Oswego and Belleville Line. - Among the new channels of communication opened with Canada this spring, of no little importance to our city trade, is the running of a steamer between this and Belleville near the head of the Bay of Quinte, whose shores form one of the richest and most productive agricultural regions of Upper Canada. A new steamer built at Belleville the past season for B. Flint, Esq., late member of the Canadian Parliament, has been put on this line and runs regular between Oswego and Belleville, touching at the different ports on the Bay, carrying passengers and freight. She is called the "Moira" and is an elegant vessel of her class, 123 feet keel and 130 feet on deck, fitted up with upper cabins and state-rooms for the accommodation of passengers. For this purpose, her appointments are of the first order for convenience and comfort.

The "Moira" is commanded by Capt. S. Barney, an experienced, capable and trustworthy gentleman, who has long been engaged in the Oswego trade and is well and favorably known to our citizens. It is important to our local trade to patronize and encourage this enterprise, as our citizens will doubtless be disposed to do. The "Moira" left here at her regular hour on Saturday evening with a full load of passengers and freight for Belleville.
