p.3 Naval Appointments - We notice the following Naval Appointments officially Gazetted in the last number of the Woolwich Gazette: -

Commander W.N. Fowell, to command the Mohawk, in the Lakes of Canada.

Lieut. W.R. Davies, to the Mohawk.

Lieut. J. Tysson, to command the Montreal in the Lakes of Canada.

Purser J. Marsh, to the Mohawk, in the Lakes of Canada.

Clerks in Charge - A.F. Eggar to the Experiment; T.S. Heywood to the Montreal.

Will the Editor of the Chronicle say how the Contracts are given out for the transportation of Emigrants hence to Toronto: if by public contract, they should be advertised now, that persons owning boats or vessels might make the necessary arrangement, but if they are quietly disposed of, then perhaps it is better to say no more about it. A SUBSCRIBER.

The Steam-propeller Adventure arrived here last Sabbath morning with a cargo of goods for the Merchants of this Town. This is the first arrival we have had direct from Montreal, and the Merchants are highly pleased, as well with the rate of freight as with the condition of the goods. Instead of torn bales, broken boxes, and unhooped hogsheads, as used to be the case, the merchandize was all in as good order as when it left the warehouse, a fact of itself equal to a heavy percentage. [Niagara Chronicle]

Notice - The Montreal Mail Steamer Gildersleeve will make her last trip on Monday next the 4th instant, leaving the Commercial Wharf at 9 a.m., for Dickinson's Landing.

Kingston, Saturday, 2nd December, 1843.
