p.2 The Steam Boat Cornwall, which has hitherto plied on Lake St. Francis, between Coteau du Lac and Cornwall, was run down the dangerous Rapids of the Coteau du Lac, Cedres, Split-Rock and Cascades, and thence through Lake St. Louis to Lachine in 3 hours and a half, on Thursday last, without accident; the proprietor, Mr. Dickinson, intends this Boat, as well as the steam boat St. Lawrence to run between Lachine and the Cascades, the ensuing season. The new Steam Boat Neptune of 70 horse power, built last season is to take the place of the Cornwall, on Lake St. Louis. [Courant]
