p.2 Steam-Boats - Yesterday morning at 9 o clock there were FIVE SteamBoats in the Harbour of Kingston - viz: the Frontenac, Capt. McKenzie; the Queenston, Capt. Whiting; the Charlotte, Capt. Gildersleeve; the Dalhousie, Capt. McDonell; and the Toronto, Capt. Baldwin. The latter boat arrived from York on Thursday evening, and will in future ply between Prescott and the head of the Bay of Quintie. It is said that the new Boats Union and Canada will be ready to navigate the Lake in the course of a few weeks. - The Americans have two Boats, the Ontario and the Martha Ogden, so that we may expect to see NINE Steam-Boats on Lake Ontario, and the River Saint Lawrence above Prescott, before the month of September next.

Tenders for Government Transport of Naval Stores - from Quebec to Montreal, Montreal to Kingston.

H. R. Glover, Naval Storekeeper. June 5, 1826.
