p.2 Ship Yards etc. at Brockville - On Monday last we took a walk to the Ship Yards. Mr. Parkin has on the stock, the Albion, which has been hauled out and thoroughly repaired - to be launched in a few days, and to be employed for the coming season on the St. Lawrence between Kingston and Montreal, principally, as we understand, in towing barges, but also fitted up for passengers. Also a new and substantially built barge of a large size, calculated to carry 2000 Barrels of Flour, to be employed on the St. Lawrence, built for Mr. Greer of Kingston. - The Dart which was wrecked a little below Kingston last fall, has received complete new upper works, and otherwise thoroughly repaired. These vessels are nearly ready to be sent off the stocks. Mr. Parkin has also in progress a large steamer for Messrs. H. & S. Jones, 160 feet in length, to be employed when finished, in the trade of the St. Lawrence and the Lakes. The Schooner Jessie, belonging to Mr. Parkin, is lying at the wharf, ready to proceed upwards as soon as the weather will permit.

Then we have Mr. Notter's Yard displaying considerable activity. A large Barge of 2000 barrels burthen, intended for the Messrs. McCuaig, of Kingston, is nearly ready for launching; also, several Barges, in progress of repair. There are lying in the harbor a large schooner, the Edith, nearly ready for operation, and a variety of small craft. On the whole the yards and harbor exhibit an animating scene, and the prospect of a fair season's business lies before the Forwarders.

A very considerable portion of the business of the country will the ensuing season be done on the St. Lawrence. We learn that it is the intention of Forwarders to bring all their large boats and barges up the St. Lawrence, while the smaller steamers will be kept on the Rideau.

The accommodation to travellers on our frontier will be much more ample than formerly, if one may judge from present prospects. The Mail Line from Kingston to Lachine will have four boats on the route. Four boats will be employed on the U.S. line between Ogdensburgh and Lewiston. All these will call regularly at this Port. Then there are the Albion, Express, and a variety of smaller steamers whose motions will be regulated by circumstances. We have not learned what is intended in relation to the line between Ogdensburgh and Montreal, which was in operation part of last season. [Brockville Recorder April 22nd]

p.3 The Lake Steamers - The advertisement which appeared in our last issue with respect to the mail steamers was altogether premature. It was simply intended that the alteration in the time of leaving this port should be announced to the public; instead of which, by an error, a transcript of the advertisement of last year was inserted. The mail steamers leave this port at 5 o'clock, P.M. or immediately upon the arrival of the steamers from below. The arrangement for the season will be announced in due time. [News]
