The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Queenston (Steamboat), aground, 28 Sep 1826

Full Text

Our steam boats have of late been truly unfortunate. In addition to the catalogue of disasters already noted, we have to state that the TORONTO ran aground last night in coming up from Prescott, but was got off without sustaining any material damage. The steam boat QUEENSTON also ran upon a shoal near Reed's Bay, at the upper end of Wolfe Island some time in the course of last night, and Capt. Whiting has been obliged to come in and obtain the aid of the FRONTENAC, and of some boats to lighten his vessel and get her afloat. The wind has been rather heavy during the morning, and the QUEENSTON is said to lie in an exposed position---nevertheless, we trust she will not receive any serious damage.
