p.2 The Weather & the Season - ...The steamboats are still running, though running irregularly. The City of Toronto has hauled off the Lake route, but the Magnet and Princess Royal still remain on. The Rideau Canal is closing fast, and the present will be the last week of its navigation. The American Lake Boats make three trips a week instead of six. The Bay Boats are yet in full business.

Steamboat Changes - The Messrs. Davy have sold the hull of their new steamer to Donald Bethune & Co.; and she left Kingston harbour last night for Toronto, in tow of the steamer Princess Royal. She is to be fitted forthwith with the machinery of the Eclipse, and will go on the Hamilton route in the spring. The new steamer St. Lawrence of Montreal, has been recently purchased for the Upper Canada Trade, by Capt. William Bowen and other Kingston gentlemen.
