p.2 The River is open to Long Island, but the ice still remains in the Harbour and Bay.

The Steamboat accommodation on the River and Lake this season will surpass any previous period. The Great Britain has been repainted, and adorned in the finest style. The St. George, whose advertisement appears today, is in the highest state of equipment and beauty. The Commodore Barrie, splendid and vigorous as the morning, is also preparing to "walk the waters like a thing of life." The high character gained by these Boats and their respective Captains, is so well established and so widely known, as to render all prolonged praise altogether superfluous. Besides these, the United States, the William the Fourth, and the United Kingdom, with other Boats, will traverse our inland waters, and competition, were there no other motive, will ensure ample accommodation and comfort to the travelling public.

The Britannia, Sir James Kempt, and the Kingston, will sail on the Bay and River.

From Kingston to Toronto & Niagara.

This very beautiful and superior Steam Boat is propelled by an Engine of 90 horse power; she is the only low-pressure schooner-rigged steam vessel on the lake, and as a sea boat, there are none to surpass if to equal her.

No Luggage or Parcels taken charge of, unless booked and paid for. All freight payable on delivery.
