p.2 Removal of a Nuisance - We are happy to learn that the sunken steamer, lying a short distance out in the bay, has at length been brought under the notice of the Town Council, who have given orders for the owners to be written to, with the view of its immediate removal. This has long been called for, as it presents itself to the eye only as a nuisance, and as an obstruction to the navigation. [British (Toronto) Canadian]

Montreal Gazette, Sept. 10, 1844

p.2 The Propeller St. Thomas arrived here on Tuesday, bound for Dundas, from Montreal, with a cargo of iron, for J.B. Ewart, Esq., and others of Dundas. She proceeded up the Desjardins Canal, and will take a cargo of flour from Dundas for Montreal direct. This is the first vessel which has made the voyage direct, and must be considered as the forerunner of a great trade which this section of the country will be enabled to carry on with the lower ports.
