Tract of Land
PffHE Subscriber having determined
to remove to the South, offers his
TUACT OF LAND, lying on Rockv
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 reclaimable.
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 county. 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 a good as can be had
any where. Those wishing to purchase
are respeetfuljy 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.
