p.3 From Kingston we have received the following list of arrivals and departures at that port.

Arrivals - April 24th - Schooners Union and Enterprise, laden for John Torrance & Co., consigned to McGibbon & Ferguson.

- Schooners Amelia and Elizabeth, laden for Gillespie, Moffatt, Jamieson & Co., consigned to McGibbon & Ferguson.

April 25th - Schooner Union, from Toronto, pork and flour, Ferguson & McGibbon.

- Schooner Perry, from Whitby, pork flour and meal, Easton, Ross & Co.

- Schooner Wallace, from Port Hope, pork, and flour, to Easton, Ross & Co., and Macpherson & Crane.

Departures - April 25th - Schooner Amelia, for Toronto, ballast. Five barges with full cargoes of pork, flour and wheat, for Montreal, via St. Lawrence.

The steamer Dolphin arrived at Coteau du Lac, on the 29th, from Kingston, with barges, Ant, Bee, Elf, Fly, and Fox, consigned to Ferguson & McGibbon, and laden with wheat, flour, pork & ashes, etc. The wind having been adverse since, these barges are not yet forward. The Dolphin will be employed this season, in towing, on Lake St. Francis.

From Kingston, we learn that schooners, with full cargoes, were fast pouring in, and the forwarding stores were getting crowded with produce. The damage on the Rideau Canal, at Merrickville, which at first caused some apprehension, turns out not to be serious, though it may be an obstacle to the free navigation of the route for a few days at the beginning.
