p.3 Quick Work - The schooner Julia left the Penitentiary dock on Saturday morning at 11 o'clock with a load of stone for Cobourg, and after unloading the stone, took on a full load of wheat for Kingston, arriving here at three o'clock on Saturday (sic) afternoon.

The Harbour - There was an immense number of vessels in the harbour on Friday and Saturday, and yesterday over 30 were counted. The forwarders have been hard worked to get them unloaded, and it is probable some demurrage will have to be paid out.

The Grain Trade - A despatch from Ottawa says: The Customs Department was informed today that large quantities of grain were lying at Kingston unable to obtain barges for transhipment to Montreal. As Canadian barges could not be had in sufficient numbers the forwarders asked leave to employ American barges temporarily to get over the crush.
