Proposed Through Line of Passenger Steamboats - It will be remembered that the Kingston papers announced, some time since, that the regular through line of steamers between this port and Montreal would be renewed this spring, and such, we believe, was the intention; but the proprietor of the boats comprising the line having met with a reverse of fortune, they are now for sale. The owners of the steam boat line between Lewiston and Ogdensburgh are in treaty for the boats of the Canadian line, with the intention of chartering them for the season; but we are happy to state that, with the view of preventing such a consummation, an effort is being made by a joint stock company to purchase the boats, and run them in the through line from this city to Montreal. Mr. Milloy, formerly agent of the line, and Capt. Harbottle, called upon us yesterday, with the prospectus of the new company, and exhibited their stock-book, which shows that considerable progress has been made. Mr. Milloy will wait upon such of our merchants today as he was unable to see yesterday. The shares are $1000 each, and we earnestly hope the attempt will succeed, for it will certainly be a great thing for Hamilton if it should. [Spectator]
