p.2 Does Not Call Here - Kingston has practically lost the steamer Iroquois, so it is understood. It seems too few patronized the new boat on her tri-weekly trips down the river or her west-bound run. For the past few days she has continued in the American channel when leaving Oswego. It is understood, however, that if she has anybody from her western ports of call for Kingston, she will run into the harbor.
