p.1 a boat with 2 men aboard goes over falls. [Buffalo Star, July 4th]

p.2 The beautiful Steam Boat Traveller, which is decidedly the fastest boat on the Lake, is now engaged to run between Rochester and the head of the Lake twice a week, calling at this place on her upward trips. The day of her arrival here will be seen in the advertisement. This Boat is built after the English model, and without the immense upper works, is possessed of most superior and complete accommodation. Her draught, when heavily laden, does not exceed 7 feet; and indeed her whole appearance for cleanliness and order, independent of her speed and the extreme regularity of her commander, entitle her to the patronage of the public. [Cobourg Star]

About one o'clock last Thursday evening, the Steam Boat St. George struck on a rock about ( ) miles below French Creek, and broke a hole ( ) her bow. The cargo and furniture were saved without much damage. Capt. Harper was sick in Kingston at the time.



The Subscriber having sold the Steam Boat Queenston to the Messrs. Ives, of Kingston, requests that all claims against the Boat, contracted previous to the 1st inst. may be sent without delay to Mr. Meneilly, Steam Boat Office, Prescott.

All agreements entered into for towing of rafts in season 1836, are to be fulfilled by the present owners at the prices agreed upon.
