p.1 Rideau Forwarding Company - Capt. Brush, the Agent for this Company at Kingston, and our indefatigable townsman, Mr. John Counter, returned home in the early part of the week from an extensive tour of the Canadian Lakes, relative to the business of the Company. They visited in succession, the American ports of Oswego, Rochester, Buffalo, Cleaveland and Detroit, where they established Forwarding Agents; and returned to Kingston by way of Sandwich, London, St. Thomas, Hamilton, Toronto, Port Hope and Cobourg. Their labour at these places have been highly successful. At no period were the commercial prospects of this town as a forwarding depot, in a more satisfactory state than they are at present. Would the wealthy townspeople but aid the efforts of this public spirited Company, all might yet be well.
