The Lake Ontario and St. Lawrence Steamboat Company, whose stock a few years ago, was so good that it could not be obtained, has gone into liquidation. The company owes seventy-five thousand dollars, with nothing to meet it but the boats and furniture. In order to save the property from the hands of the sheriff, an attempt will be made to organize a new company, and assess the stockholders pro rata to pay the seventy-five thousand dollars. A period of thirty days is allowed, in order carry the plan into effect. The capital stock of the company is five hundred thousand dollars, and they have nine steamers, some of which cost over one hundred thousand dollars each.
