East Cowes Park is within 3 or 4 hours' journey from London and comprises 146 acres, forming a gradual ascent of about 170 feet from the sea. Small portions have been sold to Her Majesty, who usually proceeds through the estate from Trinity Pier direct to the Royal Lodge at Osborne. It has been expensively laid .out-roads made 66 feet wide, borders planted, about 3 miles of iron palisading fixed, with grates, &c, good drainage, and an arboretum of pleasure ground of 22| acres formed in the centre. Several mansions, villas, and dwellings have been erected, Which, with other sources, produce a large annual income, leaving the greater portion of the estate available for beneficial operations. It has a good water supply, contains several acres of wood, a useful stone quarry, gravel, sand, and grit, the lower part abounding with coloured clays of great depth, in strata varying from pale white to deep crimson, and has a water frontage for vessels of large tonnage. An expensive kiln, pug mill, buildings and machinery have been constructed, and superior bricks, ridge and other tiles, drain pipes, terra cotta. &c, manufactured. It is proposed to purchase arid improve this property on the sound and accumulative principle of Tontine, and when ten lives only remain the fortunate owners so surviving will take the whole absolutely. Meanwhile the income, already considerable, will be divided annually among the proprietors during their own or their nominees' lives. As an investment this mode is both safe and eligible, with the certainty of immediate return and a yearly increasing income afterwards, besides the chance of final survivorship. The return' of the capital, also, in case of early demise, might at a small-outlay be secured by effecting a life insurance. To heads of families the system affords easy means of providing for children, and in arrangements for personal benefit it has the advantage of a progressively increasing income and existing interests always disposeable by deed or will. A detailed Prospectus, with plan, aud form of ; pplication for Subscriptions may be obtained at the tices, Bond Court House, Walbrook, where manufactured specimens of the clay produce may be inspected, and every information obtained.
