p.2 Lake Navigation - It is now confidently expected that there will be four daily lines of passenger steamers from Ogdensburgh during the coming season of navigation, for the head of Lake Ontario, viz.:-

The American Accommodation Line, for Lewiston, touching at South Shore ports, Kingston and Niagara. This line will be composed of the following tried and approved boats - Bay State, Ontario, Cataract and Niagara.

The American Express Line for Lewiston, calling at Brockville and Cape Vincent, composed of the New York and Northerner.

The British Mail Line for Toronto, touching at North Shore ports, composed of the Magnet, Passport, Kingston and Arabia.

Last, but not least in the numeration, comes the Great Western Express Line for Hamilton, touching at Brockville and Cape Vincent, composed of the mammoth steamers of that company, the largest and most expensively furnished, and we suppose the fastest crafts that ever floated on our waters.
