Travelling To And In Upper Canada [Part Only]

The Adelaide, the property of Robert Hamilton, Esq., is the first British Steamer that ever plied on Lake Erie. The engine, formerly in the Alciope, has been fitted into the Adelaide, which is a perfectly new boat, having accommodations for from fifty to sixty cabin passengers, with an awning deck to protect deck passengers from the weather. The Adelaide is commanded by Capt. Molloy, who has had from twelve to fourteen years experience on Lake Erie, and whose abilities as a seaman are well known. She leaves Chippawa as soon as the passengers by the United Kingdom reach her, and touches at the following ports, Waterloo, Gravelly Bay, Otter Creek, Port Stanley, Rondeau, Point Pelee, Amherstburgh, Sandwich and Detroit. This is a great public convenience to the portion of the Province, as opening a communication by water with a section of the country hitherto only accessible by schooner on our side of the Lakes.
