p.2 The Europa - This splendid steamer, under the command of Capt. E. Harrison, (once a "Kingston boy" by the way) is now running regularly between Hamilton and Ogdensburgh, calling at intermediate ports. The Europa is a steamer which we have peculiar pleasure in recommending to the travelling public. She is fully sixty feet longer than the steamers of the mail line, and proportionately "tall across." Capt. Harrison has for some years, to the knowledge of the writer of this paragraph, been of opinion that a larger class of boats than those constructed for canal, river and lake navigation was required, and this opinion he carried out, particularly in the purchase and fitting out of the Queen of the West. The Queen was unfortunately destroyed by fire, but nothing daunted, Capt. H. proceeded, and the Europa is the splendid result. We may add tht Capt. Harrison and Mr. Higginbotham will make all feel at home who travel by the Europa.
