p.3 Steam Boat William IV - We are credibly informed that the sale of the above boat, as advertised to be sold by public auction on the 22nd inst. at Prescott, took place accordingly, and that A. Jones Esq., one of the largest proprietors, was the purchaser.

It is understood that she is to be hauled out immediately and repaired, and then placed on the route between Dickenson's Landing, Prescott, Brockville, and Kingston, as a towboat.

It is confidently expected that by such an arrangement merchandise and passengers via the St. Lawrence from Montreal, will reach Kingston in 4 days on an average, thereby avoiding the tedious route of the Ottawa and Rideau Canal. [Montreal Herald]

A CARD - The undersigned tenders his sincere thanks to the Kingston Marine Railway Company for the interest they have taken in the late Sale of the Steam Boat Wm. the 4th, and particularly to that spirited individual John Counter, Esq., who has acted as their agent.

A Stockholder.
