Schr. Ellen Gilmour, Port Hope, 2052 bbls. flour, Thomas Quigley.

Why Is It? - A gentleman from this city (Hamilton) was at Brockville a few days ago; the Canadian steamer was coming up the river with, we believe only five cabin passengers, and we are not sure whether there were any goods; an American steamer was leaving Ogdensburgh at the same time, having her decks crowded with goods and passengers. Now the country on the Canadian side of the St. Lawrence at that place, and all the way below, is far better than that on the American side. Can any one tell us then the cause of difference in the amount of business. [Hamilton Provincialist]
