TO BE SOLD, BY THE STONE, AT RAUGHLAN, A few cwts. of MUMMY WHEAT. A sheaf of this superior Wheat was exhibited at the last Show of the Lurgan Union Farming Society. The seed was first brought into England from Thebes, by Sir Wm. Symonds, of Hampshire, and now grown by Francis Fforde, Esq., of Raughlan. It is the produce of one grain of Egyptian wheat obtained from a mummy. What is most remarkable is the great length of time that has elapsed since the corn from which the plant was produced grew; for, at the most reasonable computation, no less a time than 571 years b.c , or 2,400 years, have passed away since any record can be obtained of entombing mummies within the tombs of Thebes
There are, at a very moderate computation, upwards of 1,600 grains of corn in 15 stems. The stem is a single ear, resembling our common ears of wheat, and this springs from the same root. May we not, therefore, infer that the wheat now grown is a degenerate class of this same species which formerly grew in Egypt; else, how could the Egyptians have supplied the empire of Assyria, Greece, and Rome, from their superabundance above their own wants. Raughlan, Dec. 10, 1849

DESIRABLE SITE FOR A FLAX SPINNING MILL
PERSONS disposed to Erect a Mill of this description, can obtain a desirable Site for the purpose in a peaceful and populous neighbourhood, on the Estate of the RIGHT HONOURABLE LORD LURGAN, in the County of Armagh, immediately adjoining the River Bann, and a short distance from where it enters Lough Neagh. The place in question (from the facilities of water carriage, and being only about five miles from the Railway Stations at Lurgan and Portadown, and as an unlimited supply of Turf can be obtained on the spot) will be found to possess many advantages.
It was selected for a Mill Site some years ago, but in consequence of the late LORD LURGAN being strict tenant for life, with a limited leasing power, a proper Lease could not be granted; a long lease at a fair and moderate rent can now, however, be granted, and other encouragements under the provisions of the 1st WM. IV., c. 65, will be given to a desirable Texant [sic].
All further information can be obtained by application to JOHN HANCOCK, ESQ., Lurgan, or MR. HAZLETT, Solicitor, at his Offices, No. 3, Lower Dominick-Street, Dublin, and Lurgan. Lurgan, Dec. 6, 1849.
