p.2 Port Stanley, Port Talbot (six miles west), and Tyrconnel (ten miles west) - gives exports, imports, etc. [Montreal Gazette]

Our Harbour has been extremely gay and lively during the last few days. The Royal Mail Steamer Princess Royal, Capt. Colclough, arrived here on Wednesday evening from Toronto, on her first trip for the season, having a large cargo of produce on board and a number of passengers. The Gildersleeve, Capt. Bowen, is performing her trips regularly between this port and Prescott. The Telegraph and Express steamers, from the American Shore, pay us regular visits. The Vulcan is also plying on the River.

The Steam Boat Kingston, we understand, commences her trips up the Bay of Quinte today, and will proceed as far as the ice will permit. This vessel has undergone a thorough repair during the winter, and is now in first rate sailing trim.

Our friends on the Bay will be pleased to learn that Captain Harrison is still in command of the Kingston, - who, by his urbanity and punctuality has gained the respect and good will of the travelling public on the Bay route.

The Quebec and Upper Canada Forwarding Company, (says the Quebec Mercury of the 21st ult.,) have advertised the public that they will be prepared at the opening of the navigation, to forward goods, from hence to Bytown, Kingston, and ports on the Ottawa and on the Upper Lakes, without transhipment between Quebec and Kingston. The barges building for this new and much desired line are now in a state of forwardness. They are stout, burthensome craft, constructed on a scale to enable them to pass through the several canals and locks in the course of their route, and will afford great advantages to importers on the Ottawa, at Kingston, and on the Lakes, who will be enabled to avoid the risks, delays and expense of transhipment hitherto incurred in forwarding goods to those portions of the country. The plan is new, but it will be conducted with care and energy, and we have no doubt will, eventually, fully realize the expectations justly formed by the Company.

p.3 Married - On the 1st inst., by the Venerable Archdeacon Stuart, Mr. John Medley, to Miss Agnes Cowen, both of Barriefield.
