p.1 Traveller had to be taken on marine railway at Niagara for repairs, to be replaced by St. George; Dolphin takes troops from Dickensons Landing to Kingston.

p.2 effects of Rebellion - H.M. schooner Queen patrolling off Navy Island; H.M.S Traveller involved with rebels on schooners near Bois Blanc Island.

p.3 A schooner came into our harbor during a heavy blow last week, from Long Point, U.C. after a cargo of salt. The article is reported to be scarce in Canada, and worth $4 per barrel. [Oswego Commercial Herald]

The harbor being now ice-locked, the Dolphin having on board several companies of the 83rd Regiment, was unable to come up higher than Gananoque; and the Traveller being frozen in, the Troops were compelled to make use of Sleighs in which they arrived from Gananoque on Sunday, and left yesterday for Toronto.


A Meeting of the Stockholders of the Steamer Brockville, will be holden at Kingston, on Monday the 5th day of February next, at McDonald's Hotel, on special business. A general attendance is requested.
