p.2 Persons engaged in the Lake and River navigation are directed to the notice of the Ship Chandlery Warehouse just opened by the Messrs. Ives, in Water Street. It is the only establishment of the kind in the province, and was very much wanted, as persons fitting out vessels have had to go to Oswego for that purpose. They can now be supplied in Kingston with every article they may require, on reasonable terms.



Messrs. Ives, owners of the steamer Queenston, beg leave to return their thanks to Captain Sherriff, of the Steamer Sir James Kempt, for voluntarily hauling off the Queenston, when on ground in the Bay of Quintie, during last week.
