p.3 Opposition in Forwarding - We have heard it more than rumored, that the proprietors of the Royal Mail Line intend this fall to commence an opposition to the General Forwarders, by putting on a number of tug steamers and barges between Kingston and Montreal, making our good old town a place of transhipment. Much as we desire to see Kingston florish, we trust that it will not be at the expense of the General Forwarders, to whom it stands indebted for the small share of business remaining, after the shameful abandonment of the Government. Perhaps the whole rumor is nothing but a feeler and put forth accordingly.
