p.2 Travelling Prospects - The steamboat proprietors have recently met to make arrangements for their business for the coming season, to divide the waters of Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence into different domains to be ruled by independent sovereigns. We learn that it is determined that the mail line shall run down as far as Prescott, calling at Kingston only to land passengers and freight. The Passport, Magnet, Maple Leaf and Arabian will undertake this service; Hamilton being the western terminus, as during last season. There will be no through line at all; the communication with Montreal will be kept up by the boats we have mentioned, and the river mail line, of which the Mayflower and the New Era will form part. The Champion and Highlander are said to be chartered by the Cape Vincent Railroad Company to run from Hamilton to their port, calling at Toronto. We will have good accommodation between this port and Rochester by the Admiral and Princess Royal, which will form a daily line, and with the Niagara River by Capt. Dick's new boat, which is being rapidly fitted up in the Niagara Dockyard, while the Mazeppa will maintain her usual place on the St. Catharines route, and the City of Hamilton on that of Hamilton. We have not yet heard in what manner the Queen of the West is to be employed. [Globe]
