The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
British Whig (Kingston, ON), May 8, 1835

Full Text

p.1 Correction - The model of the steam engine shown to us last summer on board the St. George, was made by Mr. R. Fothergill, the chief engineer on board that steam packet, and not by his assistant, the present engineer of the Commodore Barrie.

A new steamboat, called the Penetanguishene, shortly intends to run between Penetanguishene and Cold Water, on Lake Huron. During the summer, the same boat will make three tours round the Northern Lakes, touching at the Sault Ste. Marie, St. Joseph's and Mackinaw; the first trip on the 18th of May.

The Margaret arrived from Bytown yesterday with 5 Government barges in tow, containing the luggage of the 24th Regt. She left for Bytown early this morning.
