p.2 Welland Canal Mission - The Rev. Thomas Bone, missionary on the Welland Canal, will address a meeting tonight in St. Andrew's Hall, when he will give interesting details of his work. Mr. Bone's statement of facts, as given in his former visits to the city, will no doubt secure him a large audience.

Messrs. Folger Bros., of Kingston, Ont., are making several changes in their steamers, the most important of which is enclosing the bow deck of the steamer Geneva which not only provides a very convenient room for the use of passengers, but adds materially to the upper deck accommodations and will, when finished, make her the prettiest steamer that floats on the St. Lawrence. In the item of speed, she convinced some steam boat owners last season, that it wasn't safe to tackle her with anything slower than a craft good for at least fifteen miles an hour. Folger Bros. will have things about right when they undertake to do anything. [Watertown Despatch]
