p.2 Lake Arrangements - The steamboat Telegraph has been chartered by the Government, and manned by a Company of regular troops. She is to carry from 3 to 5 guns, and to cruise about the lake whenever any violations of neutrality or of the public peace are threatened. She will have a special eye to Johnson and his movements, who will doubtless soon find his situation alarmingly uncomfortable, placed as he is between two fires. It was the right of the Telegraph to be selected for this business, as she already bears the imprint of hostile balls. (Stuff!) She is a fine little boat, and for her power, is unsurpassed for speed, by any steamer on the lake. Success to her efforts to preserve our faith inviolate, and punish aggression, from whatever quarter they proceed. [Rochester Daily Advocate]

p.3 Lieut.-Gen Sir John Colborne and others arrive on steamer Kingston and proceed to Niagara in steamboat Great Britain.
