p.2 man drowned at Bath - ...While stepping from the Sir James Kempt steamboat, to the wharf, he fell into the water and unfortunately perished....

Important to Forwarders - The following opinion, by the Attorney General of Lower Canada, respecting the necessity of boats loaded with the produce of this Province entering at the custom house of the Coteau du Lac on their way to Montreal, is, in our opinion a highly interesting document - and not withstanding the explicit character of that opinion, we learn that on a recent occasion, Mr. Simpson, the collector at the Coteau, has acted in direct opposition to it, by seizing several boats on their passage downwards, in consequence of their not reporting and paying certain fees, which that gentleman has hitherto been in the habit of indiscriminately exacting from all vessels going down the river.

(followed by a full column of the Attorney General's opinion, which basically says the fees should only be charged on foreign produce, and not that coming from Upper Canada)
