p.2 Heavy Castings - We mentioned the other day a statement of the casting of a walking beam at the Dundas Foundry, which weighed six tons, alleged by the Dundas Warder to be the heaviest cast at any like establishment in this country. We have now to state that Mr. Honeyman cast at his Foundry in this city, in February last, a walking beam for the steamer Queen, now fitting out at Garden Island, for Messrs. Calvin & Breck, which weighs over seven tons. The cylinder for the same vessel measures fifty-seven inches in diameter, adapted for a piston of ten feet stroke. Mr. Honeyman's Foundry, so far as the weight of metal cast, therefore, carries off the palm. And, further, Mr. Honeyman is prepared to exceed even his last great achievement by casting machinery for either Mills or Steamers of any required weight, his facilities being such that any order, however ponderous, may be satisfactorily accomplished.

p.3 Imports - 4; Exports - 4.
