p.3 Among our advertisements will be found two respecting the steam-boats Oswego and Kingston. The Oswego has undergone such alterations as now place her on the list of the first-rate Boats on the Lake, for speed, comfort and safety. She is commanded by Lieut Homans, late of the U.S. Navy, of whom report speaks very highly.

The Kingston, under the command of Mr. Calder, late Purser of the Britannia, will commence running as soon as the Bay of Quinte is free from ice. This vessel has been thoroughly repaired, and as she will undoubtedly make her trips with great speed and regularity, under the steady management of the Captain, we have good reason to believe she will have a profitable season.



The Steam Boat


(Propelled by two powerful low-pressure Engines.)


Will ply on Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence River, between Ogdensburgh and Niagara, as follows:


Leaves Ogdensburgh on Friday evening,

Kingston, U.C., Saturday morning,

Sackett's Harbour, " noon,

Oswego, " evening,

Rochester, Sunday morning,

Toronto, U.C., for Niagara and Lewiston, Monday morning, where she arrives early, giving passengers all the day to visit the Falls of Niagara, and return by the boat.

Rochester on Tuesday morning,

Oswego " afternoon,

Sackett's Harbor, " night,

Kingston, U.C., Wednesday morning, and arrives at Ogdensburgh the same evening, touching at French Creek, Morristown, Alexandria and Brockville.

Parties intending to visit the Falls of Niagara, Buffalo, or the different ports on Lake Ontario, will find the route via Oswego or Rochester, to be the cheapest and most expeditious.

Passengers leaving Niagara in this Boat on Monday evening, will arrive at Montreal on Thursday evening, passing the most interesting part of the St. Lawrence River by daylight.

N.B. The Oswego will commence running from Ogdensburgh on Friday the 17th of April.
