British Whig (Kingston, ON), Dec. 30, 1845

p.3 The manufactured material to construct the two Iron Steamboats for Messrs. Egan and Aumond to ply on the Chaudiere and Chatts Lakes respectively, arrived immediately before the close of the navigation. They will be ready for the earliest navigation in the Spring; and will be a great convenience to the travelling community on the Ottawa above Bytown. We hear nothing of the new Steamboat that was to be constructed to ply between Bytown and Grenville. Perhaps the contemplated enlargement of the Grenville Canal so as to admit Steamboats through from here to Montreal may have for the present thwarted the enterprise. At all these portages, viz.: where a great number of Locks have to be constructed - lines of railroad should be run. In this railroad age people will have no patience with these Locks.
