The subscriber respectfully informs his old customers and the public, that he carries on the above branches of business in the building occupied by Mr. George Norwood as a wagon making shop, where he will punctually attend to all orders with which he has been favored.  He is prepared to do all kinds of turning, (his lathe being propelled by steam) in the best manner and on the most favorable terms.  Sign Painting, of all descriptions, executed with neatness and promptitude.
