p.2 Military Changes - Yesterday morning the new steamer Magnet, Capt. Sutherland, brought down from Hamilton, the Right Wing of the 82nd Regiment, late from London; and the same morning the Mail Steamer Canada, Capt. Lawless, took the detachment on to Montreal. On Thursday evening the Canada brought up from Lachine the Right Wing of the 20th Regiment, and yesterday the detachment went upwards in the Magnet..... [Whig]

p.3 The Magnet made her appearance in our waters on Friday morning last, having on board the right wing of the 82nd Regiment. Her stay was but short, consequently we had not an opportunity of going on board. Her motion on the water is very elegant; and her speed is decidedly very superior, being propelled by a most powerful engine. At a distance, the Magnet has a very attractive appearance. We understand that she has commenced her regular trips between this place and Hamilton. She is commanded by Capt. Sutherland, who also owns a part of her, having invested quite largely.
