p.3 The new and elegant steamer Brockville, propelled by two engines of 40 horse power each, arrived here last Sunday morning on her first trip. She performed the distance from Brockville to this port, 60 miles, in 5 hours, and it is expected that when her engines have worked some time, her speed will be greatly increased. She has most extensive and excellent accommodations, and will ply between the head of the Long Sault and Kingston, to form a line between here and Montreal, and to convey the Mail on this part of the route, when the arrangements are completed. The Brockville returned on Monday.

The popular Steamer, Sir James Kempt, leaves here tomorrow morning for the Bay.
