p.2 New Steamboat Arrangement - A new arrangement with reference to the trips of the Cape Vincent and Hamilton steamers has been in force for a few days. Instead of running direct from Cobourg to Cape Vincent on the downward trip, and from Kingston to Cobourg, on the upward, the Champion, Highlander and Mayflower leave Cape Vincent at 7 for the head of the lake, instead of Kingston at 9, as heretofore, and coming down, make for Kingston direct, after leaving Cobourg, and leave this port at 7 o'clock every morning, to meet the express train from Cape Vincent at 9, which they never fail to do. This is an arrangement which works satisfactorily, affording greater convenience to the travelling public, and commanding in consequence increased patronage for the boats.

The steamer Queen of the West, Capt. Harrison, was launched from the Marine Railway on Friday afternoon, and about six o'clock on the following morning proceeded upwards to resume her accustomed route between Toronto and Hamilton.
