p.3 The Steamer Queen Victoria - We confess remissness in not having acquainted the public, that an addition to the conveniences of travelling on the Bay of Quinte, has been made this season, by three gentlemen of Belleville, in purchasing one of Capt. Richardson's Steamers, and placing her on the route between that town and Kingston. The people of Belleville have long wanted a steamboat of their own, and now they have got one. The Queen Victoria is well suited for her new occupation, and we heartily hope her success may be commensurate with the enterprise of her new ownes. She is remarkably well fitted for passengers: her days up are Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays; and her days down are Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. She is commanded by Capt. John Berry, long time in Mr. Bethune's employ.
