p.3 The beautiful steam boat William IV, arrived at this Port on Sunday morning last from Prescott and left this morning on her way up the Lake. Upon inspection we were struck with the fine appearance of this boat,- the good taste of the painting and the care with which the accommodations have been improved are worthy of praise. This boat on the whole never was in better condition for business, and needs no stronger recommendation to the confidence of the travelling public than the fact that she still remains under the superintendance of Captain Hilliard, whose kind attentions to the comfort of passengers, and prompt application to business we have personally experienced, not only since he has been connected with this boat but while he had charge of the Brockville.

The United States came up from Ogdensburgh yesterday and left this morning for Oswego. A gentleman by the name of Church was a passenger and with his family was moving to the West, and although he retired the evening before in his usual health, was found dead in his birth the next morning.

The elegant steam boat Brockville is laying at the wharf, and is in most capital condition. It does one good to witness the handsome appearance - the happy arrangement - the admirable accommodations of this Boat. The Gentlemen's Cabin is 84 feet in length, and the furniture is of the best. The Ladies' Cabin with its state rooms is as it should be. Capt. Calder is known to be second to none in his agreeable attentions to the wishes of the traveller, and this boat will doubtless be a favorite on the Bay.

The Great Britain left about one o'clock this afternoon on her way up the Lake, and the Lady of the late gallant Col. Tidy, takes a passage to visit the upper parts of the Province, before she embarks for England.

The Traveller landed the Members of our House of Assembly belonging to this part of the Province, somewhere near the village of Bath, and from thence they were conveyed by land to Town on Saturday night, and proceeded on their way down by the Sir James Kempt on Sunday.
