New and Important Steamboat Route

On and after Monday, the 5th May, one of this Company's magnificent Steamers, Canada or America, will leave the Railway Wharf, Hamilton, at 3 o'clock p.m., every day except Sunday, for Cape Vincent, Brockville and Ogdensburgh.

These steamers will connect at Cape Vincent with express trains to New York, and at Ogdensburgh with trains to Boston, making this the most pleasant route to the last, during the season of navigation.

From Brockville, express trains will run on the Grand Trunk Railway to Montreal and Quebec, enabling passengers to reach Montreal from Hamilton in less than 22 hours.

Express trains will arrive in Hamilton from Suspension Bridge, Toronto, Windsor, London and all intermediate Stations in time to connect with the above steamers.

These steamers will form a most desirable route for the conveyance of freight to and from Montreal, Boston and New York.

Hamilton, April 16th C.J. Brydges, Managing Director

Departure for Toronto and Hamilton - The Mail Steamer Kingston left this morning for Toronto and Hamilton. The Magnet was to have come down from Hamilton this day, but in consequence of Burlington Bay not being open, she will not arrive before Thursday.
