p.2 Kingston Marine Railway - It affords us great pleasure to notice that this highly useful work is this season, like the past, in full and successful operation. The trifling accident that occurred in the launching of the St. George steamer last Spring, did not for a moment daunt the enterprising Stockholders, they having last week again hauled up that fine vessel, which, after undergoing the requisite repairs, was safely lowered into the waters of the St. Lawrence. The public, as well as the Stockholders, owe much to the skill and ability of Mr. McIntyre, in the management of the establishment.

We were happy last week to observe that the Company had laid the keel for a new steamer, intended to replace that well known friend of the Bay of Quinte, the Sir James Kempt, which faithful old servant is now somewhat worn out in the service.

The Kingston Marine Railway, we learn, promises to be excellent stock, and is well worthy the attention of Capitalists. Subscription Books for additional Stock, are open at the Office of the Company, at the Commercial Bank, and at the Office of the Bank of Upper Canada, in Kingston.
