(JThis numbercommences ihejifth
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 tfie prospect is not suffi
cientiy encouraging to justify their
increase. We are desirous to im
prove our paper, and will embrace thuithe session past, and the highly pleasing
first favorable opportunity tcr so doing examination ol his pupils, the I rustces

of Mr. Geoiige Stokes. From the
many testimonials procured by Mr.
Stokes from Trinity College (Dublin,)
and from distinguished citizens both of
Ireland and the United States, but more
especially from an acquaintance with
his school, and method of teaching for
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 effi-ct. We have made a
favorable alteration in our terms of pub

of hastening children too rapidly in their

Tract of hand
HPIIE 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 reclaimabJe.
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, cotton, 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 dwelling
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
are respeetfully invited to view the pre
mises, as I am sure thy 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.
