p.3 New Forwarding Line On The St. Lawrence - We beg to call public attention to the Advertisement of Messrs. Mathie, Easton, & Co., of Brockville, which will be found in another column. It may be worthy the attention of the Mercantile Community to perceive that the freight upwards, under the proposed arrangement is to be charged by weight, and not by measurement, as has hitherto been the general custom; which practice, especially as regards light goods, has been the subject of many complaints for some years past.


New Forwarding Line

Via The River St. Lawrence,

To and From

Montreal, Brockville, Kingston

And the Intermediate Places.

Ross, Matthie & Co., at Montreal

Easton, Ross & Co., at Brockville & Kingston.

With new and improved Barges, will be prepared at the opening of the Navigation, to give Passage to Emigrants, and to transport Property of all descriptions with increased safety and dispatch.

Freight upwards charged for by Weight at rates reduced below the Tariff Prices exacted for years past.

The Subscribers, from the facilities which they possess, and their determination to do the busines intrusted to them satisfactorily, trust that they will command and merit a share of Public support.

(Signed) Matthie, Easton, & Co.

James Ross.

Henry Easton.

January 1st, 1841.

Beat This Who Can - The extensive range of Stone Buildings on the premises of the Kingston Marine Railway Company, were erected by Messrs. J. & T. Milner, in 37 working days.
