We are under obligation to our friend William Schoonover for a basket of the choicest apples it has been our lot to see for many a day. The lot contained no less than twelve varieties, and it was a little funny to see Mr.S., assort and name them over with as much familiarity as a school boy repeat his A.B.C. There was the Fall Pippen, Northern Spy, English Russet, Eoxbury Russet, Fall Bellflower, Strawberry Ipson, Tolmon, Dutch Nignon, King Baldwin, Rhode Island Greening, Wagner, and Winter Bellflower. Mr. Schoonover has, in his orchard several other varieties, som of which are early fruit , such as cherries, gooseberries, currants, blackberries, grapes, &c. His farm embraces sixty-three acres of the best kind of soil, and as productive as the Wabash bottoms. his improvements are moderately good, whilst his management and mode of farming will make any man rich in a few years. His wheat yielded 21 bushels per acre, machine measures and weighs at the market 64 lbs per bushel measure. Taken all in all, Mr. Schoonover's little farm is a fortune for any industrious man. It lies near old Etnire mill, we believe Liberty township, and if Mr. S. want to exchange it for town property, let him say so.
