p.2 The Steamer Maple Leaf - This superb steamboat, which met with an accident in her machinery about a month ago, left Kingston yesterday, to resume her position in the Rochester and Toronto Steamer Line. She had a new cylinder made at the Kingston Foundry, which, with other repairs, has given her a complete new engine. The agent, Mr. Holland, came down from Toronto, and declares himself greatly satisfied with the execution of the work done by the Kingston Foundry, and says, moreover, that not only has the work been executed with great expedition, but that the charge is extremely moderate. The Maple Leaf, under the command of the able Captain Kerr, left Kingston harbour yesterday in a more complete state than at any period since she was launched. [Whig, yesterday]
