NOTICE.

A Meeting of the Stockholders of the Steam Boat Sir James Kempt, will be held on board the Boat, on Wednesday the 27th inst. at 12 o'clock Noon.

H. GILDERSLEEVE, Agent.

Kingston, 23rd February, 1839.

A new Steamboat has been commenced in this place by the Hon. John Hamilton, which it is expected will overcome every obstacle between this and the foot of the Long Sault; she is to be 190 feet long, having about 26 feet beam, and to be propelled by two very powerful low pressure engines. She is to be built under the immediate superintendance of Mr. L. Hilliard, formerly Captain of the steamer William IV, and is intended to ply between this place and Coteau du Lac. She will not be ready before the spring of 1840. [Prescott Sentinel]
