The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
British Whig (Kingston, ON), March 3, 1837

Full Text

p.2 Lighthouses - The House of Assembly has granted £3500 for five lighthouses as follows: - one at Presqu'Isle £1000; at the mouth of the Thames on Lake Erie £1000; one at Port Colborne £500; one at Oakville £500, and one at Port Burwell £500.

p.3 The Steamboat Kingston was sold by Auction on Tuesday last, at least 156 shares were bought by Mr. Trowbridge, of Oswego, at £13 per share. The Chronicle tells us that the Kingston is intended for Lake Erie, to ply between Buffalo and Chippewa. We don't believe a word of it. She has too much beam to pass the Welland Canal Locks. Some arrangement probably will be made to continue her in the only trade for which she is fitted - that of the Bay of Quinte.
