p.2 Much Wanted - We are pleased to learn that Capt. Ralph Jones has nearly completed his arrangements for placing a steamer on the route between Toronto and Oswego next season, touching at the following Ports, viz.: Whitby, Oshawa, Darling, Bond Head, Port Hope, Cobourg, Grafton, Colborne, Brighton and Wellington.

From the vast increase of trade between this part of Canada and the United States, (particularly the City of Oswego,) we are satisfied that the Boat will be a paying concern, and we trust Mr. Jones will receive that support from all parties, that the spirited undertaking deserves. While upon this subject, we might also refer to the great quantity of freight that was left at Presque Isle Harbour this fall, causing a very serious loss to the owners, which would not have been the case, had there been a steamer running regularly, twice a week, between the above named ports and Oswego.
