p.3 The present would appear to be the season of steam-boat accidents. We are informed that the American boat, Wm. Avery, while at French Creek on Thursday, broke her engine in several places. The engines in this vessel and the Black Hawk are formed on a new plan, which, as yet has not been very successful. They were made, together with that of the United States, by Mr. Wm. Avery, of Syracuse.
N.H. Baird Esq., the gentleman selected by His Excellency the Lieut-Governor to survey the River Trent, with a view to the making of a Canal, is now actively employed in this duty.
Steam-Boat Notice - Rideau Canal - The Steam-Boat Rideau will leave By-town for Kingston every Monday and Thursday, and the Steam-Boat Margaret will leave Kingston for By-town every Monday and Thursday of each week; the two steamboats thus making a regular twice-a-week line between Bytown and Kingston. They will meet each other on their respective routes at Pike's Falls.
For freight or passage apply to the Captains on board, or to Robert Drummond. Kingston, Sept. 21st, 1833.
