p.2 Ontario & St. Lawrence Steamboat Company - We learn from the Oswego Palladium that the Board of Directors of this Company met at Watertown on the 8th inst., and completed their arrangements for the running of their steamers the ensuing season. The arrangements are similar to those of last year, except that the boats of this Company will also form the Collingwood line between Oswego and Toronto, and no other boats are to be put upon that route. The steamers detailed for the season are as follows:- New York, Capt. B.B. Chapman; Northerner, Capt. R.F. Child; Ontario, Capt. N. Throop; Bay State, Capt. John Ledyard.
These boats will form a daily line, touching at all intermediate points, as usual, including Toronto; and connecting at Ogdensburgh with the steamer Jenny Lind, Capt. L. Moody; British Empire, Capt. D.S. Allen; Montreal, Capt. J. LaFlanne, which form the line on the St. Lawrence from Ogdensburgh to Montreal. The above are all first-class boats, and will not fail to make regular time. The old commanders, it will be seen, and there are none of superior abilities and accomplishments on the inland waters, are placed in command of the boats they have respectively commanded. The arrangements are well devised, and the idea of these splendid boats occupying the Collingwood line between Oswego and Toronto is one of economy and expedition, and will render the route more popular and pleasant than ever. The boats will leave Oswego every afternoon, and touch at Genesee river, cross over to Toronto, leaving the Collingwood or Hamilton passengers, the latter being enabled to take the cars to Hamilton, and the latter can proceed to Collingwood, as during the last season.
