Description
Full Text

The WILLIAM & JOHN, a Durham boat belonging to this port in charge of Mr. Benjamin Tucker, proceeded on Saturday the 13 th. instant to the Port of Montreal, discharged her cargo of nearly 400 barrels of flour, and returned to this place last Saturday, having completed the trip in seven days and three hours. No instance of similar expedition is known on the river - and it is not probable that the trip will soon again be accomplished in so short a time, as the boat was peculiarly favored by the winds.
