Montezuma Village Lots.

The lots in the village of Montezuma are now offered for sale, being surveyed of different sizes to suit purchasers. The natural advantages of this village are supposed to be greater than any village possesses on the Canal from Lake Erie to Utica. It must be the place of deposit for the produce from the Cayuga Lake, the Seneca lake, the Canandaigua lake and outlet, Mud creek and the Seneca river. Its inexhaustible sources of soft water, of a far superior to that at Salina, will always render it a place of importance for the manufacture of that necessary and useful article.

Its clay for making the different kinds of ware has been found to be excellence; and it is expected that the abundant supply of water to the Canal will afford a sufficiency of waste water for mill-seats, and all other necessary hydraulic purposes. The bridge over the Seneca river is now building, connecting it with a Turnpike road to the east and west, which with the rapid progress of the settlement in its immediate vicinity, must inevitably render it a place of the first importance in the western country.

An opportunity is now afforded for persons to purchase, who wish to settle in a growing village, or to vest their money in the purchase of property which will rapidly increase in value. More than fifty village lots have been sold this spring, and purchasers who wish to have a choice of stands are requested to call soon.

Enquire of Comfort Tyler and Peter Clarke, Esq's. at Montezuma, where a map of the village may be seen, or of Joseph Otis, James Lovatt or James B. ?Clarke, New-York, committee for said company.
