p.3 The Kingston Marine Railway - It is gratifying to observe the degree of activity and enterprise with which matters are conducted at this important and interesting establishment. The Company have at present on the stocks 4 Vessels, one of them a fine Steamer, intended to succeed that old and faithful public servant the Sir James Kempt, on the Bay of Quinte route. In the course of the winter no less a sum than £1000 has been paid to farmers in the vicinity for timber. It has often occurred to us, that a Steam Flouring Mill might be erected with advantage, in connection with the Railway. The Company to purchase the adjoining Foundry of Mr. Yarker, and also attach a Saw Mill, all of which one Engine of 30 Horse Power would be more than sufficient to carry into full operation.
