Valuable liawiVs uwvl iMAWs
THE subscribers will sell the following Valu
able Lands, belonging to the estate of the
late Lewis Ueard:
That valuable plantation, commonly called
" IJeard's Mills," situated on both sides of Swear
ing Creek, near where it enters into the Yadkin
river, and in that part of Rowan county called
the Jersey Settlement,- the number of acres in
the body is abc it 2500, but it will be divided, if
required by purchasers. 1 he product ot cotton
from this plantation, for several years past, has
exceeded 110 bales, besides proportionate crops
of corn and small grain. Attached to the prem
ises is a valuable set of wheat and corn Mills,
and a Saw-Mill ; one Cotton Gin, by water, and
another excellent one by horse power, with a
new and prime packing screw. Also, a good
dwelling-house, with a store-room attached an
extensive distillery, with all the necessary imple
ments. In short, there is not a more complete
and desirable establishment in the western part
of Ihe state for a man of capital, who wishes to
turn his attention to cotton and the other staples
of the country. From its situation in a rich
cotton-raising settlement, it is aljo known to be
one of the best stands in the country for the
mercantile business. It is deemed unnecessary
to give any further description, as persons wish
ing to purchase will view the premises and learn
Another Tract, of about 150 acres, situated on
both sides of the Yadkin River, on one of the
main roads leading from Salisbury to Fayette
ville. To this tract belongs the Ferry commonly
called " Skeen's Ferry."
Another parcel, of about 1200 acres, situated
about four and five miles from Salisbury, inclu
ding Dunn's Mountain.
A small tract, of 75 or 80 acres, situated on
the South River.
About 900 acres, lying in Montgomery county,
not far below Stokes's Ferry.
Any part of about 7000 acres, commonly call

out of this tract, to suit persons wishing to
Another parcel, ot about 1000 acres, on the
waters of Muddy Creek, in the county of Iiurke.
On this land is situated one of the most eligible
unoccupied seats for an Iron-Works in the state
of North-Carolina. It has an abundance of wa
ter that can be applied to machinery with a very
small expense, owing to the fine fall of the creek.
It is also within a reasonable distance ot a rich
supply of Iron-Ore, that will be sold with the site.
Persons disposed to purchase any o the fore
going lands, may learn terms and particulars by
applying, in person or bv letter, to either of the
subscribers, which will be punctually attended
to. MOSES A. LOCKE,

"S HOKE JAIL on the night of the 17th in
stant, a white man and two negroes. The
white man is by the name of John Prince, said
to have come from Grayson county, Virginia, who
was confined on a charge of counterfeiting mon
ey ; he is about 35 years of age, dark complex
ion, about five feet ten inches high. One of the
negroes says he came from Charleston, S. C. and
that his name is Bill, and is a runaway; he is a
trim built fellow, cf a middle size and age, has
been cropped, or lost a piece of one ear, I think
the right car : The other is of a yellow com
plexion, heavy built, thick lips", and a small scar
on his under lip, supposed to be about 35 years
of age, says his name is Owen, and is a runaway
from the state of Georgia. It is thought by
some that Prince will pass for their master, and
perhaps sell them.
Any person that will apprehend them, and
confine them in any jail, or bring them so that I
get them again, shall receive the above reward,
and all reasonable expenses ; or 10 dollars for
each or cither of them.

Wc copy the following just icproof
from the National Gazette. It is the first
time that this topic has been, in any shape,
introduced into our columns, conceiving
as we do, that the establishment of eti
quette between the foreign ministers is a
matter that wc have no right to interfere
with : etiquette is a primary point in Eu
ropean courts, and it is both unjust and
unreasonable that we should, in our pub
lic prints, ridicule the representatives of
friendly foreign powers, sojourning at the
seat of government, for the practice of it.
On the score of courtesy alone wc ought
to stand neuter. No one will deny that
the republicans of the new world are
as virtuous and as highminded as the roy
alists of the old ; then there can be noth
ing incompatible with our national char
acter, in being equallyjof. 11 ash. (laz.
" The most vulgar account which we
have yet seen, of the feud alledgecl to
have taken place between the French
and English ministers at Washington,
is contained in a letter to be found in
the Richmond Knquirer of the 1st inst.
The French minister is called Mon
sieur Parezvous ; the English, IVIon
sieur Goddam and J 'ohn Bull ; the Swe
dish, Monsieur dc Swede, c. The
whole narrative has a character accor
dant with those choice and witty de
signations, and must have been receiv
ed with infinite glee in the night-cellars
and stable-yards of V , for
which, we presume, it was intended.
The American Secretary of State is
introduced into this most facetious
" liroad Grin," with strokes about the
cession of Texas, Sec. which shew the
design of blending the grave with the
gay, seria jocis of making him more
44 The caricature is so coarse that the
editor of the Enquirer appears to
have felt some small degree of shame,
in introducing it into his columns. He
states that he himself certainly would
not have selected in every case, the
forms of expression which his corres
pondent has used for conveying his
ideas. But a man of any refinement
of taste and habits, would have refus
ed to convey to the public such forms
of expression ; and would disdain
waggery so forced and low as that, for
example, which marks the following
' J'uta Jiene. Etiquette this morning says the
gentlemen cannot go out, until further advices ;
but their attaches (which they tell me, means
tails) may probably " take a bout." Did you
ever know foreign ministers were like electric
eels, to fight with their tails ? But that is the
etiquette to-day, and whether it is anew edition
cf the Secretary of State's work on that subject,
I have not learned : when I Jo I will write to y ou
Though the two ambassadors in
question should have been betrayed by
pique and misapprehension, into high
words or menacing gestures in the hall
of the President's mansion, the Ame
rican writer or editor should not so
forget his own pretensions to the cha
racter of a gentleman, nor what would
be still due to their quality of stran
gers, and their official station, as to
publish on tbi occasion pasquinades
in a style of buffoonery which is no
longer tolerated even in the farce of
the .London stage, and has been for
some time cast olf and consigned to the
jack puddings of the country fairs.
Some light and chastened pleasantry,
some good natured raillery, in our
newspapers, at the expense of foreign
ministers, when they commit an open
indiscretion of the kind alledged, might
not be amiss, as it would serve to pun
ish the irregularity in the adequate ex
tent, and to render them more watch
ful for the future.
44 The accounts which have been
printed of the altercation are, no doubt,
overcharged, and in some particulars
fictitious, and at all events there is no
thing very extraordinary or grievous
in the circumstance, of two representa
tivesof rival and monarchical countries,
jealous of the dignity of their princi
pals, and of their personal considera
tion, misconceiving each other, and be
ing surprised into a momentary resent
ment and expostulation, in a juncture
of peculiar ceremony. Both, in this
instance, are men whose general de
portment and private character entitle
them to the highest respect. The am
bassador of France, Mr. de Neuville,
is a most estimable person, ot a gener
ous and manly temper, for whom all
who know him well must, we think,
entertain a lively regard, it is not
certainly from Washington that he
ought to be held up to ridicule ; and it
is still less at Richmond, the scene of
the recent most scandalous contention
between the Governor and Council, in
which the lie was directly and furious
ly given in print that the dispute
or discomposure of the ambassadors
should be treated as a subject of so
much wonder and derision."
Among the visitors recently at Wash
ington were a party of Indians, from the
remote regions of the Upper Missouri
country, under the direction and care of
Major O'Fallon. They are fine, stout
looking men ; but at the same time have
more striking features of the savage about
them, than any I have ever seen. I un
derstand they represent several tribes ;
none of which have ever before had an
opportunity to witness the fruits of civil
ization. They visited Congress hall
while the house w as in session ; and al
though they disdained to betray any emo
tion, they afterwards acknowledged they
were astonished at the interior of that
spacious and splendid apartment. They
say, if they were to live thirty years after
their return, they could not relate to their
countrymen all the wonders they have
seen. They have not yet, however, seen
all. The secretary of war has sent them
on to visit the cities of Baltimore, Phila
delphia, and New-York ; at. which last
place it is intended to send them on bourd
one of our seventy-fours, where they
will be received with a national salute.-
Such a visit, and such a reception, must
make a lasting impression on those sim
ple sons of the forest; and dispose them
to entertain a profound respect for their
great Father, the President.
Professional Anecdote of Dr. Fra?dclin.
When he came to Philadelphia in
1713, he was first employed by one
Keimer, a printer, a visionary whose
mind was frequently elevated above
the little concerns of life, and conse
quently veryr s abject to mistakes, which
he seldom took the pains to correct.
Franklin had frequently reasoned with
him upon the importance of accuracy
in his profession, but in vain. His
fertile head, however, soon furnished
him with an opportunity to second his
arguments by proof. They soon after
undertook the impression of a primer,
which had lately' been published in
New England. Franklin looked over
the piece, and when his master had set
the following couplet
"When the last trumpet soundeth,
We shall not all die ;
But we shall all be changed
In the twinkling of an eye.
IJe privately removed the letter c, and
it was worked off
"When the last trumpet soundeth,
We shall not all die ;
But we shall all be hanged
In the twinkling of an eye.

Some years ago, Capt. of schr.
while at one of the West India
Islands, received the following order
among others, from his owner : 44 I
want you to git me too monkeys for a
particular purpose Don't fail." In
consequence of the word being mispel
led, and the r not being crossed, the
captain put himself to great expense,
and considerably prolonged the voyage
to accomplish the order in the sense
he gave it. 44 Where have you been
so long ?" said the anxious owner, on
his return. 44 Looking for your d n'd
monkeys," said the enraged captain,
4t and with ali my pains, I have been
able to get but sixty out of the 100."
Sixty Monkeys ! exclaimed the owner,
why I only sent for tivo." 44 Here
is your order for them, sir," replied
the captain, coolly pulling out the let
ter. It is a fact known to but few, that celery seed
in the quantity of a dessert spoonful to a gallon,
ooiled in soup of any kind, gives to it a richness
of flavor that is no other way to be had, and has
this advantage over the celery itself, that it is to
be had at all seasons and at a much less price.
