British Whig (Kingston, ON), July 17, 1835

p.1 We take the liberty of assuring the Morning Courier of Montreal, that he has been misinformed as to the facts of the late squabble between the St. George and Great Britain. The letter which he publishes from the Toronto Courier, and which he says is intended "to correct false impressions which may have been propagated by a partial account that appeared in the Kingston newspapers," was written and published in Toronto many days ere any counter statement appeared in any Kingston paper, and was in truth, the gauntlet thrown down for the Kingston editors to take up. The Morning Courier also says, the party who requested him to copy, "can vouch for the truth of its statements." Now all we have to say is, that hundreds of bystanders witnessed the affray, and all with whom we have conversed, give a vastly different account of the matter.

July 16 - The steamer Rideau, Bowen, with barge Francis in tow.
