-Lake and River Navigation - business is dull, 2 of 3 forwarding companies' boats are in hands of assignees; American line of steamboats between Ogdensburg, Lewiston and Toronto to be sold tomorrow - the Jenny Lind, British Queen, Montreal, New York, Bay State, Northerner, Ontario, Cataract and Niagara. Royal Mail Line arrangements are not yet complete - the Magnet and New Era are withdrawn and Kingston, Passport, Banshee and Champion to run; steamer Bowmanville to run.

The propellers Whitby, Oshawa, Ranger and Protection will be run by them on the customary river route; the Montgomery, Hunter, Evergreen City, and Ontonagon to run between Collingwood and Chicago; Peerless to run between Toronto and Lewiston; the Zimmerman might run between Toronto and Hamilton; Arabian will probably run from Toronto to Oswego. [Colonist]
