p.2 Free Trade - an Editorial talks about Kingston's advantages as a port - what is to prevent a Kingston capitalist from building merchant vessels to carry flour to England or the West Indies; the canals are now large enough to pass vessels with 2500 barrels of flour?

p.3 To the Editor of the C. & G. - discusses free trade, its effects on shipping, the need for improvements not only to canals but to the St. Lawrence River - signed by a Master in the Upper Lakes, dated at Kingston, 21st September, 1846. (a full column).

The Corporation - (part) The Harbour Bill was then taken up, the discussion of which occupied the remainder of the evening. Much time was wasted in irrevelant speechifying, and unnecessary proposing of resolutions. The result, however, was that the last Bill published was rescinded, the first one passed, and the tariff of fees reduced. The Bill, as amended, was ordered to be printed. [Argus]
