The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
British Whig (Kingston, ON), Dec. 1, 1837


Description
Full Text

p.3 Navigation is almost suspended for the year 1837. The steam boats Great Britain, Cobourg, St. George, Commodore Barrie, Queenston, Bytown, Cataraqui and Margaret are laid up in lavender at the several wharfs in town, and the only steam vessels now afloat in these waters, are the Brockville, Kingston and Sir James. These boats still continue to navigate the Bay of Quinte, but evidently on their last legs -unless indeed the present soft weather should enable them to make another trip a piece. In the early part of the week the ice had made strongly in the long reach above Scanlan's Wharf, but whether the rain and wind have dispersed it, we have not had precise information. Above the Cataraqui Bridge in Kingston harbor, the ice on Monday was sufficiently strong to permit foot passengers to pass, but it has now entirely disappeared.
