p.1 Trenton & Belleville - Mr. James Fisher, of Kingston, has placed his beautiful steam yacht on the Trenton and Belleville route, in place of the steamer Mary Ann, which was spoken of some time ago in connection with this line, but which came to grief by a boiler explosion down the Rideau Canal. The Marquis of Lorne is comfortable and handsomely furnished and has good accommodation, so that the passengers by her will find the passage pleasant and comfortaable, as well as expeditious, her speed being equal to any of the large steamers running the Bay. In short she is just what has been wanted between these two points for a long time.
