His Majesty's Dock Yard, Kingston, U.C.
15th. November, 1831
N O T I C E is hereby given, that on the 18th. day of January, 1832, at 10 o'clock, A.M. the hulls of the following Ships as they now lay on the shore off the King's Dock Yard at Kingston, Upper Canada, will be disposed of by public auction, viz:
St. LAWRENCE of 102 Guns
KINGSTON of 56 Guns
BURLINGTON of 42 Guns
MONTREAL of 24 Guns
Also the frames of the WOLF and CANADA each pierced for 110 guns, as they stand on the stocks in the Dock Yard.
Immediately after the above sale, a quantity of standing and running rigging, late belonging to the St. LAWRENCE, KINGSTON and BURLINGTON and MONTREAL, will in like manner be disposed of. As this rigging has been but little used, and is in good condition, it may be advantageously relaid or otherwise converted.
The ships will be disposed of seperately and the rigging will be devided into lots to suit purchasers. A reasonable time will be allowed for the removable of the articles from the King's premises, which must be done at the purchaser's expense.
A deposit of twenty five per cent, will be required at the time of sale, and the remainder of the purchase money previous to the removal of the articles.
Further particulars may be learned at the Naval Store Keeper's Office, at Kingston Dock Yard, and of Mr. William Lunn, Clerk in charge of naval stores at Montreal.
On the opening of Navigation in 1832, about Twelve Hundred Spars for Masts and Yards, of from four to thirty-four inches in diameter, will be disposed of by Public Auction. Timely notice will be given of the days of sale. The spars may be previously examined; for which purpose application must be made at the Naval Store Keeper's Office.
