p.2 Quick Work - We have occasionally noticed short passages performed by some of our lake craft, but we do not know that we have had to record a better instance of despatch than the following. Messrs. Calvin, Cook & Co.'s brig Liverpool, Mair, lately made a trip from Port Dalhousie to Kingston, discharging 14,000 feet square oak and returned to that port in two days and twenty three hours. This trip and the previous one, the Liverpool performed in somewhat less than nine days.

Quick Sailing - The Barque Grampus, of this port, of 400 tons, left Stony Creek on Monday night last, heavily loaded with square timber, for the foot of Long Island, 20 miles below Kingston, a distance of 240 miles, and arrived there on the evening of the following day, at 7 o'clock, making the distance in less than 23 hours. She was unloaded there, when she left Long Island on Thursday Evening, and arrived in our Harbor, with all sails set, glorious sight, on Thursday noon, having accomplished her trip upwards in less than 18 hours. This we believe is one of the shortest trips ever performed on the lake. [Hamilton Gazette]

p.3 Kingston Marine Railway Company - The Stockholders in the Kingston Marine Railway Company are hereby notified that a half-yearly dividend of 3% on the stock paid up, has been declared, and is now payable by

James Fraser, Treasurer.
