MR. W. P. BURNE,
IS instructed by the . Proprietor to offef
to Public Com'petition, on FRIDAY', the 20th of January instant, at twelve o'clock, at the Royal Hotel, Twelve Allotments of LAND in the above flourishing Village, now one of the principal suburbs of Sydney. This Property is of itself of such value, that comment would be superfluous ; suffice it to say, that it is on the high Road to Cpok's River, within half a mile of the present boundary of the Metropolis, iii the furthest part of which the Government minimum price is £1,000 per acre, but more commonly selling at £2,000; but how long will New Town remain outside the boundary? It is oontended that in less than three years, Sydney must extend even further than New Town, especially when tile new Military Barracks (of which the first stone is to be laid in a few days in the immediate neigh- bourhood) shall be finished. And moreo»'er, these Allotments are surrounded by the properties and scats of David Chambers, Esq., Captain Brown, - Wilson, Esq , Robert Campbell, Esq., M: C, Mr. Iredale, and others. And the Cook's River road to Tempe, the beautiful seat of A. B. Spark, Esq., has already become one of the most favorite drives out of the metropolis, and on the instant the contemplated improvements shall take place, land on that line of road will, as a matter of course, rise enormously in value. Those »vho now lose sight of this sale will then have real cause to regret it. A large Brickmaking Es tablishment is on the adjoining property, and as tho land is entirely cleared and stumped, and has been in high cultivation, it is ready for building on. A Public House is particularly required^on this immediate spot, and with care and economy would realise a speedy independence to the Pro-

These Allotments, which the Surveyor is now engaged upon, are some of the most striking and beautiful situations on the River, while the Soil is rich and capable of producing almost anything being of the same fertile quality as the land about Kissing Point and generally on the north side of
the Parramatta River.
Parties intending to purchase those Villa Plots will find a great advantage and saving in buying land of good quality, where they may provide their own Vegetables and grow Barley without trouble or expense; for nothing can be more miserable than being surrounded with an hungry, iron stone scrub that would starve a bandicoot.
The Plan of these sixty small Farms may be seen any day after Monday next at the Auction Mart, and the Terms are most liberal, viz.: Five per cent. Cash deposit, and an approved indorsed Bill at Three Years date for the residue, bearing Bank Interest.

situate on the right hand side of the old road leading to Botany, and extonding down to the waters of Cook's River, a very little way beyond the Waterloo Mills. It is rich swampy soil in most parts, and always well watered; It is an easv distance from Town, and to Market Garden- ers or growers of green forage, &c, n sure fortune. It resembles the productive Garden Grounds in the neighbourhood of London, about Isleworlh and Bicntford. where land not a whit better than this, lets for £30 an acre of annual rent, morely to supply Covcnt Garden Market.
All cultivators of Garden ground know, that in this climate nothing can be done well without water. Even about London, where the climate is moist and foggy, willi more rainy days iu the year than fine ones; the Market Gardeners are up late and early at the well, and the bucket is never idle 'Tis the water which pays the rent, mid in a country so scarce of water as New South Wales generally, and Sydney in particular, these swampy spots, close to a flourishing Sea Port, are not sufficiently appreciated. The question asked by all purchasers now is, what is the land fit for, and %vhat will it produce to pay me for my outlay.
These eight little Farms, down in the hollow beyond the Surry Hills, for Sale, Wednesday, 18th, nnd within twenty minutes drive from Town, will prove to the purchaser, what can be done by an industrious man when he has got a good soil to work upon, and plenty of water.
