p.2 A Meeting was held at Adolphustown on the 12th instant, to consult on measures towards building and establishing a steam-boat, to ply between Prescott and the head of the Bay of Quinte. Subscription lists are to be forwarded to various places; and a general meeting is called for the 8th of September next.

Accident - While the steam boats Sir James Kempt and Toronto were lying at the wharf in Adolphustown on Friday last, the charge of a small cannon, fired from the latter, entered the leg of one of the sailors on board of the former, and lacerated it most dreadfully. Doctor Dormer, who happened to be at Adolphustown, immediately dressed the wound, and we believe the unfortunate sufferer in now on a fair way to recover. [Herald]
