p.2 letter to editor of Montreal Courier, referring to article "Worthy of Notice" in Cornwall Observer re. Mr. McDonnell among canallers; thinks a better job has been done at Welland Canal by "Gallant Major" by arresting trouble-makers. (1/2 column)

p.3 The American Line of Steamboats - A very important addition has been made to the comfort and safety of the passengers by this line, by the substitution of the new and fast sailing steamer Niagara for the old and worn out Oneida. The Niagara is one of the finest vessels of her class, built upon the newest and most approved model, under the personal inspection of Capt. Vandewater, now of New York, so long and so favorably known as the commander of the celebrated United States on the Ontario waters. We are not going to describe the Niagara: our readers can see her themselves, once or twice a week, by watching her advents, and a sight of her equipments is well worth the trouble. She is commanded by Capt. Childs, long of the Oneida, than whom a more obliging gentleman cannot be met with.


The Undersigned having taken out Letters Patent for the exclusive right of "making, constructing, using and vending" an "Improved connected Capstan," and an "Improved Method of loading timber vessels," hereby gives notice that he will sell to parties desirous of using the same, such portions as may be required.


Application to be made to

W. ALLEN GEDDES, Solicitor.

Kingston, July 21st, 1845.
