SALE OF SALVAGE AT MILFORD DOCKS. At Milford Docks on Tuesday afternoon, Mr Frank B. Mason, auctioneer and Lloyd's sub- agent at Tenby, conducted the sale of many tons of salvage recovered from the wreck of the steam- ship Langton Grange, which, by the way, meant the paying over by the underwriters of a sum of no less than JE61,000, for which amount she was insured. The lots were of a most miscellaneous description, ranging from dainty wine glasses or silver-plated goods to complicated engines or luxurious cabin furniture. Metal pipes realized as much as £45 per ton, and, as is usual with salvage sales, prices generally ruled high, although canvas, sails, and awnings did not come up to expectations in this respect. Splendid life-boats fitted with copper tanks were knocked down for about £6 apiece, while useful gigs went for £4 15s. each. The immense anchors, cable chains, and manilla hawsers had been disposed of privately. The whole of the arrrngements were m the capa- ble hands of Mr John Phillips, Lloyd's Agent for Milford Haven, the same gentleman who con- ducted the affairs relating to H.M.S. Montagu, wrecked on Lundy Island.
