p.2 American Line of Steamers - The public will learn by a new advertisement that entirely new arrangements have been made by the Ontario and St. Lawrence Steamboat Company, and in future the American Lake Steamer going upwards will call at Kingston between five and six o'clock in the morning, and going downwards between two and three o'clock in the afternoon. By the alteration between hours time will be gained by the passengers going to the Niagara Falls. The increased speed of the vessels forming the Line enables the Company thus to accommodate the travelling community.
