p.2 Prince of Wales - This beautiful and fast-sailing steamer has commenced her regular trips on the Bay of Quinte, forming an Evening Line in connection with the Vulcan - leaving Kingston at 6 P.M. on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

Coroner's Inquest - A coroner's inquest was held on the 20th inst., on the body of a man found floating a little below Cedar Island the evening previous by the crew of the Schooner True Briton, and brought up to Town. It is supposed that he was one of the hands on board of the schooner Chief Justice Robinson, said to have been lost from on board about a month ago.

We direct the attention of our readers to a Schooner, the property of Mr. Bunnell of Brantford, lately built by the Niagara Dock Company. Length 90 feet; beam 19 feet 5 inches; 81 tons burthen; stiff built, and draws, when loaded, 4 feet 2 inches of water. Her first trip was as follows; Took in a cargo at Brantford equal to 1400 barrels of flour, sailed down the Grand River, June 16. Arrived at Montreal July 6th. Left Montreal with passengers and a full cargo, via the Ottawa and Rideau, and arrived at Toronto, after working against head winds, on the 24th instant. This is the first schooner, we understand, that has successfully navigated the rapids - and it will be something for all parties - the builder, the owner and the captain - to pride themselves upon. [Toronto Colonist]




The New Steamer


Capt. Charles B. Crysler,

Will perform three trips a week on the Bay as follows:


Leaves Kingston on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday Evenings at 6 o'clock.


Leaves Belleville on Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday Evenings at 6 o'clock.

And Picton, at 5 o'clock, A.M., up and down.

As the Prince of Wales leaves Kingston after the arrival of the River and American boats, Passengers for the Bay can proceed immediately on without any detention. And by this arrangement the Inhabitants of the Bay can transact business in Kingston and return the same Evening.

Kingston, 28th July , 1842.
