p.3 Changed Hands Twice - The wharf property and houses attached, at the foot of Queen Street, were purchased yesterday morning by Mr. Isaac Noble, wood merchant. In the afternoon of the same day Mr. Noble sold them to Captain John Gaskin for the Montreal Transportation Company. The last purchasers intend to make an addition of 300 feet to the pier - as far as the harbor line will allow. This extension will be made in order to have a sufficient depth of water for the large vessels expected to come here on the completion of the Welland Canal. Mr. Noble purchased the property for $10,000, and made probably $500 or $600 by the transaction.

Vessel Sold - Today the schr. Flora Carveth (lately seized for debt) was sold by public auction to Messrs. Jeff and Baker, of Trenton, for $5,600. This amount will pay the claims against the vessel and leave a small balance to divide among the seamen who are out of their wages.
