p.3 We have been enjoying warm, balmy Summer weather during the present week. The Ice is giving way rapidly, and there is every prospect of the immediate opening of the Navigation. The Channel of the River in front of Kingston is now free from Ice, and we believe it is so altogether or nearly so to the Lake. We learn that one of the Lake Steamers will leave Toronto on Monday next for Kingston, and we have no doubt but that she will be able to enter our Harbour without difficulty.


The Steam Boat


Capt. W.T. Johnson,

Now receiving her Engine, and advertised to ply on the Bay of Quinte, on the opening of the Navigation, being contracted for to be finished by the first day of May ensuing, will not of course be ready until that date; but owing to the appearances of a very early opening of the navigation this season, a Steam Boat has been engaged to take the place of the Prince Edward, under charge of the Subscriber, until the new Boat shall be completed.

Days of Sailing Upwards from Kingston - Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, at 9 o'clock.

Downwards, Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday, at 9 o'clock.

W.T. Johnson.

Kingston, March 18th, 1842.
