Full Text

The subscriber, wishing to participate in the transportation of Merchandize and Public stores across the lakes Huron & Erie, begs leave to acquaint the public, that the Snow DUKE OF WELLINGTON, of one hundred and thirty-two tons burthen, from henceforward, will, as occasion offers, carry goods of the following descriptions at the annexed, all Province Currency.
From Fort Erie to Amherstburg or Sandwich, and from either of the two latter ports, to that of Drummond Island, Viz: Goods usually measured, at 1s.6d. per foot;
Barrels of 38 to 40 galls. each, 9s. 4 1/2 d.
Lead, steel, iron in sheets or bars, and stove plates, 2s. 6d. per cwt.
Bags of flour of 1 cwt. each, 3s. 9d.
Bags of grain of 1 1/2 bushels, 3s. 9d.
Freight of Cattle will be proportionably low, according to the number.
All such as may be disposed to give the DUKE OF WELLINGTON the transport of their property, will have their return freight from either Amherstburg, Sandwich, or Drummond Island, at three shillings and nine pence per barrel bulk of 7 1/2 feet measurement, and packs of furs or peltries, at two shillings and six pence, per five feet measurement.
From the above terms being considerably below the rates charged by others since the termination of the late war, and he being the first to offer to carry at these reduced rates, as well as from the fast sailing and superior equipment of the DUKE OF WELLINGTON, the subscriber expects, at least, a share of the carrying business.
The strictest care will of course be taken of the property shipped, while on board, and the vessel will at all times be well found and manned.
Passengers may expect the best accommodation and treatment, having a very convenient and spacious cabin.
