p.1 Run Steamers From Oswego - Oswego, N.Y., Dec. 24th - The Richelieu & Ontario navigation company is considering the question of running the steamers Toronto and Kingston into this port next season. The route will be Toronto to Charlotte, to Oswego, to Kingston, Thousand Island points and Prescott. This will afford better accommodations for summer travel from this section of New York state than has been enjoyed here before.

p.8 Incidents of the Day - The steamer Pierrepont had a large number of passengers from Cape Vincent yesterday afternoon. Many were former Kingstonians who came who came to spend Christmas in their native city.

The Cape Vincent steamers experienced difficulty in getting through the ice yesterday, meeting large floes. Should it freeze hard tonight, the harbor and river will be rendered quite solid.
