Capt. N. Johnson,

Propelled by a Low Pressure Engine of 50 Horse Power,

The Only Steam Boat Which Plies Regularly Between Kingston & Oswego.

Will leave Kingston every Monday, Wednesday and Friday Morning, at half past 8 o'clock, and Oswego every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, at same hour, until further notice; and on Sundays will make an extra trip, leaving Kingston at 6 A.M. and returning the same evening.

The Canada, which has run for many years between Toronto and Niagara, is Schooner Rigged, and is well known to be second to none as a safe Sea Boat. She is well calculated to convey both Freight and Passengers, with safety and expedition.

For Freight or Passage, apply to Messrs. Trowbridge & Grant, Oswego, Messrs. Truax & Phillips, Kingston, or to the Captain on board.
