p.2 H.M. Steamer Traveller was sold by Auction yesterday at the Dockyard. She was knocked down to Mr. James Russell for the comparatively small sum of 2300 Pounds. It is understood that there are two gentlemen most favorably known in the navigation of the Lake and River, connected with Mr. R. in the purchase. The Traveller will be fitted up immediately and placed on the route between Kingston and Toronto.

p.3 We understand that on Thursday last the Dart, a high-pressure steamer, burst her boiler a little below Smiths Falls, by which one man was scalded to death, and another very severely wounded. [Perth Courier]
