p.2 It is rumored that it is the intention of the owners of the new steamer Ottawa to remove her off the route for which it was said she was built, and that she has already been chartered to ply on the Bay of Quinte the ensuing season. The only reason assigned for the removal of this boat is, that she draws too much water for the Lake. A new boat has been commenced last week which will be launched early in August. [Bytown Gazette]

Note: This fine vessel is now at Kingston, said to be chartered by the Hon. John Hamilton, to run down the St. Lawrence in daylight.

p.3 The Sandusky line of boats to Buffalo have adopted the Hudson River plan, and charge for meals and berths. This is a new arrangement on the Lake, and works well. Fare from Buffalo to Cincinnati is $8.
