p.2 Steamboats - Yesterday 3 new steamboats, intended for the Canal and River navigation, arrived here from Niagara. We understand 2 more are to follow. The 3 which have now arrived are owned respectively by Messrs. McGibbon, Ferguson & Co.; Sanderson & Murray; and Ross, Mathie & Co. The descent of the river by steam having been successfully tried, the building and employment of these boats for that purpose will afford facilities not only for freight, but for passengers, not hitherto enjoyed.

About 20 schooners left Kingston this morning for the upper ports.

The Steamer

CLOTHIER.

The Proprietors have much pleasure in announcing to the Public that their fast sailing Steamer, the Clothier, will be ready to commence her regular trips between

Kemptville and Bytown,

On Monday, second of May next.

The Clothier will leave Kempville on the mornings of Monday, Wednesday and Friday, at 9 o'clock A.M.; and Bytown on the mornings of Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, at 5 o'clock A.M., arriving at Kemptville in time to enable the Passengers to reach Prescott by stage the same evening.

By this pleasant and expeditious route passengers will be conveyed from Bytown to Kingston in the short period of

One and a Half Days.

To such as feel disposed to test the virtues of the celebrated Caledonia Springs, this route offers peculiar facilities, being decidedly the most agreeable as well as the nearest course from the upper part of the Province and neighbouring States.

The Proprietors trust their exertions for the convenience and comfort of the Travelling Community will be such as to merit that patronage which they now respectfully solicit.

Kemptville, 2nd April, 1842. Lyman Clothier, & Co.
