p.3 New Steamer - The new steamboat Porcupine built last winter at Prescott for the O. & R. Company, arrived on Sunday last, at Niagara, where she had repaired to receive her engine manufactured by the Dock Foundry in that town. The Porcupine in size a Canal Boat, is one of the fastest vessels on the lake, having an engine of 50 horse power, with an 8' stroke and although unsuitable for the Rideau Canal, will form a useful appanage (sic) for Messrs. Macpherson & Crane's means of transportation. She is commanded by our old friend, Capt. Drummond. [Whig]
