The Schooner Robert Gaskin - really was seized at Detroit on July 28th.

p.3 The Bay Route - The residents along the Bay of Quinte cannot complain of the lack of steamboat accommodation. There is no other water course that we know of whereon there are so many boats plying in competition and so little traffic to be distributed among them at certain points and seasons. The Picton Gazette supplies the list of steamers, thus: Alexandria between Trenton and Montreal, Utica between Trenton and Picton, Hastings between Belleville and Kingston, Shannon between Picton and Napanee, Oswego Belle between Oswego, Picton, Belleville, and Napanee, City of Kingston and New York between Picton and Belleville, Pilgrim between Mill Point and Napanee, together with the Kincardine and Maud, which make occasional trips as required.

W.W. - Chicago Charters to Kingston - schrs. Belle Mitchell and Arabia, corn on p.t.
