p.3 Garden Island - We are happy to announce that the improvements at Garden Island by the Kingston Stave Forwarding Company, have been so far perfected as to enable the Company to commence the actual despatch of business. A considerable quantity of lumber has been received during the past week, and from the extent of their contracts it is now certain that the original expectations of those embarked in this speculation will be more than realized. Our enterprising fellow townsman, Mr. Cameron, has been indefatigable in promoting the interests of the Company, and we are happy to learn that the success of the project is beyond all doubt.

We are happy to learn that the Custom House Officer at this Port has adopted such liberal arrangements as prove satisfactory to the different Forwarders, and will have a favorable effect upon the trade between here and Ports on the other side of the St. Lawrence. American Goods may be received at other wharves as well as that belonging to the Custom House, and the question upon this subject that has been agitated among our trading friends is thus favorably put at rest.
