For Capitalists!

For rent or lease, one of the finest farms in Eastern North Carolina, situated 3 1/2 miles from New-Berne, well known as "Camp Palmer."

Seamers pass every day. Has one of the finest ranges for cattle, hogs or sheep; particulary adapted for a dairy farm and henner. Suited either for Winter or Summer range. Also, a fine Race Course, one mile track.

Any one wishing to engage in either of the above industries, will find it greatly to their advantage to lease.
