History

Approx. 105x28x6 Owned by Yarker, Vanalstyne & Bennett, Kingston; to Ottawa & Rideau Forwarding Co. 1835. Was to have been launched 31/03/34 but stuck on ways; pulled into water 02/04/34. Had berths for 20 in gents' cabin, 12 in ladies' on deck. Promenade deck extended "far forward". "To elegance of structure she has no pretension; on the contrary she is strongly and plainly built…. but for comfort and convenience of passengers, few vessels on these waters can surpass her" (Kingston "Whig"). Frozen in at Bytown by early winter November 1834. Hit a stump and sank 21/10/35 Rideau Canal at Merrickville, abandoned.
