p.2 Three of the regular steamers plying between Kingston and Lachine being disabled from running, one by an accident to her machinery, and the other two by a collision, in which, fortunately, no one was injured, the post-office department at Kingston was afraid the Western Mail for Europe would not reach Montreal in time to be despatched to Boston. In this dilemma Messrs. Macpherson & Crane, with great promptitude, placed at the disposal of the department their steam propeller Meteor, Capt. Kelly, which was accordingly chartered, and left Kingston with the downward Mails and the Mail for Europe, on Tuesday afternoon, and arrived at Lachine yesterday morning. But for this promptitude on the part of Messrs. Mc. and Crane, most of the Mails to Europe, via Montreal, could not have reached Boston in time for the steamer.
