The New Steamboat Arrangements

As many of the local journals are copying the erroneous statement of the Globe, it may be as well to say, as far as we know them, what the new steamboat arrangements are.

The Grand Trunk Railroad Company have chartered, with the exception of the side line American steamboats, all the passenger steamers on the Upper St. Lawrence and Lake Ontario, for three years, on certain conditions, and a daily line between Toronto and Quebec will be formed, as follows:

The New York and Northerner will run daily, as express boats, from Ogdensburgh and Prescott to Cape Vincent and Toronto, crossing thence to Lewistown, and returning to Prescott and Ogdensburgh, via Toronto and Cape Vincent, not touching at Kingston at all.

The steamers Passport, Kingston, Banshee, New Era, Champion and Jenny Lind, will form a daily line between Kingston and Quebec, leaving Kingston in the night, after the arrival of the western train, and reaching Prescott in sufficient time to take the passengers of the Express Line, then to arrive at Montreal early in the afternoon, and proceed down to Quebec next day.

The Hon. John Hamilton will be chief manager at Kingston; Mr. William Bowen goes to Toronto to manage there; and Mr. A. Milloy will remain agent and manager at Montreal.

Rochester March 13th - harbor clear of ice; Maple Leaf to start soon; John Wesley and others expected soon.
