REV. EDWARD A. WILSON,
WILLIAMSBURGH, KINGS Co.,
Is about equal in extent to
England, with a population of 1,722,666, and a soil capable of supporting
20,000,000. No State in the Valley of the Mississippi offers so great an
inducement to the Settler as the State of Illinois. There is no part of the
world where all the conditions of climate and soil so admirably combine to
produce those two great staples, CORN and WHEAT.
Nowhere can the industrious
farmer secure such immediate results from his labor as on these deep, rich,
loamy soils, cultivated with so much ease. The climate, from the extreme
southern part of the State to the Terre Haute, Alton, and St. Louis Railroad, a
distance of nearly 200 miles, is well adapted to Winter.
WHEAT, CORN, COTTON, TOBACCO,
Peaches, Pears, Tomatoes, and every variety of fruit and vegetables is grown in
great abundance, from which Chicago and other Northern markets are furnished
from four to six weeks earlier than their immediate vicinity. Between the Terre
Haute, Alton, and St. Louis Railway and the Kankakee and Illinois Rivers (a
distance of 115 miles on the Branch, and 136 miles on the Main Trunk), lies the
great Corn and Stock raising portion of the State.
THE ORDINARY YIELD
of Corn is from 50 to 80 bushels
per acre. Cattle, Horses, Mules, Sheep, and Hogs are raised here at a small
cost, and yield large profits. It is believed that no section of country
presents greater inducements for Dairy Farming than the Prairies of Illinois, a
branch of farming to which but little attention has been paid, and which must
yield sure profitable results. Between the Kankakee and Illinois Rivers, and
Chicago and Dunleith (a distance of 56 miles on the Branch and 147 miles by the
Main Trunk), Timothy Hay, Spring Wheat, Corn, &c., are produced in great
The Agricultural products of
Illinois are greater than those of any other State. The Wheat crop of 1861 was
estimated at 35,000,000 bushels, while the Corn crop yields not less than
140,000,000 bushels, besides the crop of Oats, Barley, Rye, Buckwheat, Potatoes,
Sweet Potatoes, Pumpkins, Squashes, Flax, Hemp, Peas, Clover, Cabbage, Beets,
For Spring and Summer.
For Dyspeptic and Bilious
Complaints, Headaches, Constipation, Piles, &c.; as a gentle and efficient
Purgative; as a refreshing and invigorating Draught; suitable for all ages and
sexes, and may be taken at all times.
Tarrant's Effervescent Seltzer
has the approbation and
preference of the BEST PHYSICIANS, over Mineral Waters, Seidlitz Powders, Pills,
and harsh Purgatives.

Tobacco, Sorgheim, Grapes,
Peaches, Apples, &c., which go to swell the vast aggregate of production in this
fertile region. Over Four Million tons of produce were sent out the State of
Illinois during the past year.
In Central and Southern Illinois
uncommon advantages are presented for the extension of Stock raising. All kinds
of Cattle, Horses, Mules, Sheep, Hogs, &c., of the best breeds, yield handsome
profits; large fortunes have already been made, and the field is open for others
to enter with the fairest prospects of like results. DAIRY FARMING also presents
its inducements to many.
CULTIVATION OF COTTON.
The experiments in Cotton culture
are of very great promise. Commencing in latitude 39 deg. 30 min. (see Mattoon
on the Branch, and Assumption on the Main Line), the Company owns thousands of
acres well adapted to the pe.fection of this fibre. A settler having a family of
young children, can turn their youthful labor to a most profitable account in
the growth and perfection of this plant.
THE ILLINOIS CENTRAL RAILROAD
Traverses the whole length of the
State, from the banks of the Mississippi and Lake Michigan to the Ohio. As its
name imports, the Railroad runs through the centre of the State, and on either
side of the road along its whole length lie the lands offered for sale.
CITIES, TOWNS, MARKETS, DEPOTS. There are Ninety-eight Depots on
the Company's Railway, giving about one every seven miles. Cities, Towns, and
Villages are situated at convenient distances throughout the whole route, where
every desirable commodity may be found as readily as in the oldest cities of the
Union, and where buyers are to be met for all kinds of farm produce.
Mechanics and working-men will
find the free school system encouraged by the State, and endowed with a large
revenue for the support of the schools. Children can live in sight of the
school, the college, the church, and grow up with the prosperity of the leading
State in the Great Western Empire.
