The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
British Whig (Kingston, ON), May 15, 1882

Full Text



The prop. Glenfinlas touched yesterday en route from Hamilton to Montreal.

Vessel and steamboat men have the blues. No season has opened less auspiciously than the present.

The following strs. called at Swift's wharf during yesterday and today: Armenia, from Toronto; City of Montreal, from Toronto; Persia, from Montreal, and Africa from Cleveland.

Swift's hoisting barge lies at the foot of Princess street, and is having her boiler and engine overhauled preparatory to the service of discharging some 15,000 tons of ore from Rideau Canal barges.

The arrivals reported at the Montreal Transportation Company's dock are: schr. Ida Walker, Port Hope and Cobourg, 12,088 bush. peas; schr. Erie Queen, Newcastle, Port Hope and Darlington, 15,043 bush. wheat; schr. D. Freeman, Port Whitby, 10,000 bush. wheat. The tug Champion brought up from Montreal three barges light.

Steamer Conqueror No. 1, a large side wheeled, iron steamer, formerly the property of Mr. J.G. Ross, Quebec, now owned by the Dominion Wrecking Company, has arrived here. She has splendid powerful engines, and is altogether well equipped for the special service for which she has been engaged. She will operate upon the lake until a new boat is built to replace her, one drawing less water. But this is not a contingency now pressing.
