p.2 Launch - Will be launched on Monday next, the beautiful Schooner building at this port. Her masts are in, and we understand she is to be completely rigged and fit for sea, before leaving the stocks and entering her destined element. She is a superior vessel, and we have no doubt, will be an excellent sailor, being built, as near as possible, after the model of that elegant and well known schooner, on Lake Erie, called the Marie Antoinette. We wish her, and her enterprising owners much success. [Niagara Herald]

The Steam-Boat Niagara, Capt. Mosier, arrived here last Tuesday evening from Prescott, at which place she was laid up for the past season. This elegant Boat is now in perfect repair, and her accommodations for passengers is equal to any boat on the two Lakes. She will ply regularly this season between Niagara and Prescott, touching at the intermediate ports of York, Kingston and Brockville. She is likewise admirably calculated for the conveyance of freight and we understand that she leaves here this morning having on board 807 barrels of flour for the Montreal market. [ibid]
