- Full Text
The Kent (Canada) Advertiser of the 15th says that "a fine vessel, of 480 tons carpenter's measurement, was launched on Saturday last from the shipyard of sheriff Waddell, in this town. She was christened the GEORGE MOFFATT, and is intended to ply as a freight boat between Chatham and Montreal. She will not be fitted with screws as a propeller, but with narrow paddle wheels of great circumference, situated well aft, pollywog fashion, so as to admit her passages through the canals.
