p.2 Two new steam vessels are in the course of erection at the shipyard of the Marine Railway Company - one, the St. Andrews, building for the Company, is, we believe, intended for the canal - the other, the St. Thomas, is to be fitted with the Ericsson Propeller, for a company in London, U.C., who are about making the experiment of applying the Propeller to lake as well as river and canal navigation. The St. Thomas is intended to make the voyage from the upper lakes direct to Montreal by the river and return by the canal, which, if successful - and we have no doubt of its success - will open a new era in our navigation.
