For publishing weekly in the City of Raleigh
an Agricultural Newspaper, under the name
and style of the
Farmer's and Planter's Half Sheet.
Our motto is, "Agriculture is the great art which
cverr proprietor of land ought to practise; every
statesman to patronise, and every individual of the
human family to consider as the chief employment of
hisspieces." Dr. Johnson.
''PHIS Agricultural paper, will be modelled af-
ter one conducted in t ranee with eminent
success, by the Count Lasteyrie, (Lafayette's
son-in-law) and another in England by an asso
ciation of gentlemen, styled "The Farmer's
Weekly Visitor." They are both Half Sheets.
The object of so curtailing the dimensions, is to
prevent that ennui and fatigue, always produced
by too great a bulk of intellectual matter. We
will not say a word in regard to the great ne
cessity of improving our agriculture, that is ad
mitted; but it is of great importance, that im
provements now confined to particular neighbor
hoods, should be more generally known, and we
propose, as it were through a speaking trump, to
proclaim them through all the land. In addition
we hope to publish a paper into the columns of
which, the agricultural citizen, heated and vex
ed in the dust and whirlwind of the great high
road of "general politics," may turn as to a par
terre, gay with flowers and adorned with refresh
ing fountains. , Not one word of politics shall
enter the columns of our exclusively agricul
There are a few other papers of an Agricultural
type, published in the United States, but they
are too local in their nature and do not sufficient
ly discuss those "matters and things," which ap
pertain to our farming and planting interests
The Editor himself, has been a practical cultiva
tor of all the staples of the South, and he has the
promised co-operation of many of the most weal
thy and extensive Planters and Farmers of the
South. From them he will receive communica
tions of great value, detailing the "modus ope
randi" of their management;
The "Half Sheet" will be issued as soon as a
specified number of subscribers are obtained.
Postmasters and others to whom suubscription
lists are, and will be sent, will be allowed the
usual commissions upon collections.
The terms of the "Half Sheet" will be ONE
DOLLAR ALWAYS in advance.

State, but will be in Raleigh about the first of
January proximo. OLIVER RICHARDS.

Constables Blanks for Sale,
UNCOMMON LAW CASE.
P. versus P. The defendant war ar
rested in the city of New York, at the
suit of the plaintiff. Hoth parties vvero
Uritish subjects, and the seduction took
place in England; the defendant came tr
this State and continued his intercourse
with the daughter of the plaintiff here
The defendant was held to bail in 850,000.
and now moved to the discharge from the
arrest, on the ground that the courts of
this btate could not take cognizance of
actions for torts committed without its
jurisdiction, and between aliens. The
court denied the motion, without deter
mining the principle, on the ground that
the offence was continued after the defen
dant came within this State They also
refused to mitigate the bail, on account
of the peculiar circumstances of the case.
1 ho plaintiff is an English nobleman.
The defendant, his only son and heir at
law, upon whom is entailed an estate of
thirteen thousaud pounds per annum, and
the miserable deluded victim his own
sister. Albany (N. F.) Daily Adv.
The suit above mentioned is that of
Price versus Price, with which many of
our citizens are already acquainted. The
plaintiff is hir lloland Price, an English
baronet. There are two sides to the sto
ry, and until a full investigation shall
have taken place, we feel justified in pre
suming that the one is as liable to bo
true as the other, notwithstanding this
decision of the court, which, it must bd
remembered, has been predicated upom
cx parte evidence merely. The other
version of the story is, that this prosecu
tion is a means resorted to by the plain
tiff to annul the marriage of his son with
a female beneath the rank of his family1;
and that the defendant married her un
der a full belief by both a belief which
still continues that no such relationship
as the one charged existed between them.
What gives probability to the statement
is, that in the edition of Debret's Peer
age, published since the defendant's ar
rest, this lady is named as one of the
daughters of the plaintiff, whereas, intho
edition previous, her name is not inclu
ded among them. A painful mystery
hangs over the transaction, which the)
truly amiable gentleman who is the sub
ject of the prosecutions-incarcerated asi
he is, among strangers, and held to bail
in an enormous sum at the suit of a pow
erful adversary -has not the means ot
elucidating. At all events, until the guilt
of the defendant shall have been proved.
we can do no less than deprecate the in
jurious impressions liable to be produced
on the public mind by the terms in which
the above report is couched. N. Y. Cote
Indian Treaty. The Memphis (Ten
nessee) Times of the 17th ult5lay$:
We suppose that nothing in the ranire of
the Times will afford more gratification
to our readers, than the information that
has recently reached this place from the
Chickasaw nation. When our informant
left, the Commissioner on the part of the
United fctates had succeeded in adiustinir
all the essential heads of a Treaty with
that nation; and it only waited the ar
rangement of a few unimportant points
for its complete ratification on both sides
So far as we have heard of the details af
the Treaty, they are these: The Indiana
are to offer all their lands for sale, to the
whites, with the exception of a million
and a halt ot acres, which they will hold
possession of as a home until they make
satisfactory arrangements for settling oil
the other side of the Mississippi. The
expense of surveying and selling their
lands will be incurred by themselves,
while they will receive the nett proceeds
of the sales. We hope that ere long we
shall have the pleasing task to perform,
of giving the full treaty to our reader.
