p.3 The Garden Island - A Montreal despatch says: "The fine ocean barque Garden Island, built by Calvin & Breck, of Kingston, was locked through the Lachine Canal into the harbour yesterday. She will be at Montreal port for a few days and will then proceed to Quebec to take on a load of timber for England. Her cost is estimated at $8,000. (sic) A vessel as large as the Garden Island has probably never passed through the canal.
