p.3 The new Steam-Boat Neptune, built by Mr. Alexander Young, and owned by Messrs. H. Dickinson and Co. has commenced running on Lake St. Francis, in connection with their daily line of coaches and steamboats. The length of her keel is 113 feet, beam 22 feet, and draws only 31 1/2 inches of water. She has an Engine of 70 horse power, made by Messrs. John D. Ward & Co. It is believed that she will surpass in speed any boats on the St. Lawrence, and not fall far behind the new boat on the North River, between New York and Albany. [Courant]
