LAUNCH. - of the steamboat CONSTITUTION at Oakville by George K. Chisholm on January 19th.
      Cobourg Star
      February 13, 1833

The new Steam-Boat CONSTITUTION, lately built at Oakville, U. C.( Capt. Crichell, R. N.) arrived at this port on the night of the 22d inst. This beautiful swift sailing boat is an improvement on the mould of the St. GEORGE, but rather a size less. On a trial with the steamer KINGSTON, which is considered the swiftest of the Bay of Quinte to this port, the CONSTITUTION outsailed her some distance. Her neat, rich and amply furnished cabins reflect much credit on the taste of the enterprising proprietors. The Gentlemen's cabin contain 25 berths and the Ladies' 12; with each a beautiful Damask Curtain. These cabins are supplied with the handsomest set of rust bottomed chairs, we have as yet seen - manufactured at Oakville. This boat is supposed to leave Prescott every Thursday, during the season, for the Head of the Lake. --- Grenville Gazette.
