p.2 Steam Packet Lady of the Lake - Our readers will remember the flying visit made to Kingston by this steamer last season. We have now the pleasure of announcing that she is to be a constant visitor at this port, for a time at least. She touched her yesterday forenoon on her way to Ogdensburgh, being her first trip this season. The Lady of the Lake is one of the most elegantly finished boats on our waters, and is propelled by one of Allain's improved engines of about 100 horse power. She is also most conveniently and richly furnished - her State Rooms and Cabins will favorably compare with any of the far-famed Hudson River steamers. She has one of Francis's Life Boats on board for the safety of passengers, in case of accident, and is in every way well arranged for the comfort of travellers. We understand that it is the intention of the owners of this beautiful boat to run her between Oswego and Ogdensburgh, until the new steamer Rochester, now being finished at Oswego, is ready to take her place on this route. She leaves Oswego at 6 A.M., Sackett's Harbor at 9 A.M., and Kingston at noon, downwards, on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays: - and upwards, from Ogdensburgh at 6 A.M., Kingston 11 A.M., and Sackett's Harbor at 3 P.M., on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

We wish the Lady all success.

It may not be out of place here to mention that all the American steamers stop at Mr. Greer's Wharf, and the Lake and Bay boats also take their departure from the same place. The River steamers stop at the Commercial Wharf.

Rideau Canal - the News report that a recent statement from the House of Commons shows the Rideau Canal yielded £3000 over its expenses; (considered doubtful by this paper.)

p.3 Married - At Bath, on Thursday, 27th April, by the Rev. W.F. S. Harper, Rector, Alexander Crawford Macleroy, Esq. Surgeon of Her Majesty's Ship Niagara to Sarah, daughter of James Read, Esq. of March, in this Province.


Lost, in the month of January last, by the schooner William Jones, on her passage from Niagara to Toronto, 66 Barrels Tallow, marked "F & T Toronto." Thirteen barrels of the tallow were since picked up by the Captain of the schooner Hibernia in coming across the lake. Should any of the remaining 53 barrels be found by the Captains of vessels, it is requested that they will give information to the owners Freeland & Taylor of Toronto.
