IS instructed by the . Proprietor to offer

to Public Competition, 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 Cook's River, within half a mile of the present boundary of the Metropolis, in 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 contended that in less than three years, Sydney must extend even further than New Town, especially when the 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 moreover, these Allotments are surrounded by the properties and seats 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 who now lose sight of this sale will then have real cause to regret it. A large Brickmaking Estab- lishment is on the adjoining property, and as the 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-

and is well known as the best in one of the best

grazing firms in the County of Cumberland. There is a Shepherd's residence on the Land, and a number of acres cleared and have been in cultivation.

60 VILLA Allotments, of One and

Two Acres each, just across the Ferry, only seven miles from town by land, and half an hour by the Steamer, immediately fronting the

Five Docks:

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.

Any Family or Gentleman in town, whether Merchants or Military or Civil Officers, wishing to escape from the dust and mosquitoes of Sydney, from civic revelry to rural pleasures and occupa- tions, and enjoy a Ferme Ornée on the north bunk of the River, within a twenty minutes sail by Steam, will find this a desirable opportunity of obtaining a cheerful residence and a few acres of excellent Land, upon very easy terms.

on the Anniversary of the Colony, the 26th of January, al the Auction Mart, and »vhich James and Co.'s Surveyor is busily engaged upon to have the Plans ready in time for the day of Sale, (when they »vill be lithographed for general inspection), are all of first-rale character as to soil and situation ; mid will be sold remarkably cheap, asd upon the very extended credit of Three and Seven Y'ears, paying only eight per cent.

Intending Purchasers are requested to ride out and look ai the quality of the soil before they buy; and to bear in mind, that in purchasing un- improved land and »vhich cannot be made im- mediately productive, it is of great consequence to the buyer to have a long credit._

One 'Í 12j " One " 12£ '. One V " 12J " One " 12Í "

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.

TERMS-Twenty per cent, deposit, and ap- proved endorsed Bills at 3 months for the residue.

The Plan will be ready in n few days._
