p.1 We have been informed that the American Steamers have been fired into from the neighborhood of Prescott and Brockville, and that several shots believed to proceed from a swivel or small cannon were fired at the United States. We regret to hear of such a spirit being kept up, because it only irritates and may lead to retaliation and perhaps murder. The Steamer Telegraph came into our harbor yesterday morning, without being molested.

The Canal steamer Rideau which sunk at the wharf last week was raised between two barges and floated by them to the Railway and hauled up.

The Steamer

QUEENSTON.

Will ply on the Bay of Quinte and River St. Lawrence during the season of 1839 for the purpose of towing Rafts, Schooners, or any other craft. Apply to the Captain on board or at the office of A. Ives, Water Street, Kingston.
