The subscriber offers for sale, two thousand acres of Land, lying on the south side of Trent River, adjoining the Plantation of John STANLY, Esq.-binding on the river one and a half miles, and only twelve miles from Newbern. There are three hundred and fifty, or four hundred thousand cleared land under excellent fence-a large dwelling House in good repair, and out Houses; the light wood has not been worked off for twenty five years; also twenty thousand boxes two years old. No place perhaps in the district of Newbern, affords better range for Cattle, sheep and hogs. As I am determined to move, those who may want Land have an opportunity of a great bargain.
