p.2 Port Genessee - The harbor presents a very active appearance just now. Five steamers have been laid up all winter, which have been thoroughly repainted, refitted and repaired. They look beautifully with their fresh white paint, their bright new furniture, and all the other preparations for their summer career. These boats are all of the American line, and are the Bay State, Capt. Ledyard; New York, Capt. Chapman; Cataract, Capt. Estes; Northerner, Capt. Childs; and Ontario, Capt. Throop. The Cataract will take her place first in the line. She will commence her trips next week, and the others will follow in order. The Bay State will run as a shore boat until June 1st, when she and the New York will form the Express Line from Lewiston to Ogdensburgh. All these boats connect with a line of Steamers from Ogdensburgh to Montreal, through the Rapids of the St. Lawrence. There are other craft in the Harbor - sail vessels and propellers, all preparing for the season. The Maple Leaf makes her regular trips from Toronto three times a week, and does a large business in freight and passengers. Freight trains run every day to Charlotte. We observed upon some of the cars castings and other iron work for the new Steamers now building in the Niagara River for the Great Western Railway.
