Public notice is hereby given, that the Steam Boat Rapid, with her furniture, etc., as she now lies, will be sold at public Auction at Prescott, on Tuesday the 18th of November next, at 11 o'clock A.M. The boat was built during the past season, upon the Burden principle, and was intended to navigate the Rapids of the St. Lawrence, but was found to draw too much water. The Engines are 60 Horse Power, with extra boilers, and are allowed by judges to be very superior in every respect.
The Boat and Engines will be sold together or separate, and as the sale must take place without any reserve, persons desirous of purchasing will doubtless find it an object to attend the sale.
She is admirably calculated for the trade between Montreal and Quebec, and could be taken down without any difficulty.
Tne third of the purchase money will be required at the time of sale, and approved endorsed notes will be received for the remainder, payable in three, six, and nine months, with interest.
By order of the Committee,
H. Norton, Secretary.
Prescott, 15th October, 1834.
