p.2 The Through Line - Since Monday last the splendid vessels which ply between Hamilton and Montreal, have been running down the United States shore, leaving Hamilton at 7 o'clock in the morning, and touching at Port Dalhousie on their way to Lewiston, from which place they proceed to Montreal touching at Cape Vincent. This is said to be the most comfortable route to New York at present. Upwards, the steamers run along the British shore. This through line is composed of really magnificent vessels, which are in every way a credit to the country from which they sail, and we might venture to say, will compare favorably with any six vessels which compose a line on any fresh water in the world. [Hamilton Spectator]

Steamboat Explosion - On the 14th the flues of the Forest City, a new steamer plying plying between Detroit and Cleveland, collapsed, killing three firemen, injuring several other persons, and doing serious damage to the boat.
