Steam Boat


Capt. Gildersleeve

The Steam Boat Charlotte will, until further notice, leave Kingston for the Bay of Quinte every Monday at 10 o'clock, and after making her usual stops, will arrive at the Carrying Place on Tuesday morning. Leave the Carrying Place at 11 o'clock the same day, and arrive at Hallowell in the evening. Leave Hallowell at 7 o'clock on Wednesday morning, and arrive at Kingston early in the afternoon. Leave Kingston for Bellville every Thursday morning at 10 o'clock, and arrive there in the evening. Leave Bellville at 8 o'clock on Friday morning, and arrive in Kingston in the evening. Leave Kingston for Prescott every Saturday morning at 10 o'clock, stopping at Gananoque and Brockville, and arrive in the evening. Leave Prescott for Kingston every Sunday, and arrive on Monday morning.

Kingston, 25th May, 1826.

N.B. - The Boat meets the regular line of Stages at Prescott, and the Passengers are by that means enabled to proceed direct to the Lower Province - and the passengers arriving in the Stage from below on Saturday, have also an opportunity of proceeding directly to Kingston and the Bay of Quinte. The Stage also meets the Boat at the Carrying Place, on Tuesday morning, for the conveyance of passengers to York, or intermediate places on that route.

The Charlotte having lately undergone a thorough repair, affords to the public as speedy, cheap, and comfortable a mode of travelling, as there is to be found in this Province.


Faster Than Ever - The fast-running Steam-Boat Dalhousie, A. McDonell, Master, having excellent accommodations, and undergone a thorough repair in every part, will this season, be enabled to perform her trips with greater expedition than she has ever done before. She will leave Prescott for Kingston on Wednesdays and Saturdays, at 2 o'clock P.M. and Kingston for Prescott on Mondays and Thursdays, at 11 o clock A.M.

The Dalhousie, on her passage to and from Kingston, will stop half an hour at Brockville and Gananoque. Passengers must be punctual, as the Boat carries the Mail, and cannot be delayed for any one.

Prescott, May 15, 1826.
