p.2 W.C. - 3.

p.3 Promoted - Cape Vincent made a port of entry.

-The Geneva - This new steamer has been astonishing the public with her neat model, handsome saloon, and general outfittings, and today she surprised her owners. Last evening she made her first trip to Gananoque and this morning came back as if she was bent on it, doing the 19 miles in 1:32, and making 3 stoppages. Her actual running time was 1:22. This is the best time on that course on record, and such annihilation of space will please travellers immensely. The Geneva is running all day today on the ferry routes, but will not be put into regular commission for 10 days to come, as her cabin is not yet completely furnished, although it is to present appearance the handsomest of any boat on inland waters. It is fitted up after the style of Pullman cars.

-Imports - 2,3.
