DESIRABLE SHIPPING INVESTMENT
      The subscriber offers for sale his interest of two thirds in the well known clipper schooner JAMES BUCHANAN, of Port Stanley. This vessel is constructed of the best white oak, and was built in 1852, under the immediate superintendance of the present owners. She is admitted by competant judges, to have turned out one of the handiest crafts ever launched upon the lakes, on which she has already earned a high reputation as well for her sailing as her tonnage capabilities. She carries 10,000 bushels of wheat through the canal to Montreal, in which trade she has hitherto regularly and successfully employed. To anyone desirous of a paying investment in lake shipping, such an eligible opportunity is seldom offered. The vessel may be seen at Port Stanley, where she is laid up for the winter.
