p.2 A new American steamer, the Lady of the Lake, made her appearance in our harbour yesterday, under the command of Capt. Taylor, with a large pleasure party from Oswego, enjoying the advantage of an experimental pleasure trip. The Lady of the Lake is about one hundred and seventy-five feet in length, with cabins tastefully decorated. The gentlemen's and dining cabins occupy nearly the whole length of the hull. Handsome state-rooms have been fitted up on the promenade, as well as on the lower deck. Her model is that of the North River boats, to which we think her in no way inferior, except in point of speed, and, from the neatness and regularity observed on board, we have no doubt she will become a favorite with the travelling public. This steamer will take the place of the United States, on the route from Oswego to Lewiston, running in conjunction with the St. Lawrence. [Kingston News]
