Kingston, 25th May, 1826.

N.B. - The Boat meets the regular line of Stages at Prescott, and the Passengers are by that means enabled to proceed direct to the Lower Province - and the passengers arriving in the Stage from below on Saturday have also an opportunity of proceeding direct to Kingston and the Bay of Quinte. The Stage also meets the Boat at the Carrying Place on Tuesday morning, for the conveyance of passengers to York or intermediate places on that route.

The Charlotte having lately undergone a thorough repair, affords to the public as speedy, cheap, and comfortable a mode of travelling as there is to be found in this Province.
