The Ottawa & Rideau Company - we are happy to learn that Messrs. M'Pherson & Crane, notwithstanding the loss their wharves and warehouses, have already engaged premises to carry on their extensive forwarding business. The Corporation of Kingston met specially the day after the fire and taking into consideration that to the Ottawa & Rideau Company Kingston mainly is indebted for its present prosperity, very properly and very handsomely placed the town wharf at the entire disposal of Messrs. M'Pherson & Crane. On this wharf these gentlemen have already erected temporary sheds for the reception of the myriads of barrels of produce, still coming down the lake for Montreal, and as the season advances, and these stuffs get shipped, they will shortly be enabled to put up sufficient warehouses for the up freight business. In fact, with the gigantic means at the disposal of the Company, however great their loss has been, Messrs. M'Pherson & Crane will still lead the forwarding business. The Company's barges are expected to arrive via the Rideau Canal, in the early part of the week. [Whig]
