p.3 Death of James Henderson, of Henderson, Hooker & Co.; from gout and rheumatism. [Montreal Courier]

Notwithstanding that the Harbor of Kingston has been clear of ice for nearly a Fortnight, there have been but two arrivals in port. That of the Steamer America has been already mentioned. Yesterday a small Schooner of about 60 tons arrived from above laden with Flour and Pork. On Tuesday, the Schooner England proceeded upwards, and yesterday four Schooners belonging to Calvin Cook & Co. sailed up.


Of that Beautiful Craft the Brigantine


On Thursday, the first May next, at the Pioneer Company's Wharf, Kingston, this admirable Vessel, with her Rigging, Sails, Boats, Anchors, Chains, Cables and other Appurtenances, will be sold by Public Auction, without reserve.

The Subscriber, in calling the attention of persons connected with the Carrying Trade, to this Sale, feels it quite unnecessary to describe the sailing properties, or other capabilities of a Vessel which since her launch has been the admiration of Seamen on the Canadian waters. She is just in her prime, and well calculated for the general trade of the Lakes.

Sale at 12 o'clock.
