p.2 Freighting Business With Canada - We learn that the Lake Ontario Steamboat Company are doing a very large business in transporting bonded goods, chiefly merchandize, to Canada. The Admiral has taken, in the three trips which she has made the present season, more than the whole amount carried during any previous year. The agent has paid to the railroad company, charges on those goods to the amount of $1800. This business is a large and profitable one, and our Oswego friends usually have the largest proportion of it. It is not unlikely that once this trade begins to move in this direction, the steam will be kept up. For all goods destined above Port Hope, this route is as favorable as any other. [Rochester Democrat, March 26th]

It will be seen by advertisement, that the Schr. Rose, of Toronto, Capt. Hamilton, is expected to sail about the 1st May to Owen's Sound, calling at Port Stanley, Port Sarnia, Saugeen, etc. Parties intending to go to the new settlement at Saugeen may find it to their advantage to embrace this opportunity of transit. The Rose has been all recently refitted, and is well adapted for either freight or passengers. [Globe]
