KINGSTON, Sept. 13.

Admiral Lake arrived in town on Monday morning last in the steam boat Queenston, Captain Whiting -- and in the afternoon of the same day proceeded by the same conveyance to York and Niagara, on a tour to the Falls.

Kingston Chron. Sept. 22

The Hon. and Right Revrend [sic] the Lord Bishop of Quebec arrived in the Queenston on Monday last.

...His Lordship left this place on Wednesday morning in the Steam-boat Frontenac for Brockville and the Bathurst District.--Ib.


Steam Boats.--The present seems to be the period of misfortune to the Lake and River navigation, as we think will be readily granted when we inform our readers, that the Steam Boat Queenston on her trip upwards, last week, is said to have ran down the Kingston Packet. Whether the blame is to be attached to the Queenston or the Packet we have not learned. The encounter, however, has not prevented the Queenston making the usual trips.

On Tuesday morning last, the Steam Boat Canada which runs between York and Niagara, whilst clearing the Niagara river, came in contact with the American Boat Martha Ogden, which was materially damaged, she having been near sinking.

The Steam Boat Toronto, is stated to have burst her steam conductor, which has prevented her accomplishing her usual trips down the river.

The Steam Boat Frontenac which has escaped accident during this general visitation, made a trip to Prescott for the first time, last week, and landed several passengers this place on passing among whom was the R. Revd. Lord Bishop of Quebec, who has proceeded on a visiting tour to Perth where he was to have preached and administered[ ] yesterday. He is expected to be in this place tomorrow.
