p.2 Opening of the Navigation - We learn that the Steamer Transit, Capt. Richardson, is already plying between Toronto and Niagara. The Steamer St. Lawrence is advertised to commence her trips on the first of April, on the south side of the Lake. She will proceed from Oswego to Lewiston on that day. The ice on the Bay and River in front of Kingston retains its position yet, with some considerable appearance of firmness, though the middle of the channel is partly open. That highly respectable and meritorious class of gentlemen, the steamboat commanders, who muster in this place in considerable force, are preparing with energy for the opening of the summer campaign.
p.3 Our Internal Improvements - benefits of completion of canals:
"Many vessels that are now laid up from December to May, would find it to their advantage to proceed to Sea in Fall,and come back in Spring with return cargoes...."
Notice - H.& S. Jones, proprietors of the steamer Albion, hereby notify the friends and patrons of said boat, that, on the opening of the navigation, she will recommence plying on the Bay of Quinte. March 12th, 1840.
