p.2 Steamers To Leave Port - The facilities afforded at this port for the laying up of steamers are generally taken advantage of by owners and proprietors. The harbor is easy of access until very late in the fall, and the early opening in the spring is another good reason in favor of the practice. The steamers which will leave this port on their first trip, independent of the Watertown and Pierrepont, which are already running, are the Huron, St. Lawrence, Indian, Avon, Ottawa and Colonist, of Jacques & Tracey's line - the latter vessel being sold and now taken off the strength of the line; the Grecian, Passport, and Banshee of the Royal Mail Line - the latter vessel of this line also being sold; the Whitby, East, and Ranger, of Black and Bonner's line - the two former having laid up at Portsmouth; the steamer Bay of Quinte, the propellers North and Brantford, and the small steamer Gazelle. All these are being either repaired, repainted or both, to a greater or less extent, and are also being thoroughly fitted out for the summer campaign just about to begin, thereby distributing in the city a pretty round sum for labor which must be spent annually at the port where the steamers winter. Kingston has had her full share this spring in this respect, no less than eighteen steamers, besides very many schooners and small craft having laid up here during the winter.

-The Watertown is to take the place of the steamer Bay of Quinte until the latter is ready for the season of navigation now opening up. The Watertown will make her first trip up the Bay on Thursday, ice permitting.
