p.2 Important to Kingston - Extract from a private letter, from an officer of Rank in London -"...It is stated that extensive fortifications are to be erected in Kingston, which is here understood to be the Key of Upper Canada, but the Naval Establishment is to be reduced. - A report has been sent in to the Admiralty, that the expense of maintaining the number of officers now in various stations in Canada, is wholly unnecessary, and I believe it is determined that the different Vessels shall be laid up in ordinary, and a Lieutenant, a Masters Mate, and one Assistant Surgeon be left in charge at Kingston. The other officers to be placed on half-pay. - This is the rumour of the day..."

THE STEAMER PILOT.

FOR MONTREAL DIRECT.

This well known, favourite low pressure boat, will resume her regular trips on the opening of navigation; leaving Kingston as usual, every Tuesday at 2 P.M., and Montreal every Thursday, at 6 P.M.

The owners beg to intimate that some improvement has been made in her boiler, by which they expect her speed will be very materially increased; also other improvements to the boat in general, thereby adding to her comfort and convenience.

H. & S. JONES.

Kingston, March 15th, 1844.

N.B. - H. & S. Jones forbid all persons giving credit to any one on their account, without written orders from their office.

* The Kingston News of June 20th, 1844 mentions that the Loyalist has been discontinued by Major Richardson.
