-A New Establishment - The Messrs. McArthur, enterprising lumber merchants, have established a timber depot at Collins bay. This convenient and sheltered bay affords unequaled facilities for unloading and transhipment of cargoes, and these gentlemen are improving on its advantages. They have sunk cribs, and erected works for unloading timber from vessels, and this season will enter largely into this trade from the upper lakes, raft the timber here, and ship it in that shape for Quebec. The establishment of this new industry is an important matter in this quiet village.
