On the Upper Lakes, to two vessels not exceeding one hundred tons burthen each, and armed with like force.

On the waters of Lake Champlain, to one vessel not exceeding ike burden, and armed with like force.

All other armed vessels on these lakes shall be forthwith dismantled, and no other vessel of war shall be there built or armed....

[National Intelligencer of April 30th]

p.3 arrival of passengers and newspapers by Steam Boat Frontenac yesterday...

The Stage between Kingston and Prescott is discontinued. This would be more to be regretted, had not the new Steam Boat Charlotte, now commenced running up and down the River; so that travellers on this route may be accommodated with a safe and agreeable passage by water, instead of the former carriage by land.
