p.2 Here & There - The tug Hall's tow has 1,600 tons coal and 18,000 bush. peas, shipped by Richardson.

The tug Thompson brought three barges from Charlotte laden with coal and took back three light.

The steamers of the ferry line will have their furnaces arranged so as to burn coal. This is owing to the high price and scarcity of wood.

The steam barge Indian and consorts have arrived at Collinsby with timber for Toronto. Commodore Frazer will sail again in a few days for Hamilton.

p.3 Elevating Charges - The manager of the Elevating Company, Montreal, says that the forwarders of grain, instead of complaining of affairs in Montreal, might devote their attention to the elevating charges at Kingston, where all the elevators are owned and managed by the Forwarding Companies. The grain being in transit to that port is as much affected by the rate of charge at Kingston as it can be at Montreal.
