p.3 Tuesday last being Saint George's Day, and also the period appointed for celebrating the birth of our gracious Monarch, it was observed at this place with due honours... At one o'clock, a gun boat, stationed in front of the Commissioner's House, and gaily decorated with flags, fired another royal salute...

On Monday last the Steam Boat Charlotte proceeded up the Bay of Quinte on her first trip this season.

The American Steam Boat Sophia arrived on Wednesday for the first time from Sacket's Harbour. We are told that this vessel will this year touch regularly at Carleton Island.

The Steam Boat Frontenac sets out, as usual, on her first voyage across the Lake on the 1st of May. She will perform her tour once in ten days until the 1st of June; then once a week until the 1st of September; and afterwards once in ten days during the remainder of the season. We understand she will touch at York, both in going and returning.
