For the Purchase of Northern Navigation Co.

Hamilton, Jan. 16th - When asked if there was any truth in the report that President Playfair was negotiating for the purchase of the Northern Navigation company, officers of Inland Navigation company refused to say anything other than that the people who had given out the story were not on the inside and did not know the particulars. The local officers admitted that there was a deal on, however, and intimated that they expected President Playfair to arrive in Hamilton this afternoon in connection with the matter.
