p.2 The Dock Yard at Kingston is forthwith to be put on a full establishment, and an Admiralty Commissioner will assume the command, under whose superintendence three Iron Steam Frigates, of the largest class, are to be built. Mr. Tucker, the Admiralty Builder, the architect who built the Cherokee, arrived out in the Hibernia, and by this day's steamer is actually at his post in Kingston.

p.3 Arrival - The steamer Quebec, belonging to the Quebec Forwarding Company, arrived here on the 11th inst, having left on the 8th with the first importations of Spring Goods this season. The Quebec experienced a great deal of difficulty in getting through the Grenville Canal, in consequence of the water overflowing the locks, but through an indomitable spirit of perseverance, Capt. Meyers finally succeeded in getting through. Our business now with the Lower Province, in up freight, is fairly commenced.


The Subscribers will be prepared to forward Goods and Produce to and from Montreal, during the present season, at reasonable rates, and will be in readiness to receive FREIGHT for immediate dispatch on the 18th instant.

They trust that the Trading community, of Canada East and West, will favour them with a share of their patronage.

BOG, DICKSON & Co., Kingston.
