p.2 New Boat - str. J.H. Kelly to run between Ogdensburg and Alexandria Bay; a new boat will run from Cape Vincent to Clayton. [Independent]

p.3 The New Boat - In the Messr's Folger Bros' office today was displayed a very artistic India ink sketch of the model of the new steamer of the Ferry Company, now being built at Portsmouth. As a work of art, with the land and water scene accompanying, the picture is well worth the seeing, but besides this it displays the handsomest form of any steamer yet projected for public service on the lake. There is a promise of a very elegant boat - a screw steamer, affording more room and easier motion than a side wheel craft - and one which by its superior comforts and accommodations will in conjunction with the popular Maud render the ferry routes still more popular, and make excursions from the city a greater pleasure than ever.
