p.2 Canada Trade - Montreal as a shipping port. [Herald]
p.3 The business of navigation has fairly commenced. On Saturday morning the Steamer Gildersleeve proceeded down the River to Dickenson's Landing, and in the evening the Princess Royal entered the port from Toronto. Yesterday the first flour laden vessel entered the Harbor - the Schooner Anne Jane Brown, with a full cargo from the Port Hope Mills. A number of vessels laying in Port awaiting for a favorable wind, proceeded upwards this morning. Of the former we noticed the Schooners Mohawk, Bagot, Sarnia, Wm. Penn, and the barque Eleonora. The Brock, Canada, England, and Ontario are ready or nearly so, for starting, and others will be prepared to follow in a few days.
The Princess Royal leaves port this evening for Toronto, and it is said that the American steamer Niagara will come up from Ogdensburgh and proceed to Oswego and Rochester. The season arrangements for the several lines of steamers will not be acted upon, we believe, until on or about the fifteenth. Meantime, there will be one boat on the river, one on the lake, and an American steamer observing regular trips. The names of these boats are as above.
Ferry Between Kingston and Wolfe Island
The Public are informed that the steamer Charlotte will ply as a ferry between Kingston and Wolfe Island, and vice-versa, touching at Garden Island, until the new steamer preparing for the route is finished. The Charlotte will commence her trips on Monday morning next, at the usual hours.
