p.2 New Steamer - The new steamer Ontario, belonging to the American mail line, will arrive here today on her first downward trip.

Had not the line been broken by the disastrous wreck of the Niagara, the Rochester could now have been withdrawn for the route between Hamilton and Lewiston; as it is she must remain until the Niagara is prepared to resume her old place.
