PLOUGH BOY Steamer (C), ashore at Saugeen River, broke machinery, got off and repaired. Property loss $2,500
      Buffalo Commercial Advertiser
      January 31, 1857 (1856 casualty list)

      . . . . .

      STEAMER PLOUGH BOY. - The rumor that the steamer PLOUGH BOY was
sunk, turned out to be a mistake. On her upward trip, as she was entering the mouth
of the Saugeen River, she grounded, and was obliged to lay there some two days, at
the expiration of which time she succeeded in getting off without material damage.
In coming from Saugeen to Goderich, she broke her cylinder, and we learn that the
steamer CANADIAN was to tow her into Goderich yesterday. It will take some
time to repair, and meanwhile the MOHAWK is to take her place on the route. -
Detroit Adv., 10th.

      . . . . .

      The Detroit Advertiser of yesterday, states that the steamer PLOUGH BOY,
which broke her cylinder some time since, has been thoroughly repaired, and has
resumed her trips again between that port, Goderich and Saugeen. She went up
Tuesday.
