p.2 Steamboat Arrangements For The Coming Season - We mentioned in our last that a Convention of Steamboat Proprietors was held in this City during the past week to make arrangements for the business of the coming season. We understand that there will be a through line from Hamilton, with the exception of a short time during the height of the pleasure travel, when it will be from Lewiston all the way to Montreal or Quebec. This line will consist of six speedy and comfortable vessels, the Champion, Arabian, Highlander, Maple Leaf, Mayflower and New Era. They will call at Port Hope and Cobourg, but will not touch at Kingston. They will land instead, at Cape Vincent, and it is supposed will form the quickest line to New York, when the new railroad from that place to Rome is completed. They will also run in connection with the Ogdensburgh Railway. The ordinary mail line between this port and Kingston will consist of the Passport, Magnet, and Princess Royal, and the Admiral and America will form a daily line from this place to Rochester, and it is also said that the Americans intend to make their boats between Lewiston and Ogdensburgh call at Toronto, so that we shall have three boats a day to the ports on the St. Lawrence.
