p.2 The Steamer Kingston - The steamer Kingston, which was sunk by an unfortunate accident some weeks ago, arrived down the Canal at 12 o'clock on Sunday night, and was taken into Tait and Power's Dry Dock. Efforts were made in the first place to try and raise her by pumps alone, but eventually barges, timbers and screw apparatus had to be procured from Kingston. She was raised on Saturday by means of 24 screws worked by 30 men, the pumps being kept going at the same time. Steam was then got up on board, and on Sunday afternoon the steamer started from the Split Rocks, just above the Cascade Rapids, propelled by her own engine. The damage to the hull is in the centre, immediately under the engines, and comparitively slight. To facilitate the operation of raising the boat, a considerable portion of her upper works had to be cut away immediately abaft the engine; to renew this will take at least a month, with all the expedition that can be made, and in the meantime, there are only 4 boats running, thereby leaving a blank day in the week.
