p.2 The Steamer London - The following extract from the Detroit Free Press of the 25th ultimo, shows that the London maintains her position as one of the "crack boats" of the upper lake, although fears were entertained that the erection of the upper deck cabin would diminish her speed:-

"We see that the fine steamer London, Capt. Van Allen, is out again for the season with a splendid new upper deck cabin, and everything else "accordingly." Her last trip from Buffalo was done up in gallant style, and one of the shortest ever made, being of some twenty-three and a half hours from port to port. Success to her and her efficient and gentlemanly officers."

p.3 Another New Steamboat - We are happy to learn that it is the intention of Messrs. McPherson & Crane to contract immediately for the construction of a large and powerful Steamboat between Bytown and Grenville. This Boat is to be built at this place, and is to be ready for business next Spring. - there can be no doubt about this. [Bytown Packet]
