p.2 Steamer Banshee - The steamer Banshee has been purchased by the Canadian Inland Steam Navigation Company, and will be immediately placed on the Royal Mail Line and run until the steamer Kingston is again ready to resume her trips, when she will be laid by as a spare boat. The purchase of the Banshee will admit of a daily steamer, and stop the gap at present existing in the line.
