The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
The Canals
Syracuse Journal (Syracuse, NY), 26 Apr 1852

Full Text

The Canals. The Oneida Lake is still blockaded by ice, and boats from the east bound for Oswego will be obliged to come by way of this city for the present.

Business at this point started rather sluggishly, owing to the insufficiency of water. UP to 6 o’clock last evening there were 20 clearances — all loaded, except one, with corn from Canton, Camillus and Bellisle. The amount of tolls received was $543.37. The water on the long level east was not high enough to permit the lockage of boats. The water was not let in here until Monday night, and consequently there have been no boats loaded.
