PUBLICK SALE OF VILLAGE LOTS IN HURON, OHIO.--The subscribers will offer for sale, at publick auction, a great number of Lots in the flourishing village of Huron, Ohio, on the east side and at the mouth of Huron River. There is not, perhaps, on the whole chain of Lakes, a better Harbour, or one more easy of access than that of Huron. It is, at this time, a place of very considerable business, and increasing very rapidly. It is the most southerly harbour on Lake Erie, and there is said to be more travel to and from this port by land, than any other on the Lake. It is also one of the best places for ship-building, some of our best steam-boats and vessels having been built there; and it is acknowledged by all to have the best back country of Lake Erie, if not on any of the Lakes. All the steamboats touch at Huron, on their trips up and down the Lake. it is distant about 80 miles from Detroit and Maumee, and about 60 miles from Cleveland.

One quarter of the purchase money will be required at the time of sale, the balance in four equal yearly payments, with interest annually at the rate of 6 per cent. A map of the above property can be seen at the store of Kissam & Tredwell, No. 204 Main-st. The above sale to commence on Tuesday, the 13th day of July next, at Jenkins Hotel, in the village of Huron.
