The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Canadian Watchman (Kingston, ON), Oct. 1, 1830

Full Text

p.63 - The Farmer's Journal states that a company have it in contemplation to build a steam-boat at Chippewa, to ply upon the upper lakes. There is at present no steam-boat belonging to the Canadian side on those lakes while the Americans have nine. It is observable that on Lake Ontario the Canadian steamboats exceed those of the Americans in speed as well as numbers.

We regret to learn that in consequence of high winds, the attempt made by Mr. Macan of this Town to tow rafts of Timber down the lake has failed. On Saturday last the vessels parted from the rafts. We hope that no accident will occur to vessels by running upon the Timber. [Niagara Herald]
