p.3 Notice - The Steam-Boat Sir James Kempt, Capt. Gilderslieve, will leave Kingston at 10 o'clock on Sunday morning, for the Camp Meeting Ground, Ernest Town, and return in the Evening. June 16th.

Emigrants - We last week noticed the arrival of a vast number of Emigrants at Quebec, and since that period several hundreds of them have reached Kingston. In the Steam-Boat Alciope, on Friday, there were about 300, and the Queenston, on Sunday, contained nearly the same number. They are principally from England, and appear to be persons who will prove to be a valuable acquisition to our population. We learn, that on the passage between Prescot and this place a single instance of intoxication or quarelling did not occur among them; and indeed, that their whole demeanour was such as to merit the entire approbation of the Captains of the respective vessels.
