Constables1 Blanks for sale,
At this Office.
N order to relieve our endorsers at
Bank from their responsibility, lo pay
our other debts, and close the partner
diip between us, we hereby offer for sale
the Office and Establishment of the In
telligencer and Petersburg Commer
cial Advertiser. It is needless to ex
patiate on the value of this property, to
a gentleman of talent and capital, capa
ble of conducting the business to advan
tage. The office is complete and well
supplied in every kind of Type and
Press that can be required; and the list
of Subscribers, and Advertising custom
for many years extended to the estab
lishment, will speak for themselves.
The Newspaper has at no period been
more liberally patronized than at pre
sent.. ..it has about 900 good subscribers,
the amount of advertising has been fully
$4000 per annum heretofore, with very
considerable job-work. ...so that we may
s y without exaggeration that the gross
income of the establishment has avera
ged about $8000 per annum for the last
eight years; while the annual expences
of the Printing-Office amount to little
more" than S3000. Such being facts
(and that we state nothing but the truth,
any gentleman by calling upon us can
be satisfied,) scarcely any consideration,
but the imperious obligations above
mentioned, could induce us to part with
property so valuable. It will be offered
at private sale until the first day of April
next; on which day, should it not be
disposed of (and due notice will be giv
en of a transfer,) it will be sold publicly (
on the premises occupied by us on Bank
Street, to the highest bidder. The
terms will be made known on applica
tion; but there is no doubt, should a re
sponsible purchaser present himself,
that on paying down a small amount in
cash, a reasonable credit for the greater
par t of the purchase money might be ob
tained. Gentlemen disposed to avail
themselves of this offer, can receive any
further information they desire, by ad
dressing Dr. Richard Fetid, of Bruns
wick, Mr. Miles Jordan of Lunenburg,
Mr. James B. Kendall of Petersburg,
or the Subscribers.
