The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Daily British Whig (Kingston, ON), Dec. 10, 1849

Full Text



D. Bethune, Esq. has obtained the contract for carrying the mails between Kingston and Hamilton, commencing at the opening of navigation next spring. The mails will thus be brought direct from Kingston, and so arrive some hours earlier than they have usually done. The Princess Royal, the Sovereign and the Magnet are to form the line. The two former are now at Niagara, undergoing thorough repair, and being entirely refitted. They are to have promenade decks, and will be finished like the North River boats.

The Eclipse is again on her route, having been repaired at Niagara, and will run between Wellington Square and Toronto as often as practicable through the winter. She is an old favorite, and rightly so, for we do not know a better sea-boat on the Lake. She is in capital sailing trim, and ready to buffet many another storm on boisterous Ontario. Capt. Harrison ranks high amongst his professional brethren, and with the public, and not unjustly so. [Hamilton Express]
