p.3 The following Forwarding Lines are removing to Kingston from Prescott and Brockville, having concluded an agreement with the Ottawa and Rideau Company, to have their barges towed to Kingston from Montreal, by the Company's steam vessels: - Messrs. Hooker & Henderson, Hackett & Dickenson, Murray & Co. Prescott, and H. & S. Jones, Brockville.

That very superior steam vessel, the Coburg, left Kingston on Tuesday evening on her first trip up the Lake this season. This handsome boat is in fine fig; and continues under the command of Lt. Harper, R.N. - the Major commanding the Queen's Volunteer Marine Artillery, a corps which he organized and which has proved so eminently useful to Kingston, during the late winter.We mentioned some time ago that the Coburg had been chartered by the Hon. John Hamilton, and that it was the intention not to allow her to go below Kingston.
