The new and fast sailing Steam Boat


Henry Lelievre, Master,

Will for the remainder of the season leave the Trent every Monday and Thursday at 5 o'clock A.M.; and after touching at Belleville, Sophiasburgh, Hallowell and Bath, arrive at Kingston in the afternoon of the same day.

Will leave Kingston for Prescott every Monday and Thursday evening, soon after her arrival from the Bay, and arrive at Prescott in time for Passengers to take the Montreal stages the following morning. Will leave Prescott for Kingston and the head of the Bay, every Tuesday and Friday, after the arrival of the Montreal stages, and arrive at the head of the Bay the following afternoon. The John By is propelled by one of Messrs. Bennet & Henderson's low pressure engines of 75 horse power, and has proved herself a first rate sea boat, and one of the fastest on the river. She has a large dining cabin with thirty berths, and a ladies' cabin with sixteen berths, neatly arranged for the accommodation of travellers, who may depend on every attention being paid to their comfort.

For freight or passage apply to the Master.

Kingston 25th Sept., 1832.


Lake Ontario Steam Boat

The New and Fast Sailing Steam Packet,


Captain Charles M'Intosh,

Propelled by a Low Pressure Engine of 100 Horse Power.

Will run for the remainder of the season, or until the 1st of November, should not timely notice be given to the contrary, as follows, viz.:

Will leave Prescott for Niagara, after the arrival of the Montreal Stages, on the mornings of the following days, viz.:

Will leave Prescott for Niagara every Saturday, after the arrival of the Montreal Stages, and arrive at Niagara on Monday evening, touching, as usual, at Brockville, Gananoque, Kingston, Cobourg, Port Hope, York, and Burlington Bay, or Hamilton.

Will leave Niagara every Tuesday morning, touching, as usual, at York, Port Hope, Cobourg, Kingston, Gananoque, and Brockville.

The William IV, as anticipated, has proved herself a first rate Sea Boat, and a fast sailer; it is needless, therefore, to say any thing in her commendation, as the Public have had an opportunity of judging for themselves. The proprietors, however acknowledge, that the short time allowed this Vessel heretofore, (say five days, including all stops) to accomplish a distance of 650 miles, has, in a few instances, owing to casaulties (sic), caused irregularities in her arrivals and departures, at the different Ports; they now, however, assure the Public, that the extension of time, from five to seven days, will enable her, hereafter, to be punctual.

N.B. - Such Newspapers as have been requested to insert the arrangement for the William, dated the 14th of July, 1832, will please discontinue it, and insert the above in its stead, until the 1st of November next, and send their accounts to A. Jones, Esq. of Prescott, for payment.

Prescott, Aug. 29th, 1832.

Lake Ontario.

The United Kingdom has a large dining room, with 18 state-rooms, and a Ladies' cabin, with 28 berths, and the public may depend upon every attention being paid to the comfort of travellers.

Prescott, September 15th, 1832.
