p.2 The Inland Navigation Company - The Inland Navigation Steamboat Company have just held their annual meeting at Montreal, and elected a staff of directors. The appointment of a captain to the new boat the Grecian, now in course of completion at Montreal, has caused changes with regard to the officering of the other boats of the line. These changes we may expect, so far as they concern the public, will soon be announced by advertisement. The Company have determined to run their boats to the long wharf lately purchased by Captain Bowen and Mr. Gildersleeve, and which was previously held by Messrs. Anderson & Ford. The mail line boats and Mr. Gildersleeve's steamer the Bay of Quinte alone will touch at this wharf. The change will not be a convenient one for the public, but it doubtless will be for the boats, which can reach the wharf easier than the one at the foot of Princess street. The employees of the Company were engaged on Saturday in removing the stores from the warehouses near the Commercial Wharf to their new destination.
