p.2 breach in St. Lawrence Canal repaired; by next Monday the Gildersleeve should be able to pass through for Kingston. [Cornwall Observer]

p.3 New Day Boat - The Messrs. Ives have placed their new steamer Frontenac on the Bay of Quinte, to run in place of the Kingston which is withdrawn from the route. The Frontenac is very elegantly fitted up, and is proved to have first rate speed. She is commanded by Capt. George Ives, who pays every attention to passengers. The proceeds of the Boat's first trip were given towards the erection of an Episcopal Church at Consecon, and the following letter of acknowledgement therefore was addressed by the Church Wardens to Capt. Ives.

Carrying Place, Aug. 25, 1843.

Sir; The undersigned, the Committee superintending the erection of a Protestant Episcopal Church in the village of Consecon, in the District of Prince Edward, beg leave to offer you their sincere thanks for the very handsome manner in which you handed over to the Hon. R.C. Wilkins the sum of 5 Pounds 5 Shillings, being the proceeds of your first trip up the Bay of Quinte, in the steamer Frontenac, on Thursday last, in aid of the funds for building the said Church. Impressed with a strong sense of your kindness and generosity on this occasion, the Committee feel it but due to you and to themselves thus publicly to record this acknowledgement of their gratitude.

Philip George Bartlett,

Robert C. Wilkins,

Joshua M. Cadman,

John Young,

E.D.S. Wilkins.

to Capt. George Ives, of the Frontenac.
