Toronto (Steamboat), 1 Apr 1842
- Full Text
The Canadian authorities offer for sale the engine, boilers and machinery of the armed steamer TORONTO, (late GEN. PORTER,) now lying at Grand River on this lake. It is of 100 horse power. From this it would seem this vessel is to be disbanded and a new one built in her place, after the model of the MINOS.
