p.2 The Novelty - This far-famed steamer has at length made her promised appearance on the waters of the Bay of Quinte, under charge of her new owner, Capt. Bonter, of Belleville. The Novelty is a handsome boat, in size well adapted to the Bay, and it is said, very speedy in her movements. Being somewhat crank, it is intended to put false sides on her for the purpose of giving her steadiness; after which she will be placed permanently on the Bay of Quinte, as a Day Boat, which the daily increasing commerce on that route imperiously demands. While the preparations are making, she will make a few trips, to and from Belleville. The Novelty will be commanded by Capt. J. Bonter, son of the owner, who we hope may have no reason to regret having expended his means in placing this extra public accommodation on his home waters. The Engine, which gives name to the vessel, is of a novel construction, embracing both principles, the high pressure and the low pressure.
