Forwarding and Commission Business, at Black Rock

The subscribers are happy to inform their customers that the Black Rock Harbor is so nearly completed as to enable them to resume the Forwarding and Commission Business, at their old stand at this place, where, as Agents, they will be prepared to receive property and to forward the same (on the opening of navigation) to any port on this or the Upper Lakes--to Montreal, or to New-York- -as safe and expeditiously as any House engaged in that business. They are well provided with good Boats, and safe and convenient Store-houses, and will have the following Vessels, which will be employed on this and the Upper Lakes, viz:

Mariner Capt. Blake;
Eclipse Pease;
Michigan Look;
Red Jacket Walker;
Erie Norton;
Decatur Miles;

Which together with an interest in the steam boats now building at this place, will, they trust, enable them to forward property committed to their care, to the satisfaction of their employers. Liberal advances will be made on all property deposited with them, if required. As usual, they will be engaged in the transportation of salt, and will keep a supply on hand at this place for sale.

Ruffalo [sic]

For the accommodation of their customers they will keep an establishment at Buffalo, under the firm of John L. Kimberly, & Co. and will be happy to attend the calls of their friends at either place.

The Canal is now completed to Lockport, which will enable them to transport Goods from New York to this place by Water, with the exception of about four miles across the Mountain Ridge, where the state is now improving the road.
