p.3 Opposition Steamer Between Kingston and Oswego - The Agent of the steamer William IV, being determined to pay off Brother Jonathan for sending U.S. steamers to tow rafts on the Bay of Quinte, has placed this powerful vessel as a day boat on the route between Kingston and Oswego. The William IV is a good sea boat and speedy besides, and will no doubt obtain a share of the business - more particularly as her agent charges only half as much for freight and passengers as the American steamers.
