p.2 Kingston, April 16th - The prospects of the coming year's business are cheering to a degree. The contracts already made by the company, for the transportation of produce to Montreal, will employ the whole of their immense means for several months to come; and great as the business was last year, it is expected it will be more than doubled during the present. The Americans are literally preparing to pour their Bread Stuffs into the Montreal Market, in preference to that of New York ! The Storehouses the Company have in Kingston to receive the expected influx, are large and many. They have the whole of the Town Wharf Warehouses, besides one of Mr. Cartwright's; leaving those on Fraser's Wharf to be solely devoted to the up-freight business, which is anticipated to exceed greatly that of last season. Last year the Company expended upwards of £16,000 in Kingston alone, and this year the expenditure will not be less.
