Forwarding Storage - We understand that Messrs. Ferguson and M'Gibbon, Forwarding Merchants, have rented the immense new warehouse just built by Mr. Garratt, for the sum of 750 pounds per annum. This is a high rent, but the accommodations for storage, receiving and unloading cargoes, is so great, that the advantage may fairly be assumed to be on the side of the tenants. As we have formerly remarked, this warehouse is capable of containing upwards of 40,000 barrels of flour. It was finished yesterday, and there need be no more complaints of want of storage in Kingston, for Messrs. Ferguson & M'Gibbon can accommodate the trade to any extent that can be desired. [Kingston Herald]

The arrangement we alluded to a fortnight ago respecting the steamboat fare, has been carried into effect; and the Princess Royal is advertised to take passengers between Toronto and Kingston at $5 for the cabin fare, and $2 for a deck passage. [ib.]
