Str. Ontario, Oswego - (gen. cargo)

Str. Star, Cape Vincent - (gen. cargo)

Exports - Schr. Ceres, Oswego - 7,000 hop poles.

Cheap Travelling - The New, Swift and Splendid Upper State Cabin, Royal Mail & Express Steamer Bay of Quinte, The Newest and Most Expeditious on the Route, F.A. Carrell, Master, will leave Belleville every morning, (Sundays excepted), at six o'clock, and Picton at half-past eight, for Kingston and intermediate ports.

Returning: will leave Kingston every afternoon, (Sundays excepted), at three o'clock, and Picton at 7 o'clock, for Belleville and intermediate ports.

Passage - including state room and Berth, Fifteen Pence.

This splendid, swift new Steamer has been built expressly for the Bay, is the only state-cabin one on the route, and is fitted up with all the comforts, elegance and luxuries of modern times, and being much more expeditious than any other on the Bay, passengers will arrive at either terminus of the Route, from half an hour to an hour and a half earlier than by any other boat.

Who would remain at home this hot weather, when a water excursion of 82 miles through some of the loveliest scenery in the world can be had for Fifteen Pence, sleeping accommodations included?

Nothwithstanding that the opposition steamer has for the present been hauled off, and the Bay of Quinte consequently is now the only boat on the above Route, no difference will be made, and the same low rates will be continued.
