p.2 A fine steam yacht the J.J. Morley, of Sodus, N.Y., was lying at Swift's dock this morning. The Morley belongs to a gentleman of the same name, is worth $10,000, and is splendidly fitted up. She is by far the best boat of the kind we have seen in Kingston, and is certainly worth a visit.

The Bohemian - This fine steamer was lying at Swift's wharf today, the admiration of all who passed that way. She connects with the north shore line, and runs down to Montreal thrice a week. As she lays at the wharf all of Monday, there would be a good chance of pic-nic or excursion parties to charter her for which she is admirably adapted.
