p.3 Customs' Seizure - We learn from the Belleville Intelligencer that the Collector of Customs at that port had seized on Wednesday the steamers City of Kingston and New York for not having the necessary certificate of inspection as to the competency of engineers, etc. Both steamers had taken large parties to Belleville on that day, and the Collector allowed the boats to take home their passengers. The Intelligencer adds: "In consequence of this seizure, for the present at all events, the New York is tied up at Picton, and the City of Kingston is only running by the Collector's special permission. We are glad to see that our officers are endeavouring to take care that the lives of passengers are not to be jeopardized owing to the want of proper appliances and machinery on our steamboats."

Excursion - The steamer Hastings is announced to leave Gunn's wharf at 10:30 on Monday morning for the Camp Meeting Grounds. By reference to the advertisement it will be seen that several eminent speakers will address the afternoon meeting on that day.
