p.2 ad - Royal Mail Line - Commencing on Tuesday, the 25th August, the steamers of this line will leave Kingston for Montreal and intermediate ports at 5 a.m. instead of 5:30. C. Hatch.
Change of Time - mail steamers to leave at 5:00 a.m.
ad - The Civic Holiday - The New Steam Yacht Marquis of Lorne - will leave Gunn & Co.'s wharf on Monday next, the 24th of August, at 8 a.m. for a trip among the Thousand Islands, calling at the Thousand Island House, Alexandria Bay. Returning will reach Kingston about 6 p.m. Tickets, to be limited to 30 gentlemen at $1 each, and 20 ladies at 50 cents each, to be procured on board.
Excursions - We have almost forgotten the number of pic-nics and excursions arranged for Monday next. We wonder how it would do for the excursionists to tow the Thousand Islands up and anchor them around Wolfe and Simcoe Islands. At any rate, if any other organization proposes an excursion for that day it must be to some other place than the Thousand Islands, as there will positively be no room for any more excursions to the Islands upon that day, except it can be arranged for them to go at different hours. Seriously, we hope the different parties having excursions arranged for Monday next will look after their friends pretty sharply and early in order that they may not come to grief. The Thousand Island trip appears to be the most popular with everyone, and this is not to be wondered at. The Islands never get old, the scenery is as beautiful and fresh when seen the tenth time as the first. Now that the City of Kingston, the Messrs. Anglin's new boat, is to make her debut in a few days, we may look forward to an occasional excursion on the Rideau, the scenery of which is very pretty, particularly around the locks at Jones Falls..
