p.2 New Boat For the Royal Mail Line - The new steamer now building at Montreal for the Canadian Inland Navigation Company will be launched on Wednesday next. Capt. C. Hamilton, presently commander of the steamer Kingston, has been appointed Captain of the new vessel, which will be ready to begin her trips by the opening of navigation in the spring. The steamer is constructed of iron, has a large freight capacity, and, when finished, will be in every respect a first class passenger boat.

p.3 Lake Freights - Freights have ruled dull for some time, but have now taken a rapid upward turn. Two engagements have come to our knowledge of 9 cents for grain from Milwaukie to Port Colborne, and 19 cents from Chicago to Oswego. The price of breadstuffs had gone up under the influence of some heavy transfers in the west, but receded again with the advance in freights.

Arrivals - 22.
