti to $2O per acre 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 'neat, Gran and Potaloce—also a dark and
rich sandy loam, suitable for corn, sweet-potatoes,
tobacco, all kinds of vegetables and root crops, and
the finest. varieties of frnit, such as Grapes, Pears,
Peaches, Apricots, Nectarines, Blackberries, Melons
and other fruits, best adopted to the Philadelphia
and New York Markets. . In respect to the soil and
crops there can he no mistake, as visitors can exam

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.,,er the
New York Tribune, and the well-known agriyulturist,
William Parry, of Cinnaminson, New Jersey, which
will be furnished inquirers.]
The Market.---By looking over a map the reader
will perceive that it enjoys the best market in the Un
ion, and has direct cotnmunication with New York
and Philadelphia twice a day, 1.• ling only thirty-two
miles from the latter. Produce E this market brings
double the price that it does in locations distant.
from the cit ies. 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 be 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
railroad, of all the great cities of New England and
the Middle 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 lie 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 benefttted 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 fevers are unknown.
Conveniences at //and.—Building material is plen
ty. Fish and oysters are plenty and cheap.
Visitors must expect, however, to see a new place.
Why the Properly has not been Settled Before 7—
This question the reader naturally asks. It is be
cause it has been held in large tracts by families not
dispOsed to sell, and being wu hout railroad facilities
they had few inducements. The Railroad has just
been opened through the property this season, for
the first time.
Visitors arc 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

Cause of Fertility—Antonia of Erops rarodneed---
It is certainly one of the moat rater ire fertile trees,.
in an almost level position, anti switebk ecoolitiem for
pleasant farming that we know of this side of the west
ern prairies. We foundsomeof the oldest farms appar
ently just as profitable productive es when first mcara
of forest fifty or a hundred years ago.
The geologist would soon discover the eauae 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 at
indurated calcareous marl, showing many distinct
forms of ancient shells, or the tertiary formation
and this manly substance is scattered all through the
soil, in a very comminuted form, 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 -.Prance and Oernu.ny a mart
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 tEe cause, they
will not be excited with wonder at seeing indubitable
evidence of fertility in a soil which in other sit tie
tions, having the same general characteristics or at
least appearances, is entirely unrenumerative except.
ae its productiveness is promoted by artificial fertil
t :'ew worsts about, the quality and value of this
lanu for cultivation, of which we have some strong
Our first visit. was to William D. Wilson, Franklin
township, Gloucester county, who purchased somo
eight miles north ofile. about 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
he built a branch track a mile and a half long. Ile
also furnished sixteen miles of the road with ties,
and has no doubt made the mill profitable, though
his main object was to open a farm, having become
convinced that. the soil was valuable for cultivation.
In this he has not been disappointed, as some of his
crops prove. For instance, last year, the second
time of cropping. 806 bushels of potatoes on one
acre, worth 60 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,
plowed 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 Sh bushels ;
and then theground was sown to olover and timothy,
which gave as a first 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 git
ano; then 50 bushels of slaked lime has been spread
upon the clover since it was mowed, and turned in
Mr. Wilson's growing orops, 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 flue appearance of a
field of corn, that we stopped to inquire of the hit
man how it was produced. We found that the laud
had been the year but one before in wheat, sewn
with clover, and this out one season, and last spring
plowed once, with one •poor old nag," and planted
but. you Immured high, we suppose!" we
said interrogatively, and got Ibis reply :
"Waal, you see, we couldn't. a done that ; 'cause
we hadn't hut forty one-horse loads altogether, for
23 acres, and we wanted the moat on't for the treck.
The trubk 'Conitisted of beets, carrots, cabbage,
cucumbers; melons, B:c., and a very productive patch
of lima beans, grown for marketing. So we were
satisfied that the soil was not ilfertile, even unaided
by clover, which had fed the Cl3lll, becausetbe 'truck
patch" bad 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 half to a
mile east of the railroad, and just about in the cen
tre of Vineland. Mr. Sharp commenced work hers
in December. 1858, upon 270 acres. In less than
three years. he has . got 234 acres cleared and in
crops this season, as well-inolotted and divided into,
several fields, with cellar rail or pole fence ; has.
built a two-story dwelling, aboUt 36 by 90 feet, and
a smaller house for farm laborers, and a stable and
granary and some other out buildings.
Considerable part of the land was cleared for the
plow at sii tut acre. and on some of it the first crop
was buckwheat, limed with 50 bushels in powder
per acre. This crop maybe put in July 4th to 20th,,
and yields 20 to ill.) bushels per acre, harvested in,
November; when the land being sowed with falba
of Peruvian guano and seeded with rye, yielded 12
to 15 bushels per acre and $lO worth of straw. The
rye'stubble turned, after knocking off a large growth
of oak sprouts. and dressed again with guano and
seeded to wheat, gave 111 or 10 bushels. The crop
which he was threshing while we were there promi

year with a mowing machine, and we will gual antes
two tons per acre, if he will give the orerple's if , averho
runs the estimate.
Part of the land was planted with potatoes for at
first crop, which yielded 120 bushels per acre. It
was then limed with 50 bushels per acre, and seeded;
with wheat and clover, yielded and average of over
-15 bushels per acre, end the clover now looks beaw
Other portions have been planted with corn as a.
first r erop. which yielded 80 bushels at yellow •f_int,
corn, and the second erop 40 bushels, and the third
crop, treated to lfiblbs. of guano, we are sure no
one would eatimitte below 40 bushels per acme.
[The reader will recollect that the writer , is now
speaking of land pc-deo/41y new, and wridela can,
scarcely be considered in good -arable condition
In other cases, the corn crop , of last year was fol
lowed with oats this season, not yet threshed. bum
will average probably 40 to LO bushels. Sweet pus.,
tatoes, beans, melons, and, in fast, all garden veg
etables. as well as young peach and oilier fruit,
trees planted this year show very plainly that thik
long-neglected tract of land should remain so no,
