The sale of unclaimed goods advertised in our columns by the Southern Express Company did not come off yesterday, and, indeed, another advertisement by the company showed that the sale had been postponed.
This course has been pursued, we feel satisfied, because many of the packages belong to soldiers now stationed in different parts of the Confederacy
and unable to call for them at the present time.
With a vast number of packages, of different sizes, many of them large and occupying considerable room, it will be seen that it requires a large storehouse to hold them.
All the available space at the disposal of the company is being rapidly filled, and it becomes necessary to impress that fact upon the owners of boxes now in their hands, that they may be removed.
The object of advertising the goods at sanction was to induce, if possible, the owners to remove them.
This has been done in a measure, but many still remain.
