p.2 The steamer Bowmanville, built for Capt. Perry by Mr. Ault of Portsmouth, made a most satisfactory trial trip on Tuesday. The Engine, built at the Kingston Foundry, worked as smoothly as if it had been used to it, and the steamer made, upon the run from Nine Mile Point, between 12 and 13 miles an hour. The Bowmanville is a very fine boat, and will be ready in a few days for actual service, as a through passenger and freight steamer. Success to her!
