River. The entire swamp ha been successfully
drained of the large body of water by which it was
heretofore covered. The land is apparently level,
beiug free from ridges (which are so common to
swamp lauds generally) whilst there is an abundance
of fall, by wh'ch the rain water can be carried off i
by ordinary d.tches. A small' portion of the land
has been in cultivation about 7 years and those
. persons who have seen the crops, regard the land
as equal in fertility to any tney nave seen in in:s .
state or elsewhere. 1 he location is healthy, the '
neighborhood good, and the access to Fayetteville
and Wilmington easy by means of a good road 1
miles in length leadiiig-directly to the river. Besides
this, it is within 3 miles of a beautiful little village. ;
upon a high aud healthy Blulf, at , the river, with a i
More. Ware-house and first rate landing. All which f
ail'oid many conveniences to thtj neighborhood. mAs"
sevei al persons have spoken of purchasing, this" is
deemed a proper time to call.' their attention to the
subject, in as much as there is a crop now growing
upon a small portion ol the land, by which they can ''
judge of its production. .EReasoiiable terms will j

A few week since vfe alluded to the fret
that Wm. T. Sinitlisorif Esq., of this city, was
ibout to isue a book of sermons by twelve

proceeds of which were' to be appropriated
to the liquidation of a tlebt how clue by tho
Iethoclist Episcopal Gimrch South, in Wash-ino-ton.

Fat. The late news about theParis 'fash
ions' is somewhat startling.' Fat is tho
rage. Ladies cultivate it. They are de
vouring vast quantities of butter, mashed,
rose-leaves, and such like. The Empress is
quite corpulent, which accounts for the
st3'le. The fashion will be here before long.
We hail it with 'joy.' A new era is dawning.
Our girls will stop eating slate pencils and
chalk, and commence partaking, liberally
of roast beef and baked beans. They will
rise with the lark. They will exercise.
