p.2 Opposition on the Bay of Quinte - In the midst of the angry fight between Steamboat Proprietors on the lake and river, Mr. Weller, the Stage Proprietor, intends to thrust in his oar. He has notified the public, that he will convey passengers between Belleville and Kingston, 50 miles, in four horse coaches, for one dollar! The usual fare is twice that money, the same charged by the steamboats.

p.3 Harbor Improvements - Statistics of Lake Ontario - We are gratified to learn since our notice of this subject on Saturday, that Lake Ontario has not been overlooked by Col. Abert, Chief of the Topographical Bureau, and that Mr. Judson, the U.S. Agent on Lake Ontario, has already been directed to furnish a statement of its commerce, the conditions of its Harbors, and estimates for their completion. Col. Abert has ever been the fast friend of the Lake Frontier, and we hope soon to see under his auspices a revival of our system of Harbor Improvements. [Oswego Times]
