p.3 On Monday last the Steam Boat Frontenac was sold by Auction at the Government Wharf, for the sum of £1550. This vessel, though eminently useful and convenient, as respected the accommodation of the public, did not, we understand, remunerate the proprietors. Indeed we believe she was quite a losing concern. The purchaser was Mr. John Hamilton, brother of the Gentleman who is now constructing a new Steam Boat at Queenston. He intends, it is said, after making some necessary repairs, to run the Frontenac another year. - when it is probable he will build another Boat of smaller dimensions, to be propelled by the same excellent Engine. The public, therefore, is not likely to suffer in point of convenience, as there will be increased facilities for travelling and the transportation of goods.
