p.3 For Liverpool Direct From Lake Ontario - The brigantine Lilla, of about 300 tons burthen, owned by Capt. Hunter and built at Portsmouth, near this city, has proceeded down the river, and will complete her cargo and outfit at Montreal, with the view of proceeding to Liverpool. An experiment of this kind has been often spoken of, but the Lilla is the 1st lake vessel which has actually been sent down the river for the purpose of an ocean voyage. We have not yet heard of her arrival at Montreal. A report was in circulation this morning that she grounded in the Lachine Rapids, but we think without any foundation. It is highly improbable, to say the least, that a descent of the Lachine Rapids would be attempted. [News]
