The Fast Sailing and Upper Cabin Steamer


Capt. G.M. Read,

During the season of navigation, will make semi-weekly trips between Belleville and Oswego, via Kingston, calling at intermediate ports for passengers and freight, under the following arrangements, viz.:


Belleville every Monday and Thursday, at 12 o'clock noon, (on arrival of the G.T.R. Express Train from the West) calling at Mill Point, Napanee, Picton and Kingston.


at Oswego every Tuesday and Friday morning.

This will be a desirable route for parties shipping stock. When sufficient business offers, will call at Cape Vincent, making connection with the R. & W.R.R., or Sacketts Harbour, connecting with the Utica and Black River R.R. Consignments to Oswego can be shipped over four different railroads to all the principal cities South, East and West. Having made special arrangements with the N.T. Co. Canal Line and old Oswego Line Transportation Company for the conveyance of freight, we can readily assure shippers and consignees we can now deliver freight at 25 per cent less than any other route.


Will leave Oswego at 6 o'clock p.m. every Tuesday and Friday, calling at Kingston, and other intermediate ports; arriving in Belleville every Wednesday and Saturday morning.

For parties ordering goods from New York, Syracuse or Albany, this will be the quickest and most reliable route to bring them at a low rate of freight, saving time and money, as they can rely on prompt delivery and careful handling of goods.

For rates of passage and freight, apply to the Captain on board, or to

Campbell & Brennan or J.W. Thompson, Belleville

R. Downey & Bros., Napanee

Orson Breed, Agent, 10 Old Slip and 76 Water St., New York

C. Allison, Agent, Oswego, New York

James Swift & Co., Kingston.
