p.1 Trial of Wm. Anderson for arson - of Sir Robert Peel. (7 1/2 columns)

p.3 Daily Line of Steamboats between Oswego and Niagara - A project is on foot to establish immediately a daily line of boats between this place and Niagara, to run in conjunction with the Utica and Oswego canal packet boats. Sir John Hamilton, a wealthy and enterprising citizen of Upper Canada, who controls most of the British boats on Lake Ontario, arrived here on Saturday in the steamer Cobourg from Kingston, in the furtherance of the project. He proposes, we understand, to unite with Oswego and furnish one half of the boats and means necessary to carry out the arrangements for a daily line, for the especial accommodation of passengers. We also understand that a line will be forthwith established, unrivalled of course, by any other route between the east and Niagara, as regards time, comfort or pleasure. [Oswego Comm. Herald]
