p.2 Pleasure Trip to Gananoque - on board Commodore Barrie.
We are glad to perceive that the forwarding business has not entirely left the St. Lawrence; during the past week Messrs. Hooker, Henderson & Co. have had 12 arrivals from Montreal - Messrs. Macpherson & Crane several; while a great many more have passed belonging to Messrs. H. & S. Jones and Messrs. Whiting & Co. [Prescott Herald]
We have had several arrivals from Montreal, both by the River and Canal, and as usual, the Canal route has beat the River route very considerably. The barge Traveller would have been in Kingston several days ago, had not she been detained in unloading wheat at Bytown; as it was, she beat the Barge Francis one day.
The steam boat Cobourg which left for Toronto this day, carries with her the first load of Montreal Goods, to the amount of 100 tons. This splendid steam packet is this season in most admirable order, and is said, by some judicious improvement in her boilers, to have increased her speed nearly 2 miles per hour. She has also changed Captains, being commanded at present by Lt. Harper, R.N. who has quitted the St. George to take charge of the Cobourg. She therefore possesses the advantage of being commanded by one of the most experienced seamen on the lake, who, in addition, blends with his seamanship, the manners of a perfect gentleman. [Whig]
