The Geneva's Sale - The steamer Geneva has been sold to Dr. Lewis Springer, of Hamilton, to run in connection with his railroad. The Geneva is one of the neatest, fleetest, and staunchest steamers we have ever had here. Kingstonians have patronized her with pleasure and will part with her with regret. We have no doubt she will be as great a favourite at Hamilton as she has been here.
