p.3 The Steam-Boat Kingston - At the meeting of the Stockholders held this day, it was determined that Mr. P. Bonter, of Belleville should be Captain, and Mr. James Watt, Clerk, for the ensuing season. The boat will continue on her old route, between Prescott and the Carrying Place, and go up the Bay from Kingston every Tuesday and Friday. We need not say, we wish the vessel success.

A premium of £5 will be given for the plan most approved of and adopted.

Tenders for the erection of the same or parts thereof, will also be received. For further particulars apply at the above named office.

James Connor, Secretary.
