-'STIIE subscriber lias determined on removing
lL to the state of Tennessee, and wishes to
s.;ll his landed estate, viz : The plantation where
on he now lives, containing 240 acres, situated
5 miles from Salisbury, on the main road lead
ing from the latter place to Charlotte, York,
Chester, Augusta and Milledgeville. This is the
most direct road from the North through the
central part of this state to the South ; and
there is no road in this state more travelled.
There is a comfortable dwelling-house with a
number of rooms, three out-houses for negroes,
one loom-house, barn, stables, cribs, &c. all in
good repair. The soil is excellent, and well
adapted to the culture of cotton, com, wheat,
oats, rye, and other grain. A suJlicient quantity
is cleared and under good fence to work six
hands to advantage. The situation of this tract
is well calculated for any public business : as a
house of entertainment it is well known for up
wards of thirty years. The local advantages for
a public station are great ; money could be made
here with but very little trouble.
One other tract, containing 205 acres, situated
one mile from the above place, on the same road,
having no buildings but one cabin ; 45 acres of
cleared land, and under good fence, well adapt
ed to the culture of any kind of grain. The
terms liberal ; two and three years, or more, if
required, with interest after twelve months. Any
gentleman who wishes to purchase or rent, will
do well to apply immediately, as I intend leaving
the premises in two months.

FROM THE nrssiAX AXTIIOLOC.r.
THE RICH AND THE POOR MAN. '
So goes the world ; if wealthy, you may call
This friend, That brother : friends and brothers
Though you arc worthless witless never mind
You may have been a stable-boy what then.?
'Tis wealth, good Sir, makes honorable men..
You seek respect, no doubt, and you will find it.
But if yon are poor, heaven help you ! though
Had royal blood within him, and though you
Possess the intellect of angels too,
'Tis all in vain ; the world will ne'er inquire
On such a score : Whj should it take the pains !
'Tis easier to weigh purses, sure, than brains.
I saw once a poor devil, keen and clever,
Witty and wise : he paid a man a visit,
And no one noticed him, and no one ever
Gave him a welcome. " Strange," cried I,
" whence is it ?"
He walked on this side, then on that,
He tried to introduce a social chat ;
Now here, now there, in vain he tried ;
Said bv their silence " Better stav at home."
A rich man burst the door,
As Crcrsus rich I'm sure,
He could not pride himself upon his wit
Nor wisdom for he had not got a bit :
He had what's better, he had wealth.
What a confusion ! all stand up erect
These crowd around to ask him his health ;
These bow in honest duty and respect ;
And these arrange a sofa or a chair,
And these conduct him there.
Allow me, Sir, the honor;" then a bow
Down to the earth Is't possible to show
Meet gratitude for such kind condescension ?
The poor man hung his head,
And to himself he said,
"This is indeed beyond my comprehension
Then looking round
One friendly face he found,
And said "Pray tell me why is wealth preferred
To wisdom r " " That's a silly question, friend !"
Replied the other " have you never heard,
A man may lend his store
Of gold or silver ore,
But wisdom none can borrow, none can lend ?"
