Canada (Steamboat), aground, 1 Dec 1836

STEAM BOAT CANADA.---As this boat was entering our harbor on Friday night, from
Kingston, the wind blowing a gale at the time, she was driven on the east shore where she grounded so firmly that it was impossible to get her off. The high winds that have prevailed since that time have wore her about until she is now perfect wreck, and will soon go to pieces----all the cargo and furniture, we learn have been saved. She was commanded by Captain Peavy, an experienced and competent seaman, who we learn was part owner, and no blame we believe can be attached to him for the accident.--------Oswego Palladum

      . . . . .

      The steamboat CANADA was driven ashore at Oswego, by the late gale, where she has since become a perfect wreck.
