p.2 New Steam Boat Queen Adelaide - The new steam boat built by Robert Hamilton, Esq. and other gentlemen to ply between Chippewa and Amherstburg, on the British coast of Lake Erie was launched on Saturday last, and will commence her regular trips very shortly. [York Courier]

p.3 Rules for Cholera Outbreak at Kingston - no vessel allowed to enter harbour until inspected by Health Officer; a fine of 40 shillings for any Master of a Vessel bringing sick or dead person into harbour; and carters to lose license if he refuses to take a sick person to the hospital.

We understand that unless relieved before the next Quarter Sessions, the Bridge Directors will be indicted for obstructing the navigation of the lake, from their continued inattention to the various applications which have been made them in consequence of the useless and defective state of the draw-bridge, which is represented to us as incapable of being raised for the admission of steam or other boats requiring that operation. We have little doubt but that the Directors will pay speedy attention to this public grievance.
