The Steam Boat Frontenac, which is now owned by John Hamilton, Esq. and commanded by Capt. Mackenzie, made her first trip to Queenston last week. The Charlotte and Dalhousie continue to ply as usual, the former between Kingston and the head of the Bay of Quintie, and the latter between Kingston and Prescott.
