p.2 River St. Lawrence - In spite of the severity of the season, report says that one or two steamers are gradually forcing a passage from Montreal upwards, through the St. Lawrence Canals. The small steamer Prince Albert has recently been on the railway, (after her encounter with the ice in the Rideau Canal,) and will run while the river remains open, between Kingston and Ogdensburgh. A great convenience to travellers.



The Subscriber begs leave to inform the public, that having leased the MARINE RAILWAY at Portsmouth, and purchased Mr. Fisher's interest in the business there, he is prepared to haul out the largest class of Vessels, and do repairs on as reasonable terms as any one in the Province, and he hopes from his experience as a Shipbuilder, to be able to give satisfaction to those employing him.

N.B. A large quantity of Masts, Spars, Oak and Pine Timber on hand.
