p.2 The season of navigation is fast drawing to a close. Two of the American Steamboats are laid up, and one of the lake royal mail line. The boats of the river mail line are still running, but their trips are irregular. The forwarding business is yet brisk, a large amount of produce requiring transit to Montreal, as will be seen on reference to our shipping list. The weather, though somewhat variable, continues favorable to forwarding operations.
