p.3 The Great Britain Steamer - This unrivalled Queen of the western waters is undergoing very extensive repairs and improvements in our harbour, under the inspection of her well known and veteran commander, Mr. Joseph Whitney.

The Great Britain will, on the opening of the navigation, open her summer campaign on Lake Ontario with her usual regularity and promptness - leaving Prescott every Tuesday evening, Kingston on Wednesdays, and Niagara every Saturday afternoon.

The Oswego - By our advertising columns it will be seen that this very pleasant and handsome vessel will visit our harbor as early as the opening of the navigation will permit. The Oswego is a first rate sea boat, and her accommodations are excellent.
