Tor publishing weekly in the City of Raleigh
an Agricultural Neivspaper,under Urn name
and style of the
Farmers 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
his spieces." Dr. Johnson.
HHHIS Agricultural paper, will be modelled af
ter one conducted in France 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.7' 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

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 farminsr and nlantinsr 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
oouin. rrom them he will receive communica
tions of great value, detailing the "modus ope
randi" of their manasement.
The "Half Sheet" will be issued as soon as a
Specified number Ot subscribers nrp nht.-iinpd
Postmasters and others to whom suuhserintion
hsts 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.
The Editor at present resides in an adjacent
State, but will be in Haleigh about the first of
January proximo. My ER RICHARDS.
TN order that I may pay my creditors, as well
as to receive pay from my debtors, I will now
give fa,r notice, that all persons indebted to me
either by note or account, will please to make
settlement by the 1st of January next. Baled
or seeded Co.ton will be taken in payment at ihe
cash prices until that time, after which nothin
will be received but cash, and it must come a

hope those who will not avail themselves of this
