It is nothing lo be a soldier ; a diver,

An appaline shipwreck occurred, not
long ago, upon the wildest part of the
coast of Newfoundland. .The tidings of
this calamity reached the ears of thou
sands; but, amid tbe crowd of accidents
which followed in quick succession, it was
soon forgotten. Not by us, however.

In offering this FERTILIZER to the Agricultural Community a Second Season we do so
with the utmost Confidence, feeling satisfied that the high opinion, we formed, and expressed
last season based on its Chemical Constituents have been most satisfactorily borne out by the
iesi, oy wnicn an remmzers must be judged, that of the Plantation.
Last season, owing to the lateness at which we commenced importing we were forced to put
our Guano on the market at once, but now having continued oar importations during the sum
mer and fall, and having large and well ventilated Warehouses in this City and City Point, we
are enabled to put our Guano on the market, in a condition as to dryness, and freedom from
lumps, equal to any Manufactured Fertilizer.
We solicit a careful peraual of our Circular containing the certificates sent us, and which can
beliad on application at this OFFICE, or from any of oar AGENTS. Having nothing to con
ceal, we made an innovation on established usage, by publishing those letters received unfavora
ble to our Guano, but careful inquiry in many cases proves that the cause of its failure was not
owing to any fault in the Guano, but to those far beyond our control- We have frequently
heard the same complaints of its kindred Fertilizer, Peruvian Guano, but the concurrent testi
mony of well known Farmers and Planters from Maryland to the extreme Western counties of
North Carolina, justify us in claiming a place for our Fertilizer Superior to many, and Second
to iNone.
We confidently expect the continued patronasre of the Aarricultural Community and no exer
