Port of Kingston.

May 18th - Str. Cataract, Oswego, gen. cargo.

Str. Northerner, French Creek, gen. cargo.

Schr. Royal Susan, Oswego, 1 chest harness, W. Mackay.

May 20th - Schr. A.J. Brown, Port Hope, 900 bbls. flour, 10 tons bran, McCuaig & Co., 792 bushels potatoes, A. Fraser.

Schr. Amelia, Aldboro, 14,000 staves, H. & S. Jones.

Schr. W. Wallace, Whitby, 1200 bush. potatoes, to order.

The line of steamers is now complete between Ogdensburgh & Lewiston. The steamer Northerner, Capt. Childs, fills the vacancy occasioned by the withdrawal of the Niagara, and the line now consistes of the Cataract, Bay State, Ontario and Northerner. A line of more magnificent and well managed boats cannot be found on American waters. In point of elegance, speed and safety, as well as for the kind treatment and politeness always shown towards passengers by the officers, these boats are not excelled anywhere. We learn the business thus far has been quite good. Such accommodation for the travelling public should be amply repaid. [Com. Times]
