To Upper Canada Merchants.

THE OTTAWA AND RIDEAU FORWARDING COMPANY have loaded daily a COVERED BARGE, of seventy tons burthen, which will arrive at Kingston on the fifth day, (for in no instance has that time been exceeded throughout the past month.) This Company guarantees the safe delivery of goods there, via the Rideau, and this considered in connection with the present high rates of Insurance, and the uncertainty in regard to time on the St. Lawrence, deserves notice.

The Company maintains a line of twenty Boats on the St. Lawrence, to be applied when required. For freight apply to

E. CUSHING, Agent,

or E. Hacket, at the Exchange Coffee House.

Montreal, Sept. 13th.
