The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Dart (Steamboat), machinery disabled, 4 Dec 1858

Full Text

The steamboat, OCEAN, made her final trip of the season, Friday last and has been laid up at this port for the winter. When she arrived, Saturday morning, she was covered with an icy armor wherever the water had struck her. The MAY QUEEN will make tri-weekly trips, weather permitting, until the close of the season. The BAY CITY has discontinued daily trips and will hereafter run to Sandusky, Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. The FOREST QUEEN will continue to run to Saginaw and the DART and RUBY to Port Huron until ice in the river renders it impassable. The MICHIGAN is now making her last trip to Green Bay. The WABASH VALLEY now in Buffalo is expected to make one more trip to Green Hay before going into winter quarters.
