p.2 The Grecian - The new iron steamer, now being completed at Montreal, will be ready to take her place in the Royal Mail through line on the opening of navigation. She will replace the Empress, the latter to ply between Toronto and Lewiston in lieu of the Zimmerman until the new boat now building at St. Catherines for that route shall have been completed.

New Steamers - Two new steamers will be placed on routes leading from Kingston during the coming summer; one, the new iron steamer, shortly to arrive from Europe in sections, and to be put up here, the other, Mr. Kinghorn's new boat, now building. The former is intended to replace the steamer Bay of Quinte on that route, about October next, and will be some twenty five feet longer than the Bay of Quinte, and in every way well adapted not only to supply her place, but to increase pleasure as well as business travel up and down the bay. Mr. Kinghorn's new boat will replace the Pierrepont between Kingston and Cape Vincent, for which route she is being specially built, with low draught of water, greater breadth of beam, and bow adapted to crushing the ice through which she may have occasion to force her way. The old Pierrepont will be placed on the ferry between the city and Wolfe Island.
