p.3 Change of Time - The steamer Armenia is making such splendid time that her proprietors have decided to leave Kingston one hour later (at 8 a.m.) on and after this day in order to accommodate those who are anxious to have a daylight trip up the Bay. During the season a weekly excursion will be given at a low rate, and season tickets, good to points on the Bay and Wells' Island during the camp meeting and for moonlight excursions, will be issued shortly.

The Harbour - Quite a number of arrivals are reported from lake ports in the harbour. The Agnes Hope unloaded at Stewart's wharf on Saturday, and the Petrel, Twilight and Goldhunter arrived at the M.T. Co.'s wharf. The Erie Belle left for Hamilton, where she will load old rail iron for Port Hope.

Quick Trip - The schooner Ontario left Kingston on Friday afternoon for Belleville and returned yesterday forenoon with 60,000 brick from Foster Bros. This is the fourth trip during the present season. The captain of that schooner must be a lively fellow.

Accident - Yesterday morning while getting up steam on the Armenia, Mr. W.F. Robertson was severely scalded by the busting of a steam pipe, in which there appears to have been some defect....

Royal Mail Line - The first steamer of the Royal Mail Line will be the Algerian for Toronto on the first of May.
