p.2 Launch of the Steamer Grecian - The iron steamer Grecian, belonging to the Canadian Inland Navigation Company, was launched yesterday afternoon at Cantin's shipyard. The dimensions of the vessel are as follows: length 183 feet, width 27 feet, depth of hold 10 feet. The Grecian was built by Mr. John Livingstone, and the materials, with the exception of the iron plates, which were brought from the Clyde, were furnished by Mr. Shearer. Capt. C. Hamilton, at present commander of the Kingston, will take charge of the new boat, which will be placed upon the line in the spring. [Montreal Advertiser, Thursday]

-During the month of September the Welland Canal tolls collected at Port Colborne were $15,000, against $25,000 for the corresponding month of 1862. This is another of the results of the reimposition of the Canal tolls; first of all, Canadian trade is seriously injured, and then the revenue suffers.

p.3 Imports - 28.
