The following are the rates charged for hauling Vessels on the Railway - Viz;

Steam Boats - One shilling, cur'cy, per ton. - Forty-eight hours allowed the Boat from the time she touches the Cradle until she leaves it. The charge for remaining on the Railway after the first forty eight hours will be four pence per ton each day.

Sailing Vessels - Of one hundred and fifty tons and under, £2 10s 0d. and one shilling cur'cy, for every ton above one hundred and fifty. Forty-eight hours allowed as above; after the expiration thereof the charge for remaining on the Railway will be two pence per ton each day.

No charge for occupation on Sundays, or when the weather prevents repairs going on.

Boats and Vessels wintering in the Basin will, as heretofore, be admitted free of harbour rates, and have storage for sails, stores, etc. without charge.

Terms - Cash

There are connected with the Marine Railway, a Foundry, Blacksmith shop, and shipyard, stocked with every article requisite for building and repairing Steam-boats, Engines, and Vessels, and from the number of mechanics constantly employed in these establishments, very great despatch can be given to Boats and Vessels repairing in the Basin, or on the railway. The latter, from the openness of the river and situation of the place can be used, with the exception of the months of January and February, throughout the whole year, and, in most instances, any repairs can be completed on it within the forty-eight hours allowed for hauling and letting down.

By order of the Directors,

D.L. COX, Secretary.

Office of the Niagara Harbour and Dock Company, Sept. 6th, 1837.
