p.2 Steamboat Inspection - The Board of Steamboat Inspectors met on Thursday to appoint a successor to Mr. McAuslan, who from ill health is obliged to resign, and the meeting resulted in the appointment of Mr. J. Taylor, who we are told passed a most creditable examination. The community have reason to be pleased that the Government have appointed an old and most deserving citizen, and we feel sure that he is the right man in the right place.

Shipping News - The schooner Gazelle arrived this morning from Oswego, being her second trip this season. This is one of the fastest schooners on the Lakes, and Capt. Dix, who sails her, knows her points and how to make the most of them. She will proceed at once to Brockville to load with lumber for Oswego. The sloop Greyhound arrived this morning with plaster from Oswego; she will discharge and proceed to Shannnonville for a cargo of cedar for Cape Vincent. The schooner Flying Scud has proceeded to Brockville for a cargo of matches purchased at that place by a firm of this city. The propeller Brantford touched here this morning on her way from Hamilton to Montreal with a general cargo.
