The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
British Whig (Kingston, ON), July 13, 1889

Full Text



The yacht Hebe, Kingston, owned by ex-Commodore Carruthers, has reached Oswego.

William Leslie, Kingston, has made Capt. David H. Lyon an offer to raise the sunken steamer Armstrong and deliver her at Ogdensburg. The stockholders will consider the offer.

Some maliciously inclined persons have been circulating the report that there is a leak at No. 18, Cornwall canal, where Davis & Co. are excavating for the new lock gates, and that there will be a washout even greater than that which occurred last September. There is not the slightest foundation for the report, as the lock is now stronger than ever. The report, it is thought, was circulated with the view of causing annoyance to the new superintendent, Mr. Ross, and causing alarm among the Kingston and Montreal forwarders.
