To be sold by public roup, in the Tontine Coffee-house, on Wednesday 4th August next, between the hours of one and three o'clock afternoon, if not previously sold by private bargain ...
KING-STREET SUGARHOUSE, with or without utensils.
The subject consists of a Boiling house, Fill room, and other apartments on the ground floor, and five lofts immediately above them, of about 63 feet long, and 41 feet wide within the walls; a Raw Sugar warehouse, of four floors and cellars, about 45 feet long, and 18 feet and upwards wide within the walls; a Sales warehouse and cellars, with a dwelling-house, of a kitchen, four rooms, and a closet and garrets above, fronting Prince's Street, or Gibson's Wynd.
The subject is 127 feet or thereby in front of King's Street, and about 90 feet or thereby in front to Prince's Street, is bounded on the east side by a public alley, so that the entries to the subject, by so many different ways, makes it very convenient for a subdivision, or other purposes. Adjoining to the property, and divided from it by the alley only, is a yard and set of houses. The houses, without the yard, rent at 22L.; the rents of which have not been advanced in many years past. The subject lies at the head of a close which goes nearly in a straight line to the Saltmarket, near St. Andrew's Street. The whole subject, and every part of it must ever be valuable, as the city markets for beef, mutton, fish, cheese, butter &c. are in the same street, and is the thoroughfare to them; and the immediate vicinity of the post-office renders it eligible for shops, warehouses, counting-houses, &c. There are other buildings in the Sugarhouse close, besides these already mentioned, fit for cellars and other valuable purposes. There is a well of excellent water in the close, which has never been known to want water in abundance, in the greatest and longest droughts.
For further particulars apply to John and William Duguid, at King-street Sugarhouse.

The house is 9 stories high, and 120 feet long by 45 feet wide, and contains a complete suite of counting houses.

To be SOLD by Private Contract
The capital Dwelling House and Warehouse in Lewin's Mead, Bristol; the former comprising on the ground floor a parlour, closet, pantry, kitchen and back-kitchen and large drawing room above, four good bedrooms, and both sorts of water; the latter comprising a large Five-Storey Warehouse, formerly a Sugar House, with stones and crane, range of buildings, cooperage and scum house, with a large boiler, convenient counting house and stables, all in the occupation of Mr Edward Jones.
The above is Freehold, with the exception of the cooperage and scum house, which are Leasehold and held for the remained of a term of 99yrs, determinable with two good lives.
ALSO, an extensive Freehold Warehouse in Lewin's Mead, comprising very large woorkrooms, 8 large upper floors, 2 large attics, counting house and laboratory, and buildings used as a factory and mill house, 2 warerooms and stables, cooperage and warehouse of two floors, with crane.
ALSO, a very extensive Warehouse, newly erected consisting of a ground and upper floor, fornerly a Sugar House, 2 arched wine or store cellars, 2 pumps, and an entrance way for loading within the premises, all in the occupation of Messrs, George Price & Co.
The above premises, in addition to being Let at Rents which will amply remunerate a purchaser for the sum he may be required to give for them, are likely to increase greatly in value. Their central situation, a few minutes walk only from the Exchange and the Quay, will ensure for them a decided preference in event of any demand for warehouse property consequent on Railroad operations, and should these disappoint expectation it is hardly conceivable but that a property lying in the heart of the City and covering a space of ground of about 140 ft square will, in spite of any depression of commerce, soon find its just value. The ground alone, with respect to the probability of it being required for public improvements, is worth the sum at which the whole is offered, and the advertiser especially calls the attention of buyers who are disposed to calculate on improving times in Bristol to this property, as one that may be purchased without risk, and with every probability of its being double in value. There is a mortgage at present on the premises, which may in all probability be allowed to remain.
For further particulars apply to Dr Day, Hillgrove St, Bristol; or to Messrs A & J Livett, solicitors, Broad St, Bristol.

Sale of Sugar Refinery ...
The Orchard Sugar Refinery, Ingleston St, belonging to the Orchard Sugar Refining Co, was yesterday afternoon exposed for sale in the Tontine Hotel, the upset price being £18,000. There was a spirited competition. Mr R Orkney (of Messrs R & S Neill, Clerk & Orkney, writers), on behalf of Mr Andrew Stewart, sugar refiner, offered the upset price. Mr Walter Thorburn, sugar refiner, advanced £20, and thereafter the bid went up until £24,100 was reached, at which figure the refinery was knocked down to Mr Orkney. The ground extends to over 2 acres, with a frontage of 215 ft to Ingleston St. The building and machinery are in good order, and the plant capable of producing 450 tons of refined sugar per week. The feu-duty is £118 4s per annum.
