p.2 Northern Transportation Company - According to an article in the Buffalo Courier it is said that the report current a few weeks ago, relative to the purchase of the insolvent Northern Transportation Company's propellers (thirty-one in number) by Messrs. Hugh Allan & Co., of Montreal, has proved correct, and that the final arrangements have been made for the transfer of the property. The Messrs. Allen having ownership of nineteen ocean steamships, through freight, by the change in the line, can be carried from the far west to the English market at a much cheaper rate than before, and at rates equally as low as that transhipped by New York. It is also said that this change will considerably effect the business transacted at Kingston, all the necessary lightening being effected in connection with the railway at Prescott Junction.
