(jpThis mimbercommences the fiflh
volume of the Free Press, the third
since its location in Tarborough. At
the conclusion of the third volume we ex
pressed a hope, that we should be ena
bled on commencing the fifth volume,
to present the Free Press to its patrons
in an enlarged and improved form; but
we regret to state, that the "signs of the
times" in our pecuniary horizon indi
cate very plainly, that an increase of ex
penditure in any business would be very
imprudent at the present time, especial
ly where an adequate return is merely
problematical. Our expences at present
are as much as we conveniently can
manage, and the prospect is not suffi
ciently encouraging to justify their
increase. We are desirous to im
prove our paper, and will embrace the
first favorable opportunity for so doing
that presents itself; until then we must
beg the indulgence of its patrons. It
will be recollected, that there is no ne
cessity for a new subscription on the
commencement of each volume, for
those who are desirous to continue their
support to the Free Press those who
wish to discontinue will please give us
notice to that effect. We have made a
favorable alteration in our terms of pub
lication, extending the time of the mid
dle payment until the end of the sub
scription year if the first payment is
made within a few weeks of the com
mencement of the year, it will be con
sidered in advance. The terms, as mo
dified, are as follows:

Tract of Land
nnllE Subscriber having determined
to remove to the South, offers his
TRACT OF LAND, lying on Rocky
Swamp in Halifax county, sixteen miles
from Halifax town, containing seven
hundred and four acres, for sale. One
third of the above land is alluvion, infe
rior to none in the county, partly re
claimed and the balance rcclaimable.
The reclaimed portion has produced the
rise of ten barrels of corn to the acre;
it is now in corn and cotton and is very
luxuriant, promising as large a crop as
it ever produced.
The upland is very fertile, containing
a variety of soils, adapted to the growth
of tobacco, colton, corn, wheat, rye and
oats; it is one of the best stock ranges in
this section of country. It has on it one
of the very best selected apple orchards,
appended to which is a first rate still
and apple mill, a comfortable dvvelling
house, with six airy rooms, a kitchen
and laundry, and other out houses.
What recommends it to the lower coun
try farmer, is its extreme healthiness.
The society is as good as can be had
any where. Those wishing to purchase
arc respectfully invited to view the pre
mises, as I am sure they will be better
pleased from a sight, than a description
of it. The above land will be sold ac
cording to the times. A credit can be
had on a part of the sum agreed on.
