p.2 This new purchase of the Kingston Merchants, the nucleus we trust of another Kingston Forwarding Company, arrived on Thursday last in our harbor, under the charge of her new commander, Capt. Howard. The St. Lawrence is not a large vessel, but her size and build are remarkably well suited to the River and Bay Trade. During the coming winter, she will be handsomely fitted up with Upper Saloon and State Rooms, and in every respect made fit to be a First Class passage vessel. In the present undecided state of next year's steamboat operations, it is impossible to say on what particular route she may be placed. We hope however that Kingston may be one of her termini.

On Monday last, the Charles Noble schooner of Fairport, cleared from Mr. Salmoni's wharf in this town, carrying between 4000 and 5000 bushels of wheat, the produce of the townships in our immediate neighborhood. This, we believe, is the eighth cargo of wheat shipped from this vicinity during the season. In spite of the "ruin and rapid decay" in Canada, we in the West contrive to advance steadily, and as soon as the incubus shall be removed, we will go ahead with rapid strides.
