We mnke no complaint against the National au thorities for we believe all is done that can be done, for the comfort of the soldiers. No other nation has ever had such large armies to pay and clothe. We have only stated what we believe to be the plain fact, to draw the attention of our liberal peo rig et home to this matter. The personal appeals of soldiers' wives to us, to any something or do some thing for them, we dared not evade. The citizens Cnii attend to this matter, and it is they who ought to do it. Let the means be collected and given out i n a systematic manner. It should be a general af fair of the whole town and the whole township.— Heretofore the whole burden has been borne by the business men and a few generous and noble people who could not hesitate to do what they saw was so necessary It need not be urged that the county fund is enough, it provides but, a ,modieutri‘--it is insvfficient. Form a society, such as was organized during "the three months service," when there was not a tenth as much needed as there is now.— We cannot be unmindful of the pressing need, uor eau we be honest people if we let the soldiers' fam ilies suffer by refusing or neglecting to perform our plain duty.

Sub scriptions to these Bonds arc received in tiiiited States notes or notes of National Banks. They are TO BE REDEEMED IN COIN, at the pleasure of the Government, at any period not less Man ten nor more than forty years from their date, and until their redemption FIVE PER CENT. INTEREST WILL BE PAID IN COIN, on Bonds of not over one hun dred dollars annually and on all other Bonds semi annually. The interest is payable on the first days of March and September in each year. Subscribers will receive either Registered or Cou pon Bonds, as they may prefer. Begistered Bonds are recorded on the books of the U. S. Treasurer, and can be transferred only on the owner's order. Coupon Bonds are payable to hearer, and arc more convenient for commercial uses. Subscribers to this loan will have the option of having their Bonds draw interest from March Ist, by paying the accrued interest in coin—(or in Uni ted States notes, or the notes of National Batas, adding fifty per cent. for premium,) or receive them drawing interest from the date of subscription and deposit. As these Bonds are . Exempt from State or Municipal Taxation, their value is increased from one to three per cent. per annum, according to the rate of tax levies in various parts of the country. t the present rate qf premium on gold they pay OVER EIGHT PER CENT. INTEREST in currency, and are of equal convenience iis a per mancnt or temporary investment. It is believed that. no securities offer so great in ducements to lenders as the various descriptions of U. S. Bonds. In all other forms of indebtedness, the faith or abillty of private parties or stock corn panics or separate communities only is pledged for payment, while for the debts of the United Slates the whole property of the country is holden to se cure the payment of both principal and interest in 030 These Bonds may be suhscritied for in sums from $5O up to any magnitude, on the same terms, and are thus made equally available to the smallest lender and the largest' capitalist. They can be con verted into money at any moment, and the holder will have the benefit of the interest.. It may be useful to state in this connection that the total Funded Debt. of the United States on which interest is payable in geld. on the 3d day of March: 1864. was $768,975,1100. The interest on this debt for the coming fiscal year will he $15.037,126, while the customs revenue in gold for the current fiscal year, ending J tine not h, 1804, has been so far at. the rate of over $100,000,000 per annum. It will be seen that. even the present gold reven ues of the Government are largely in excess of the wants of tike Treasury for the payment of gold in terest, while the recent increase of the tariff will i doubtless raise the annual receipts from customs on the same amount of importation', to $150,000,- 000 per annum. Instructions to the National Banks acting as loan agents were not issued from the United States Treasury until March 26, but in the first three weeks of April the subscriptions averaged more than TEN MILLIONS A WEEK.

A Rare Opportunity in the Best Market, and Most De lightful and Healthful Clithate in the Union. Only thirty miles South of Philadelphia, on a Railroad ; briny a Rich, _Heavy Soil, and Highly Productive Wheal Land; Amongst the Best in the Garden State qt . New Jersey. It consists of 20,000 acres of 0001) land, dixiied into Farms of different sizes to suit, the purchaser— FROM 21.) ACRES AND UPWARDS — and is sold at the rate of from $l5 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 Wheat, Grass and Potatoes—also a dark and rich sandy loam, suitable for corn. sweet-potatoes, tobacco, all kinds of vegetables anti root crops, and the finest varieties of fruit, such as Grapes, Pears, Peaches, Apricots, Nectarines, Blackberries, Melons and other fruits, best adapted 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 buy beford 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 th k e. 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 Market.---By looking over a map the reader will perceive that. it enjoys Me hist market in the Un ion, and has direct communication with New York and Philadelphia twice a day, king only thirty-two miles from thelatter. Produce[;' this market brings double the price that it does in locations distant front 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, hut 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 anti the Middle States. Ile is near his old friends and associations. lie 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 benetitted 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 arc unknown. Conven;enees at hand.—Building material is plen ty. Fish end oysters are plenty and cheap. Visitors must expect, however, to see a new place. Why the Property has not been Settled Before?— This question the render naturally asks. It is be cause it has been held in large tracts by families not disposed to sell, and being without railroad facilities they had 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 tune 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 snore than wages in improving it, and when it is done it is a certain in, dependence and no 1369. A few acres in fruit. trees will insure a comfortable living. The land is put down to hard-times, and all improvements can be made at a cheaper rate than most any other time. The whole tract, with sic miles front on the rail road, is being laid out with fine and spacious aven ues, with s town in the centre—five acre lots in the town seti from $l5O to$200; two and a-half acre lots, at front $BO to $l2O, and town lots 50 feet front by 150 feet deep, at s . loo—payable one-half eash 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 lies a' large population, which affords a good market. This settlement., in the course of several years, will be one of the most beautiful places in the coun try, and most agreeable for 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 he introduced which will insure the prosperty of the 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.

A few words about the qualily and value of this lam, for cultivation, of which we have some strong proof. Our first visit was to William D. Wilson, Franklin township, Gloucester county, who purchased some eight miles north of Millville, 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 wt 11 as the firewood and coal, for which he built a branch track a mile and a half long. He 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 instence, last year, the second, titre of cropping. 306 bushels of potatoes on one acre, worth ell 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 dug, and wheat sown. and yield ed 16 bushels; and the stubble turned under and sown to buckwheat, which yielded 38q- bushels; and'then the ground was sown to clover 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 gu ano ; then 50 bushels of slaked lime has been spread. upon the clover since it was mowed, and turned in for wheat. 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 tine appearance of a field of corn, that we stopped to inquire of the hires 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, fer 23 acres, and we wanted the most on't for the truck. The truck consisted of beets, carrots, cabbage, cucumbers, melons, &c., and /I very productive patch of Lima beans, grown for marketing. So we were satisfied that the soil was not infertile, even unaided by clover, which had fed the cern, because the "truck patch" bad not. been in oultivatima long enough to obliterate all signs of the forest. Our next visit. was to the large farm of Andrew Sharp, five miles north of iFflllville, from half to a mile east of the railroad, and just about in the cen tre of 'Vineland. Mr. Sharp commenced work here in December. 1858, upon 270 acres. In less than three years. be has got. 234 acres cleared and in crops this season, as well inclosed and divided into several fields, with cedar rail or pole fence ; has built a two-story dwelling. about 36 by 40 feet, and a smaller house for farm laborers, and a steble and granary and some other outbuildings, Considerable part of the sand was elattred for the plow at $0 an acre, and on some of it the first crop was buckwheat, limed with 50 bushels in powder per acre. Thieerop maybe put in July 4th to 20th, and yields 20 to 30 bushels per sere, harvested in November; when the land being sowed with 150Ibs of Peruvian guano and seeded whh rye, yielded 12 to 15 bushels per acre and $lO worth of straw. The ryetetubble turned. after knocking off a large growth of oak sprouts, and dressed again with guano and seeded to wheat, gave 15 or 16 bushels. The crop which he was threshing While we were there promi ses more, of a very plump grain, end the straw is very heavy.
