Shipping News - The date at which insurance policies upon cargoes and craft are held during navigation has now expired, and vessels as well as steamers are accordingly rapidly making preparations to take up winter quarters, notwithstanding which there are quite a number of the former yet engaged and about starting on lengthy voyages from the west to this port. The steamer Bay of Quinte has been laid up, and the Royal Mail line, and other freight and passenger steamers, plying on the St. Lawrence and canals, are shortly expected to do the same.
