Vessels For The Coal Oil Trade

The St. Catharines Journal says: "We understand that on Friday or Saturday last, Mr. Muir, the eminent ship-builder and owner, of Port Dalhousie, was waited upon by a deputation from the oil regions of Enniskillen, who made him an offer to purchase the Niagara, Alexander, and the new vessel he has on the stocks, but we believe, he has not yet decided to sell. The vessels, if sold, will be taken and devoted exclusively to the conveyance of coal oil from Canada to Europe. The Niagara and Alexander are both staunch sea-vessels, the latter having been rigged in Ireland, and the former has made a voyage to Scotland, and is now in the St.Lawrence awaiting the opening of navigation to cross the Atlantic again."
