Sept. 12, 1848
We are happy to announce to the public that the Steam Ferry Boat Company have made arrangements to have the steamer Farmer make two trips per week from Kingston to Cape Vincent - on Wednesday and Thursday evenings at 7 o'clock, and leaving Cape Vincent on Thursday and Friday mornings at 3 o'clock. The regular trips to and from Wolfe Island will remain as usual by this arrangement. Persons wishing to spend a day at Cape Vincent can do so; by leaving Kingston on Wednesday evening they arrive early in the morning at the Cape, and can remain at the Cape till Friday morning at 3 o'clock, and be here at 6 o'clock in the morning. The American farmers can take advantage of this plan and bring over their produce. It is hoped the Customs department will give every accommodation consistent with duty.
For a visit to Cape Vincent, the Steam Ferry Boat Farmer, Capt. Dawson, will take you on Wednesdays and Thursdays, at 7 o'clock P.M.
The American steamer Rochester has been withdrawn from the line of American Steamers that run from Lewiston to Ogdensburgh, and is now running from Lewiston to Hamilton.
The prop. Scotland, with 5000 bushels wheat, was sunk this morning, at the mouth of the Beauharnois Canal. Cargo fully insured. This furnishes another proof of the many sad disasters that occur to those who will not learn from experience to make Kingston the depot for transhipment.
Capt. J. Dawson,
from the 13th Sept., will leave Kingston for
