p.2 As no sale was effected of the steamer Hamilton last Saturday, she will be run between this port and Oswego, under the command of Capt. Gaskin of the provincial marine. It is expected that she will be ready in ten days or a fortnight. Several of our Townsmen have expressed a desire to charter her for this route, and there can be no doubt but that she will pay well. There is no reason to expect that she will receive any obstruction at Oswego. Several influential persons of that port have engaged to support the boat.
The undersigned hereby give notice, that they have entered into Copartnership, for the purpose of Forwarding Goods and Produce, to and from Montreal, in Lower Canada; and Kingston, in Upper Canada, via the Rideau and Ottawa Canal, and River St. Lawrence.
They are building a number of new Decked Barges, which, with their former stock of Boats, will enable them to give property the utmost despatch.
The business at Montreal will be conducted under the firm of H. Jones & Co.; and at Kingston H. & S. Jones.
They solicit a share of the public patronage, and pledge their personal exertions to give satisfaction.
Montreal, March 26th, 1839.
