p.3 Lady of the Lake - We were yesterday, in common with many others of less importance, attracted towards the Establishment of the Quebec Forwarding Company, by a novel looking craft, bearing the above poetic name. This vessel was built at Cleveland last winter, and is exceedingly well adapted for both freight and passage. Her extreme length is 143 feet. Her breadth of beam, 24 feet, 3 inches. Her tonnage 326; and her draught of water when loaded, 8 feet; 90 horse power, etc. She is capable of carrying 2600 bbls. Flour through the Welland Canal. She completed her present trip (which is her first from Cleveland) in 44 hours running, and during that time she burned only 20 cords of wood. Her boiler tubes are all of copper, similar to those of the Propeller Ireland, and all the pipes connected with the Engine, are also made of strong copper. Taking her all in all, she appears to us to be very perfect indeed.

Port of Kingston.
