p.3 Inland Navigation Bill - The following mode of evading the provisions of this act has lately been put into practice in the Eastern District. Boats from Ogdensburgh laden with Genesee flour pass down the river, and after entering at the Custom House of Coteau du Lac in Lower Canada, return and dispose of their cargo in this Province. Flour has in consequence been sold as low as 17 s 6 d per bushel at Cornwall and its vicinity.


Steam Vessel will start from Kingston for York and Niagara on the 1st, 11th and 21st days of each month, and from Niagara for Kingston on the 5th, 15th and 25th days of each month with as much punctuality as the nature of the Lake Navigation will admit of.
