And will leave Kingston at 2 o'clock, p.m., for Clayton, Alexandria Bay, Brockville, Morristown, Ogdensburgh and Montreal.

N.B. - Passengers moving West will find this Line as comfortable, expeditious and cheap as any other. It being daily, passengers will not be subjected to expense and delay on the route, waiting uncertain connections.

If comfort, speed and low prices are desired, don't fail to secure tickets by American Line.

Horses and Wagons taken at corresponding prices.

Tickets can be procured of Thomas J. Angel, at his office, and on board the Steamers.

The Steamers connect every Monday with the cars at Sackett's Harbor for Albany and New York.
