p.2 The Steamer Maple Leaf - Another large, powerful and elegant steamer has recently been added to the already extensive list of Canadian steam vessels afloat on the waters of Old Ontario. The Maple Leaf, built at the Kingston Marine Railway Yard, for Donald Bethune's Company, has been taken to Toronto to be gaily furnished, and is now permanently, that is for the rest of the season, on her route between Ogdensburgh and the head of the lake. She makes two trips every week, and calls at Kingston every time; coming down on Tuesday and Friday morning very early, and going up every Tuesday and Friday evening, as per advertisement, stopping at the St. Lawrence Wharf. The Maple Leaf is commanded by Capt. Wilkinson, one of the old Seamen-Captains, who superintended her building and equipment at Kingston. May her shadow never grow less!
