afford tbc.utmoft plcalurc
JO every goc^ citizen, to be inform-
ed that |he coftoo manufactory lately
f^n-^Kitdiy 11^ this city is in a very
Mourifhing conation. Many of our
patriotic, citizens are cloathing them-
felves with the jeans made by it.
^ In the courle of a few years, the
!»different1warcs made from cotton may
t^ply the ule of woollens, which,
from the infancy of our country, and
the prefent ftate of its cultivation, can
not be procured in a fulBcient quanti-
ty ttfeclothc all our inhabitants. Cot
ton enough may be raifed in -the
(cufticrn ftates, to clothe not only
every citizen in America, but half the
inhabitants of Earbpe. It is much to
be wilhed that machines for carding
and (pinning cotton, limilar to thole
now ^at woik in Philadelphia, were
•eftablilhed in all our country towns
and village*. Germantown, in par
ticular, (hould take the lead in this
hulinefs. That town has been famous
for the manufaduring of faddles,
ftockings, and carriages.—It will be
ncr own fault, if (lie is not celebrated
as much as formerly for her (kill and
fuccels in the manufa^fory of jeans,
fuftians, velvets, velvercts, corduroys!
and even mullins.
* It appears from experiment, made
forqierly in this ftate, that a bulhel of
fun-flower feeds yields a gallon of oil.
and that an acre of ground planted
with the feed, at three feet apart, will
yield between forty and fifty buihels
of the^feed. This oil is as mild as
fweet oil, and is equally agreeable with
it in (allads, and as a medicine. It
.may moreover be ufed to advantage in
paints, varnifhes and ointments. From
its being manufaflitred in our country
it may always be procured and ufed
m afrelh (fate.—The oil is prefled
from the feed in the fame manner as
cold drawn linfeed oil is obtained
from flaxleed, and with as little trou
ble.—Sweet olive oil fells for fix (hil
lings a quart. Should the" oil of the
fun-flower fell for only two thirds of
that price, the produft of an ’acre of
ground, fuppofing it to yield only forty
bulhels of the feed, will be^. 32, a
fum far bCTond the produa: of an
acre of ground in any kind of grain.
The feed is raifed with little trouble,
and grows in lands of moderate ferti-
fity. It may be gathered and (helled,
fit for the extraflion of the oil, by
women and children, ^
