p.2 a letter to editor of Patriot about Welland Canal Stock.

New Provincial Customs Act - mentions Thirkell & Masson's foundry - ..."Messrs. Thirkell & Masson have cast cooking stoves of an improved construction, at the Kingston Foundry, so that we hope our merchants will shortly be supplied with the article at home, as good and cheap as can be obtained abroad. The Foundry has been greatly enlarged and improved by its present owners, who are engaged to construct 2 steam engines this winter one for a new steam boat building at the Marine Railway, and intended to replace the Sir James Kempt on the Bay of Quinte; and the other for a new steam boat to be built at Garden Island, by Messrs. Calvin, Cook and Counter, for Angus Cameron, Esq., and intended for the Bay also, if the merchants up the Bay take sufficient stock, but adapted for the lake navigation if desired..."

p.3 Complaints have been made in some of the papers in the lower part of the Province, respecting the want of storage for produce in Kingston. Such complaints will not be made (again?) Mr Garratt has nearly finished an immense Warehouse on his new wharf, 241 feet long by 60 feet wide, and 2 1/2 stories high. To give a better idea of its capacity, it will hold above 50,000 barrels of flour. We rather guess this will accommodate our growing trade.
