p.2 New Steam Boat - The Steamer built at Oakville, by Wm. Chisholm Esq., has commenced running daily between this port and Toronto, Sundays excepted. The Oakville, which is a very handsome boat and elegantly fitted up, offers superior accommodation to merchants and others desirous of proceeding to York and returning the same day, as they will have some hours to transact business, and may return to Port Hamilton by six o clock the same evening. This we presume will be a strong inducement to the western merchants to proceed by her, and no doubt the enterprising proprietor will find his capital profitably invested. When Mr. Lodor's Boat is completed, she will make a third belonging to Port Hamilton. She was launched some time ago, and it is expected she will be finished in the spring. We are informed she will be the largest boat on Lake Ontario, except the Great Britain, and will have two engines of 80 horse power each. [Western Mercury]

A most astonishing draught of fish was taken on Thursday morning last, at Wellington, at one haul, namely 104 Sturgeon, averaging at least 40 lbs. a piece, equal to 4000 lbs. weight; besides a few pickerel etc. They were caught on Lake Ontario, not far from the shore, there were no less than three double waggon loads of them, and some of the Sturgeon were so long and so heavy that a very powerful man could scarcely lift them with both his hands over a very low fence adjoining the Grove at Wellington. [Hallowell Free Press]

p.3 Notice - The undersigned having entered into Copartnership from the 5th inst. the business heretofore carried on by Robert Drummond in the Brewing, Distillery and Forwarding Line, etc. etc. will be conducted in future by the Subscribers, under the name and firm of Drummond, McCutchon & Co.

Kingston 19th August, 1834 Robert Drummond James McCutchon
