p.2 Steamboat Arrangements - The arrangements for the season of 1854 are said to be not yet perfected. The Toronto Leader says that the Mayflower, of the Cape Vincent Line, has been purchased for the Ogdensburgh Line, and will run in connection with the Boston, the Champion and Highlander forming a daily line between the Cape and Toronto. The Northerner, of the American Line, it is rumored, will, if naturalization can be had for her here, be added to the Cape Vincent Line, taking the place of the Mayflower. The Welland, Capt. Donaldson's new vessel, is expected to be ready for service early in May. She is expected to make the trip from Toronto to Port Dalhousie in two hours. The new Queen of the West is progressing at Hamilton, under the superintendence of Capt. Harrison. The Spectator speaks highly of the model adopted. The Peerless has received new and larger condensers, and is expected to run during the season now opening fully one mile an hour faster than she did last year. It is said that no less than five iron steamers have been ordered from the Clyde for service on the lake and river. Preparations are making at Ault's shipyard here to build a river steamer, of the largest size which the canals will admit of, but this vessel will not be ready for business until the opening of the season of 1855.
