p.2 A meeting of merchants, forwarders and traders of Kingston is held to set up an address for Governor-General when he visits.

Lieut. Leary R.N. - We have learned with regret the departure of this officer for England. The zeal and activity with which, while in command of the Tender Bull Frog he ferreted out and broke up the nest of Brigands infesting the Thousand Islands, will long be remembered by the inhabitants of this frontier, for whose safety and protection he ever evinced the most watchful and vigilant care. We wish the gallant officer a safe return to his native country and that he may long enjoy the fruits of his valuable public service.

The Weather - ... One of the Rideau Canal steamers, having 8 barges in tow, arrived at this port from Bytown yesterday, and 18 or 19 more of these barges heavily laden are near at hand, on the same route - affording the best evidence that the ice which has already formed on the Canal is not proof against the activity and enterprise of the Ottawa Company. Our wharves are still covered with Flour and Pork destined for Lower Canada.
