p.3 Her Majesty's Steamer Traveller, Lieut. Harper Commander, arrived from a cruise. Commodore Sandom returned in the Traveller from a tour of inspection to Lake Erie.


Capt. W.T. Johnson.

This new comfortable and fast sailing Steam Boat will ply on the Bay of Quinte for the remainder of the Season as follows:


Will leave Kingston on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings at 9 o'clock, and arrive at River Trent in the evening, touching at the intermediate ports.


Will leave Belleville Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday mornings, at 7 o'clock, and stopping as usual at the intermediate ports, arrive at Kingston in time for the Lake Boats going up and the River Boats going down.

Kingston, May 1839.

N.B. - Passengers leaving the Bay of Quinte for Montreal by the Albion, on the above mentioned days, will arrive at Kingston to meet the fast sailing Steamer Brockville, which runs to the Head of the Long Sault.

Another Indication of Good Feeling - A boat belonging to her Majesty's hired schooner Montreal was fired upon from the American shore near French Creek, by a party of men armed with muskets.
