p.2 Lake Erie Steamers - A new boat, the Crescent City, just completed for the New York and Erie Rail Road Company, made her trial trip and succeeded to the perfect satisfaction of every one. The steamers on Lake Erie are, many of them, sights to open the eyes, but the Crescent City, from all accounts, eclipses anything heretofore appearing on the Lakes. She is 333 feet in lenght, and of 1,700 tons burthen, and is fitted up in most magnificent style. Her sister-ship the Queen of the West is of the same size and style. [Brantford Herald]

Sault Ste. Marie Canal - work on Michigan side continues.
