p.2 Arrivals - Lieutenant Harper R.N. arrived in Kingston from England. The latter gentleman is to command the new Steamer St. George.

On Sunday morning the fine vessel intended for a Tender to the Schooner Cockburn which was launched from the Dock Yard about three weeks ago sailed for Port Dalhousie having on board Commodore and Mrs. Barrie. After proceeding a few miles up the Lake the wind blowing strong from the South West she sprung her mast and was obliged to return to port. The necessary refitting having been accomplished the Commodore will probably sail again this evening. It is his intention to pass through the Welland Canal and continue upwards round Lake Huron as far as the navigation will permit. The intended cruise cannot be completed before the 1st of August next. Lieutenants Holbrook and Swainston accompany the Commodore.

Rideau Canal - should be open in about ten days.

Welland Canal - a great number of vessels using it every day and it is estimated the tolls this season will amount to about £7 500.

We are requested by Captain Smart who called at our office this morning to say that the statements contained in a certain Certificate published by the Master and crew of the Steamer Perseverance are generally incorrect but want of time prevents him from replying to them this week.

A letter signed by the passengers in the Perseverance is published at the request of Mr. J.G. Parker.

p.3 The Steam Boat Cobourg was safely launched on Sunday the 2nd instant and on Thursday last she was towed by the Great Britain to York where she is to receive her machinery.

Notice - The Stockholders of the Steamer Sir James Kempt are requested to call and receive the amount of their dividends declared this day.
