The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
British Whig (Kingston, ON), Sept. 11, 1835

Full Text

p.1 Rideau Forwarding Company - Capt. Brush, the Agent for this Company at Kingston, and our indefatigable townsman, Mr. John Counter, returned home in the early part of the week from an extensive tour of the Canadian Lakes, relative to the business of the Company. They visited in succession, the American ports of Oswego, Rochester, Buffalo, Cleaveland and Detroit, where they established Forwarding Agents; and returned to Kingston by way of Sandwich, London, St. Thomas, Hamilton, Toronto, Port Hope and Cobourg. Their labour at these places have been highly successful. At no period were the commercial prospects of this town as a forwarding depot, in a more satisfactory state than they are at present. Would the wealthy townspeople but aid the efforts of this public spirited Company, all might yet be well.



Sept. 8th - The steamer Rideau, Capt. Bowen, with barges Trader & Iroquois, goods and 43 passengers (consignees listed.)


Sept. 7th - The steamer Thomas McKay, Chambers, with flour, pork, etc. Bytown.

Sept. 9th - The steamer Margaret, Moorhouse, with whiskey and pork for Perth and Bytown.

Sept. 10th - The barges Iroquois and Trader, per St. Lawrence, with Naval Stores, 103 blls. ashes and 467 blls. Flour. (consignees listed)
