THE EDITOR'S TRIP TO TORONTO.
....Another error, for which we have not so good an excuse, may as well now be corrected. In speaking of the British built steam boats, we mentioned that they drew more water than boats built on the American principle; this is incorrect, for Capt. Harper assures us that they would draw less water than the craft now in use in Canada, and gives as proof, that the St. George, Steam Packet between Liverpool and Dublin, a larger vessel than the St. George of Kingston, does not require so great a draught of water....
sale of Drummond's steam-boats to take place next Thursday.
