p.2 The Maud - This elegant little steamer, which conveyed the Governor-General and party to the Hon. Mr. Cartwright's on Saturday and down to Brockville yesterday, was neatly fitted up for the accommodation of the vice-regal party. A handsome set of rich furniture was placed in the cabin and the state-rooms were newly carpeted. His Excellency, Lady Dufferin and suite took lunch on board yesterday, which, upon short notice, was served up by Mr. Elliott, the steward, in a style which did him great credit.

The Watertown - This steamer, so long employed on the Kingston and Cape Vincent and the Island and Gananoque routes, left for Toronto yesterday, where she is to be employed as a ferry boat. The Watertown did good service in Kingston for many years, and we have no doubt she will prove in Toronto what she was here - a really good and suitable boat.
