STEAMBOAT FARE DURING THE PROVINCIAL FAIR.
We are requested to state that persons desirous of being present at the Provincial Fair and Agricultural Cattle Show, at Kingston, next month, will be charged only half fare on board the Mail Steamers on Lake Ontario, and that only half fare will be charged for the transport of such cattle as may be taken on board of these steamers. [Colonist]
This announcement on the part of the Lake Mail Steamers completes the arrangement contemplated by the Executive Committee of the Agricultural Association, by which every Canadian steamer, whether plying on the Lake, the River, the Rideau Canal, or the Bay of Quinte, will during the entire week of the Show at Kingston, convey Passengers, and Animals and Articles intended for Exhibition, to and fro, at half the usual rates! We hope to be able to add to this list, very shortly, the Line of the United States Lake Steamers.
