p.3 The Boats May Be Run - It is stated on good authority that the Folgers, of Kingston, have purchased the steamer Prince Arthur, which has lain in the river at Gananoque the past year, and will run her from Kingston to Ogdensburg, if not further. [Watertown Times]

The boat was purchased some time ago, and is intended to run in connection with the R.W. & O.R.R., along with the steamer St. Lawrence, making a daily line from Kingston to Montreal, and taking on the R.W. & O.R.R. passengers at Clayton, if satisfactory arrangements are not made with the Richelieu & Ontario Navigation Company for their business.
