p.2 Forwarding - Yesterday morning nine Barges and two Steamers belonging to Messrs. James A. Walker & Co., arrived from Montreal, and by twelve o'clock last night equal to 15,000 barrels of flour were shipped on board of them, and are now on their way to Montreal.

Macpherson & Crane's Steamer Caledonia arrived here on Saturday morning from Montreal, and since then we have had many arrivals of Steamers with Barges in tow. The forwarding business may now be said to be fairly commenced.

The Steamer Quebec, with a tow of Barges, all light, arrived here yesterday from Bytown. We understand, however, that the Canal will not be in a state to permit of loaded boats, or those drawing more than about 3 1/2 feet, to pass before 10 days. [Kingston Argus]
