The subscribers have removed from the Phoenix Furnace in the city of Albany, to their new establishment, at the foot of Black Rock Harbour.

Their works are now in full operation, and are erected upon an extensive scale, being particularly calculated for casting and finishing all kinds of work for Steam Engines, Flouring Mills, Saw Mills, Fulling Mills, and Machinery, of every description.

They have now on hand, an extensive assortment of patterns, which is daily increasing, combining many important improvements in the application of cast iron. Mill-Wrights, and others, about to erect Flouring Mills, or machinery of any kind, will find every article in their line, of the first quality.

Owners of Steamboats, who may require repairs to the Engines, will find work of that kind done with great despatch and in the best manner.

They have at command, any amount of water power, which enables them to execute all kinds of boring and turning of cast iron, in the best manner, and on the most reasonable terms.

They keep always on hand a large assortment of Gibson's Patent Ploughs, and Plough Castings, made from the best of Salisbury Pig Iron. These Ploughs have now been in use for the last five years; and wherever they have been introduced, they have superseded [sic] all other cast iron ploughs.

The subscribers being themselves practical Mill-Wrights and Engineers, having a knowledge of the business in all its branches, undertake to furnish calculations and patterns for machinery of every description, on the most improved principles, and on reasonable terms.

All orders from a distance, which may be address to them by mail, at this place, will meet with immediate attention.
