Wharfage, Forwarding and Storage.

G.M. Kinghorn begs to inform his friends and the public that he has leased from John Carruthers, Esq., for a term of years, the United States and Bay of Quinte Wharves, where he intends commencing business on the 1st April, as

Wharfinger, Forwarding Agent, Commission Merchant and Customhouse Broker.

The premises have a large Fire Proof Stone Store and Sheds erected on them, and are the most commodious for storing and transhipping in this port. These wharves being the stopping place for the United States Lake and River Mail Line, Bay of Quinte, Cape Vincent and other steamers, every facility is afforded to give dispatch to goods passing through his hands.

Any business in his line will be attended to with promptitude, and he trusts by long experience in the trade, attention to business and reasonable charges, to receive a fair share of public support.

Kingston, Feb. 22nd, 1853.
