Notice and Caution. \Vf/HEREAS t have been informed that John Carnochan and Peter Mitchell of this city have by sundry deeds recently mortgaged and assigned to divers persons either their indivi dual creditors, creditors of the late firm of Car nochan y Mitchell, or others, all or sundry the property and estate, both real and personal, of tlie said firm, as well as their own individual property and estate, consisting together of houses, lots, lands, stores, wharves, negroes, Eic in Savannah and Darien in Georgia, or the neigh borhood thereof, and elsewhere with their in terest or share in the stock of the lower steam mill near Darien, and sundry shares in the U. S Bank and other banks, as well as sundry debts due to them ill various places, besides lands, lots, negroes, &c. in the territory of Florida, and particularly one large tract of land bought of Forbes & Cos. lying between the rivers St. Marks and Appalachicola in the territory of Floi ida aforesaid. These are hereby to caution the public against purchasing any pai't of the said property or es tate so conveyed, or any property belonging to the said Carnochan EJ Mitchell,or either of them, as I hold prior mortgages on the greatest part thereof, which are on record in the registry in Savannah and Darien aforesaid and in Charleston S. C. and equitable liens on all the property of said John Carnochan and Peter Mitchell. WM. CHRISTIE. june 11 |37 ___ _____ To the Public. J|. CARNOCHAN and P. MITCHELL, are Qj sorry to be again brought before the public, by a second notice of Mr. Christie’s, who has undoubtedly claims against th- m, which, when finally liquidated on the decision of thefeuitnow pending, they will try to satisfy as soon as possi ble thereafter. The deeds tinder which Mr. Christie claims an exclusive right to all the real and personal es tate of Cornochan & Mitchell, are considered as informal, unjust and illegal. Hence they have been brought and are still before the court, and other deeds have been executed and recorded, conveying the property for the use of all their creditors, Mr. Christie included, without any trust or reservation beneficial to C. & M or their families, and if this be not agreeable to that gentleman, it must nevertheless appear fair and equitable to the public and all who have a sense of justice. The Trustees under the late deeds are anx iou to sell the lands in Florida, alluded to in the no tice of Mr. Christie, and to apply the proceeds to tlie immediate payment ot part of his tie. maud, and deposit a sufficiency tliereo: to cover all his claim, subject to the decision of the courts. —but his opposition to any reasonable sale, as one interested in his own right, whilst injuring all parties concerned, must be borne until a sale can be made under an order of court. june 11 f37 One hundred Dollars Reward.
