p.2 Shipping News - The harbour begins to assume the appearance of business, and the sound of the elevators, music sweeter to the commercial ear than that of "the singing birds," is once again "heard in the land." The Montreal Transportation Company are busy in unloading arrivals freely, and have already dispatched one grain consignment to Montreal - the tug Glide, which left last night with two barges containing 32,000 bushels of wheat, being the first dispatch of the season. The following have arrived at the M.T. Company's wharf since the 19th instant:- The G.L. Wrenn, from Milwaukee, with 15,000 bushels of wheat; the propeller Dominion, from the same port, with 16,500 bushels of wheat; the Knight Templar, from Milwaukee, with 17,500 bushels wheat; the Jennie Mullin, from Chicago, with 13,014 bushels of corn; and the Elvina, from Milwaukee, with 17,300 bushels of wheat. The steamer Alice will commence running between Kingston and Ottawa on Monday next.

The Rideau Canal - The Rideau Canal will be opened for business on Monday next. Some repairs of the Kingston Mills' locks have retarded their opening thus far, but it is expected that tomorrow will see them completed.
