EXTENSIVE GOING COAL AND SALTWORKS TO BE LET,


The Stevenston Coliery and Saltworks, with the whole machinery and utensils belonging thereto, as at present possessed by Messrs Warner and Cunninghame, the proprietors, for such a length of time as may be agreed on.
The coal, of which there are several seams, is of a superior quality, and there are at present four output pits. The local situation of the coal field is very eligible for disposing of the coal for export to Dublin and other places in Ireland, where there is always a regular demand, and also to the River Clyde, for home consumpt.

The most distant going pit in the field is only about two miles from Saltcoats harbour ; there is a good railway to Saltcoats, from which the harbour of Ardrossan! is only about two miles distant.
The Saltworks adjoin the harbour of Saltcoats, and have an ample supply of salt water, producing salt of the best quality, and made at a moderate expense.

Offers in writing, on or before the 12th April first, will be received by Robert Cunninghame, Esq. of Auchenharvie, at Seabank, near Saltcoats; William Patrick, W.S. Edinburgh; Mr Robert Rankin, senior, writer in Irvine; or. Samuel Croker, Saltcoats : any of whom will give directions for showing the works to intending offerers.

Coaliery Office. Saltcoats. 12th March 1825.

PEDESTRIANISM

DANIEL BLYTH, miner, Stevenston, Ayrshire, 25 years of age, 5 feet 10 inches in height, has accomplished the arduous feat of walking 52 miles for six successive days on an average of 12½ hours per day, between the town of Ardrossan and Darvel Toll-bar.

It is surprising to learn that he had just left the coal-mines, and began his task without any preparatory training, accomplishing with ease a task that has only been done with training, and not in so short a time.
