p.2 The Spring and Summer steamboat arrangements are now made. The Great Western railway steamers America and Canada will run direct from Hamilton to Ogdensburgh, via Cape Vincent and Brockville. The royal mail line (Arabian, Magnet, Kingston and Passport) propose running from Hamilton to Ogdensburgh, via Toronto and Brockville. At Brockville three lines of steamers will connect with the Grand Trunk Railway to Montreal and Quebec. The American line of steamers (Cataract and Northerner) will touch at Toronto on their way up and down the lake. The Peerless will ply between Toronto and Hamilton; the Zimmerman between Toronto and Niagara; the Welland between Toronto and St. Catherines; the Maple Leaf and Highlander between Toronto and Rochester, and the Champion and Mayflower between Toronto and Oswego, in connection with the Northern railway. The directors of this railroad also propose to complete their connection with Lakes Michigan and Huron even more effectively than last year. The Banshee, New Era, Ottawa and St. Lawrence will be employed as usual on the river, the Bay of Quinte, City of the Bay and Corra Linn between Belleville and Kingston, and the steamers St. Helen and Trenton between Montreal and the head of the Bay.
