And are intended to arrive in Montreal the same evenings, in time for the Quebec Boats at 7 o'clock.

In addition to the ports above named, the boats will call at the other important Lake and River ports. After the 20th day of September, the Boats will discontinue calling at Lewiston, and make Hamilton the port of departure at 7 1/2 o'clock on the mornings of Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.

The establishment of this Line will enable the merchants of Canada West to remain throughout the business day in Montreal, and to reach their homes almost as early as if they had gone by the Mail Line at noon, and connecting as the Boats will do, with up and down Express Trains at Ogdensburgh, they will afford direct conveyance for passengers and freight between the Canadian ports and the Eastern States.

It is deemed necessary to dwell upon the advantages of our first class steamers, passing direct from the head of Lake Ontario to Montreal, and vice versa, over those of Lines that involve a transhipment, (on the downward trip) at an unseasonable hour in the morning.

In compliance with a generally expressed wish on the part of the public, a separate charge will be made for meals.


The line will be commenced by the Highlander leaving Montreal on Tuesday the 26th instant; the Champion on Thursday 28th; and the May Flower will be out next month.
