p.3 New Steam Boats - We yesterday visited the shipyard at Mississauga Point, and were agreeably surprised to find two fine steamers in frame, and nearly planked. They are constructed with red cedar, the most durable wood that grows in our forests, and promises to be extremely light and substantial. One is the property of Mr. Bethune - the other belongs to Mr. Parker, and both are intended to navigate the Rideau Canal.
