p.3 It is stated in the Chronicle that "the Collector of the Customs at this Port has received instructions from the Inspector General, to admit all vessels from the United States, without requiring the customary fee for entry."

The Weather is now, and has been for several days, extremely pleasant. There is every appearance of the harbour being open in the course of the present week, and consequently the greatest activity prevails among those connected with the shipping interest. The Steam-boats which may be expected to ply on the Lake, river and Rideau Canal this season, are the Great Britain, Queenston, United Kingstom, Niagara, William Fourth, Sir J. Kempt, Toronto, Britannia, Canadian, John By, Rideau, Constitution, and two or three others whose names we do not recollect. - Including the American boats, there will not be less than Twenty steamers which must touch at Kingston at least once a week during the ensuing six months.
