East Oswego Lumber Yard and Planing Mill. - In another column will be found the card for Messrs. Goit & McCollom, proprietors of this establishment. They have a brig building 45 by 66 feet, four stories high, filled with various kinds of modern machinery together with a shed for dressed lumber covering an area of four thousand square feet. An idea of the extent of the business conducted by this concern, may be formed from the fact that they make shavings enough to furnish all the fuel for a 30 horse power steam engine.

They have in the same building, and for which they furnish the power, the carpenter's shop of C.H. Woodruff, furniture manufactory of J. Malone, builders shop of H.W. Seeber, block manufactory of E. Anthony and the sash, blind and door manufactory of Burr and Gillmore. Messrs. Goit & McCollom with their machinery can plane 25,000 feet of lumber per day, and such is the popularity of this concern and their manner of dealing with their patrons, that they cannot fill all their orders.

They buy their lumber in Canada, and can therefore sell to their customers at low prices, as is evidenced by the fact that their trade extending all along the line of the Central Rail-Road, and as far east as New Jersey, is constantly on the increase. These gentlemen have gained this wide spread and justly deserved popularity, by a long and regular course of honorable and fair dealing, and are now reaping the sure reward of such a course.
