p.2 The Firefly - Farmers and onters residing along the Rideau Canal, have reason to congratulate themselves on the addition of the iron steamer Firefly to the line of passenger boats plying between Kingston and Ottawa. The Firefly has proved herself a safe and fast boat, and her commander, Captain R. Kain, a careful and courteous gentleman; both are deservedly winning "golden opinions" from the way passengers, particularly, who can now, owing to the speed of the former, reach this port at a sufficiently early hour in the morning to enable them to transact business, and return in the afternoon by the same conveyance.

ad - Bay of Quinte, Sackets Harbor and New York - The steamer Novelty, Capt. Murray, will leave Trenton every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday morning, at 6 o'clock, for Kingston and Sackets Harbor.

Returning: will leave Sackets Harbor next morning at 6 o'clock, and Kingston at 11, forenoon, for the head of the Bay. Calling at all intermediate ports in the Bay, up and down.

Passengers for New York, taking the Novelty from Kingston in the evening can sleep on board and take the early morning Train from Sackets Harbor.
