p.2 The Ottawa River destined to be the channel of communication between Montreal and the north-west. [Montreal Herald]

We have to congratulate our readers, upon the removal of the busines of the Canada Inland Forwarding and Insurance Company, to Prescott. We entertain not the smallest doubt, but that all parties concerned, will speedily discover the advantages and conveniences arising from concentrating, as much as possible, this branch of business; and certainly, (we may feel a little partial,) Prescott appears in every respect, better adapted for the general transhipping port than Brockville.

Hiram Norton, Esq. has been appointed Agent for the Company.

A dissolution has taken place in the Forwarding establishments lately carried on here under the firm of Crane, Hooker & Co. - Messrs. Hooker and Henderson being about to re-establish a separate concern, under the firm of Hooker & Henderson as heretofore. [Prescott Vanguard]

The Steamboats belonging to the estate of the late Robt. Drummond Esq. were purchased at private sale by the Ottawa Forwarding Co., a day or two before the day of public auction. It is intended we learn to have but one Forwarding Company on the Rideau during the ensuing season, that of the Ottawa; a good deal of stock in the Company is however expected to be shortly owned in Kingston. The splendid steam boat, St. George will be brought to the hammer early in March, (see advertisement) and we should not be surprised to hear, that it is purchased by the Company to take goods and passengers from Kingston to their place of destination.


On Monday, the 2nd Marchm 1835, at noon, will be positively sold to the highest bidder, the superior and well known

Steam Packet St. George

and all her appurtenances. Intending purchasers will obtain every information and have an opportunity of examining the Boat and furniture by applying to the subscriber.

Sale to take place on board the Boat moored alongside Mr. Strange's wharf.


Kingston, Jan. 17th, 1835.
