AUCTION SALE

By R. Jackson.

RIDEAU NAVIGATION

The Steam Boats

RIDEAU & MARGARET,

(Belonging to the Estate of the late R. Drummond, Esq.)

With Engines and Furniture Complete.

The Sale of the above Steam Boats which was advertised to take place on the 21st inst. is unavoidably postponed until Thursday the 15th day of January next - when they will be positively disposed of by private sale.

These Vessels are in good sailing condition, and have been constantly used on the RIDEAU CANAL during the present year - in fact, it is needless to say further in recommendation of them than to state, that they were successful during the unusual lowness of the waters of the past season, and during the time of their running, had three or four heavily laden barges in tow.

Likewise,

At the same time and place,

THE DURHAM BOATS

MARGARET, THREE BROTHERS and ROB ROY

With Masts and Rigging.

The sale will take place on board the respective vessels which will be moored alongside of the late Mr. Drummond's wharf.

Persons wishing to have an interest in one of the finest water communications in the Canadas, would do well to embrace this opportunity.

The Terms, which are very liberal, may be known by applying to

R. Jackson, Auctioneer.

Kingston, 22nd November, 1834.
