p.2 His Excellency Lord Aylmer arrives by steam boat Britannia at Commodore's Wharf, salute fired by H.M. schooner Cockburn.

p.3 Mr. Parker's new steam-boat Kingston, having undergone repairs which have entirely changed her progress in the water, and made her secure and steady, left Kingston yesterday morning on her first trip up the Bay of Quinte. If we might judge from the rate at which she left our shores, we should pronounce that she will take her place among the numerous elegant and speedy steamboats that are gliding about our harbour at almost every hour in the day. It has already been noticed by our contemporaries, (and it indicates the rapid improvements in travelling,) that on Sunday last, no less than twelve steamboats were lying in port at one time.
