Description

p.2 Yankee War Steamer - In the harbor off Kingston Dock Yard, cheek by jowl with Her Majesty's War Steamer Cherokee, Commander Fowell, lies the United States War Propeller Jefferson, Lieut. Fulton, Commander. This fine vessel is undergoing some repairs, preparatory to her descending the Rapids of the St. Lawrence to the seaboard, where her services are required. Another United States War steamer, the Dallas, is also expected at Kingston, and when she arrives, both vessels are to descend together. By removing both these vessels of war from these lakes, it is evident that the American authorities are not apprehensive of any immediate disturbances with the British or Colonial Government.

Launch - The Messrs. Platt's new steamer now on the stocks at Portsmouth, will be launched this day at 3 o'clock.
