p.2 Steamer Kingston - This popular steamer, Captain Kelly, made her appearance at our wharf, on Tuesday last on her way to Montreal. Many of the Captain's friends flocked down to see him, and at his departure, gave him three cheers. The Kingston and her commander, are deservedly popular. She comes out this spring looking as bright as a dollar, and will no doubt command as large a share of public patronage as heretofore. Success attend her, and may she long be under the command of her present gallant captain. [Prescott Messenger 29th]

The steamer Hunter of the Collingwood line arrived at Collingwood on Sunday, 1st inst. at 4 o'clock, with a cargo of freight and passengers from Lake Michigan. The Hunter came via Detour, and Captain Dickson reports a large number of steamers lying at that point waiting for the ice to get out, so as to enable them to proceed on their way to Lake Superior.

p.4 Rideau Canal - We are glad to learn that the break in the dam at Smith's Falls will not interupt the navigation, as with the present height of water there is head for enough navigation without the dam, which is always necessary in low water. The break will be repaired, it is expected, without any interruption to the navigation.
