p.2 Troops For Toronto - on Corinthian.

The Canadian Navigation Co. - The fine steamers of this company, the Athenian and the Columbian, commenced running on the 22nd instant, and one of them will leave Kingston daily, with the exception of Mondays, for Alexandria Bay, Brockville and Ogdensburg, also for Charlotte and Lewiston, thus affording to the man of business every facility of travel, while the pleasure seeker will find a rare opportunity for the inspection of the unrivalled beauties of Lake Ontario and the Thousand Islands. The steamers are fitted with every luxury and convenience, and the polite and obliging manners of their respective Captains are too highly known to need comment.

Pic-Nic - a pleasure excursion from Gananoque on str. Watertown.

Port of Kingston - Arrivals & Departures - 26.

Angling For Herring - Now is the season to fish for this delicious fish, and each fair morning at any of the public wharves the angler is safe to enjoy an hour or two's good sport, and have a fair catch. The herring (Culper harengus) will take almost any gaudy fly - a peacock's feather with a scarlet body is a telling bait. Sink it slightly with a BB shot, and draw it slowly through the water, and success is pretty certain. In connection with this subject the public should know that the new fishery act prohibits the catching of fish in any of the waters of Ontario between six o'clock on Saturday evening and six o'clock on Monday morning.
