Postponement of the Sale

Of the Brigantine


This Vessel having wintered on the upper lakes, and the opening of the Welland Canal having been deferred till the first week in May, the advertisement appointing her sale for the first day of May is withdrawn, and the sale unavoidably Postponed till Thursday the 15th May, when it will be held, as formerly announced, at the Pioneer Company's wharf, Kingston, at 12 o'clock noon.

The Public are informed that the following are the arrangements for the Season:

The Commodious and Fast Low Pressure Steamers

HIGHLANDER, Capt. Stearns.

Will Ply Daily from Kingston to Coteau du Lac, (45 miles from Montreal,) leaving Kingston every morning, at 7 o'clock, arriving at Coteau Du Lac early the same evening, from which place Passengers are conveyed to the Cascades in Stages, (on a planked road;) sleep on board the Steamer Chieftain, and arrive in Montreal the next morning at 7 o'clock.


From Coteau Du Lac, the Boats leave every evening, on the arrival of the Mail and Passengers from Montreal; and reach Kingston the following afternoon, in time for Passengers to take the Steamers for any Port on Lake Ontario.

The Boats pass through the splendid Long Sault Canal, the magnificent rapids of the St. Lawrence, and the Lake of the Thousand Islands by day-light, affording passengers the most desirable, safe, and expeditious route between Kingston and Montreal.

The above Steamers call at the following places: Gananoque, Brockville, Maitland, Prescott, Ogdensburgh, N.Y., Matilda, Williamsburgh and Cornwall.

Parcels and Luggage, as well as money packages, at the risk of the owners, unless booked as Freight.

The new steamer London left Chippewa for Buffalo on Saturday last. A gentleman who was on board at the time informs us that the engine worked admirably, and that in speed the London outstrips even the Emerald, and that she afforded every indication of proving a first rate sea-boat. She is a magnificent vessel, in model, equipment and power, and under the command of such an experienced officer as Capt. Van Allen, can hardly fail to prove first favorite with those who are led by business to traverse the waters of Lake Erie. [Niagara Chronicle]
