p.3 ad - Daily Steamer Between Kingston and Ottawa - The Subscriber respectfully informs the Mercantile and Travelling Community, that he intends, as soon as the navigation opens, to place on the Rideau Canal, between Kingston and Ottawa (late Bytown), making two trips a week, the Iron Steamer Firefly, Capt. Roland Kain, forming with other steamers, a Daily Line.

The speed of the Firefly will enable her to make quicker passages than have hitherto been made, and her light draught of water will allow her to go to places that the old class of vessels could not visit. She will call twice a week at Pike's Falls, for the express accommodation of the Perth Trade.
