p.3 A Kingston Captain - The Rochester Democrat says: Captain John Saunders and wife, of Kingston, Ont., are visiting friends in this city. Captain Saunders has traded for many seasons between this port and Kingston, is well known to many business men and is credited with having made the fastest passage on record between Charlotte and Kingston, 107 miles in 6 hours and fhirty minutes, during the southwesterly gale on the 5th of December last, averaging about 17 miles per hour, with the large three-masted schooner Oliver Mowat. He is now on his wedding tour. After visiting friends here the happy couple will visit Niagara Falls, Toronto and other points of interest.

Forwarding Company - The annual meeting of this Company was held in Montreal yesterday when the following gentlemen were elected Directors: Messrs. Alex Gunn, M.P., President; James G. Ross, Vice-President; Thomas Cramp, James Swift, and Gilbert Scott.

Another Amalgamation - A telegram from Montreal makes the announcement that the Kingston and Montreal Forwarding Company is to amalgamate with the other amalgamated concerns on a similar basis upon which they joined hands. This will be startling news for Kingstonians.
