p.2 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.

Railroad Meeting at Watertown - steamer Prince of Wales is to take interested people as far as Sacketts Harbour.

p.3 Steamer Sovereign - On Friday evening, 15th inst., the steamer Sovereign left Kingston at eleven minutes after seven, and arrived at Toronto at 20 after ten on Saturday morning - thus making the passage in 15 hours and 9 minutes, including stoppages of 45 minutes at Cobourg and Port Hope. Her running time therefore was 14 hours and 24 minutes, being upwards of 12 1/2 miles per hour. [British Canadian]
