p.2 Ontario Steamers - Arrangements for Spring - At a recent meeting of the Directors of the Ontario and St. Lawrence Steamboat Company of this city, A. Munson, Esq., resigned his office as Treasurer, and Capt. Van Cleve, of the Bay State, was appointed in his place. A dividend of 20 per cent was made at the same time. The arrangements for running the boats the ensuing spring were made, with some variations from last season as follows. There will be three distinct lines, it will be seen:

The Steamer Northerner, Capt. Childs; Ontario, Capt. Throop; and Bay State, Capt. J.A. Ledyard; will run as the four boats ran last season, except on the down trip from Oswego, when they will run via Sackett's Harbor and Cape Vincent.

The Lady of the Lake will run daily from Oswego via Sackett's Harbour to Kingston, and direct from Kingston to Oswego, leaving Oswego at 9 o'clock. A.M., and Kingston for Oswego on the arrival of the Express Line from Ogdensburgh at 7 o'clock A.M.

The Niagara and Cataract will run the Express line from Ogdensburgh to Lewiston daily, to accommodate the arrival of the Express trains.

John H. Ledyard has been appointed Captain of the Bay State, and John S. Warner, Captain of the Lady of the Lake. Both of these gentlemen are experienced navigators of these waters, and will no doubt show themselves efficient and able officers. [Oswego Journal ]
