p.2 The schooner Scotland, laden with 1750 bbls of Flour left this port for Oswego, on Wednesday night last. The Flour is intended for the New York market. We noticed, on Tuesday last, the sailing of the schooner Wm. Gordon, from this port and Port Credit for Oswego, with 1000 bbls Flour. It would seem that the destination of the exports of Flour from this quarter, is to be different this season from that of former years - almost the entire quantity having usually descended the St. Lawrence to Montreal.

These shipments to New York will contribute to the relief of the trade of the place with that city, as formerly the imports were paid for exclusively in specie or Bills of Exchange. The subject is worthy the attention of the Montreal Board of Trade. [Toronto Colonist]
