p.2 Steamboat Arrangements - Two statements have recently been made by the Globe and other papers, which we find to be incorrect. The first is that the steamers Champion and Highlander will be placed as soon as navigation opens, on the route between Rochester and Hamilton, and the other that the Mayflower will run upon the river as a mail boat. We understand, on the contrary, that the Rome and Cape Vincent Railway Company, with the enterprise which has marked its proceedings from the onset, have secured the services of the three splendid steamers above named to open and maintain a daily communication between the Cape, Kingston and Hamilton, calling, we fancy, at the usual north shore ports on their upward and downward trips. This is an excellent arrangement, and will doubtless prove as beneficial to the parties immediately interested as it will facilitate the trade of the country.
