She can pass through the Welland Canal with 350 to 375 tons coal.


Three-fourths of said Schooner will be sold reasonably.

Apply, either for charter or purchase, to R. Jackson, Auctioneer.

N.B. - No debts contracted on account of said vessel will be liquidated without a written order from R. Jackson.
