p.2 Naval Court Martial - the charges against Commander Drew preferred by Capt. William Sandom. ( 1 1/2 columns)

Among the many buildings and improvements now going on in Town we may mention those of the Kingston Marine Rail Way Company, as among the most important - This enterprising company, together with their other improvements, are now erecting on the premises of this valuable and well managed institution, a block of stone buildings 264 feet long, 2 stories high with large pediments, and will contain convenient and spacious tenements for 32 families. This building is intended for the accommodation of the families of mechanics who are in the employ of the Company.

We regret to learn that as the Steamer Great Britain was on her downward trip, on Friday last, within about fifteen miles of Oswego, one of her engines gave way and was considerably damaged. The noble vessel is now in this harbour and undergoing the necessary repairs. The St. George, as will be seen by Advertisement, has already taken her place on the Oswego route.

p.3 Steam Boat Notice - The Saint George, will, during the remainder of the season, ply as follows: Leave Kingston every Wednesday Morning at 9 o'clock, calling at Oswego, Cobourg, Port Hope, Toronto, Hamilton and Niagara.

Leave Toronto every Monday Morning at 9 o'clock, calling at Port Hope, Cobourg, Oswego, and arrive at Kingston on Tuesday noon.

Wm. Meneilley, Agent.

Lake & River Steam Boat Office,

Kingston, 29th Sept., 1840.
