p.1 Diabolical Attempt to Burn The Steamer Great Britain - Arrest of Lett and Dafoe

- while lying in the harbor of Oswego, on Saturday last. [Oswego Herald of Monday last]

Trade of Kingston - As an instance of the increasing trade, and consequent prosperity of Kingston, we may mention that there were 33 Schooners in Port, on Monday morning last, chiefly laden with breadstuffs from the West. It is really gratifying to view the forest of masts with which our harbour is continually studded.

p.3 1840 - Bay of Quinte - The New Steam Boat Albion, W.T. Johnson, Master, leaves Kingston for the head of the Bay every Monday, Wednesday and Friday Mornings, at 11 o'clock precisely, and leaves Belleville every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday Mornings, at 7 o'clock. This Boat touches at all the intermediate Towns and stopping Places, both on her upward and downward Trips, and occasionally at the Isle of Tanti. Kingston, June 4th, 1840.
