. Auotion Sales. , We .wish to draw attention to Messrs. Tate and Co.'s larid sale of .the Pacific Estate, which ..takes place to-day, as advertised in our columns of this issue. . A. few weeks ago, we gave a short description of the lovely situation and beautiful views of the Silverton Estate, com manding, as it does, one of the finest sights of the harbour to be had anywhere. This estate -was then sold 'by auction^ and the prices realised proved that the public quite endorsed onr opinion. The Pacific Estate is almost adjoining the Silverton, and close to Rose Bay, near the Lighthouse and [convenient to Watson's Bay, Bondi, Waverly, etc. It com prises 35 villa sites and water frontage blocks, of the good depth of 184 feet, and the terms offered are remarkably easy — small deposit and no interest. Free busses start from Slough's Hotel, corner of King and Elizabeth streets at 2 o'clock to-day sharp, to take in tending purchasers to the field of battle. For further particulars see our...
