p.2 We have much pleasure in seeing that the Kingston Line of River Steamers and their Commanders, are handsomely spoken of by the Montreal Press:

Steamer New Era - In another column will be found an advertisement respecting this well-known steamboat. To the travelling community this will be interesting. Of Captain Chrysler's qualities as a sailor and a gentleman we need not speak as he is well known, and from his long experience (15 years) in the navigation of the St. Lawrence he can instruct and amuse those who confide themselves to his care with various interesting descriptions of the several places along the route between this and Kingston which are in any way celebrated. His Pilot and engineers are of strictly temperate habits and on this as well as the other boats of the Royal Mail Line, there is a thorough understanding amongst all the servants and officers as to the duties which belong to them. We mentioned a short time ago an act of benevolence performed by Capt. Chrysler towards a party of emigrants, and this entitles him to reward. The reward which such conduct merits, is confidence in such a man, which we are sure will be freely given.

p.3 ads for steamers Passport, Ottawa and Bay of Quinte (all dated Oct. 11th).
