p.2 The Navigation - The Chief Justice makes her trips in accordance with the advertisement put forth some weeks since, and we learn that the America, Capt. Kerr, will leave this port for Rochester on Wednesday next, "wind and weather permitting." [Toronto Express]

Through Freight and Passage Line!



In 33 Hours, without Transhipment.

On the opening of the Navigation, the Subscribers will place the following New, Fast, and Staunch Steamers, on the route between Hamilton and Montreal direct, calling at Toronto, and other intermediate Ports, - leaving Hamilton every alternate day, and connecting at Kingston with Their Freight and Passage Line, on the Rideau Canal, and at Montreal, with their Daily Freight Line, to Ports on Lake Champlain and New York:-

PASSPORT Captain Bowen.

NEW ERA Captain Maxwell.

COMET Captain Taylor.

To which will be added, on the 1st of July, another magnificent Boat now being built in Montreal.

This Line is composed entirely of NEW STEAMERS, built expressly for the Lake and River Navigation; elegantly fitted up with State Rooms, Upper and Lower Saloons, etc.; and will be found by Passengers to possess unequalled advantages in point of speed and comfort, and at the same time affording to Merchants the best faculties for the regular transport of Produce to Montreal, etc., and Merchandize upwards.

The days of sailing will be made known in a future advertisement.


James Street Wharf,

Hamilton, 8th March, 1850.
