Vessel Sales in 1867

Aside from sixty-five sales of vessels of a lesser character, ranging in amounts from $400 to $4,000 each, we present below the principal and leading transactions of the year, the greater number of which transpired during the past winter and spring. Many at that time invested in vessel stock far beyond their means of paying, in anticipation of another prosperous year as instanced the two previous seasons. It is needless to add the year now closing finds them embarrassed far beyond the possibility of recovery. The total amount of sales including the above purposely omitted for the year, we find to be 333, exceeding the previous year (by) 110. In remote localities and doubtless elsewhere, many have transpired which have not been made public, while others it is possible may have escaped our notice, when the number would reach nearer 400 than the figure we have presented.
