p.2 856 bushels of damaged wheat sold to Mr. Berry for 35 cents per bushel.

A strange steamer was in the harbor on Saturday. She was a small vessel of light draft, named the Citizen, commanded by Capt. Smith. She has a direct acting engine, with oscillating cylinder, a most compact piece of machinery. Her boiler is upright, with perpendicular tubes, and, like the engine, takes up but little room. This neat little vessel is intended to run as a market boat between Picton and Napanee, and may probably make trips between Kingston and Napanee. The town of Picton has granted a subsidy to induce the boat to run between the towns, and so contribute to each others's convenience and prosperity. She will connect with the Montreal and Bay of Quinte steamers, and with the steamer Bay of Quinte, so that dealers in Napanee can obtain their goods from Montreal, and send their produce in return entirely by water.

Imports - 26.
