Rochester Telegraph (Rochester, NY), Sept. 1, 1818

Buffalo, August 25.
The new Steam-Boat Walk-in-the-Water, lately finished at Black Rock, came up the rapids on Saturday, opposite to this village. On Sunday afternoon she left here for Detroit, touching at the intervening ports, on an experimental voyage, under the superintendence of Mr. McQueen, the engineer who constructed her machinery.
Her motion through the water, from this place, as correctly as could be judged from the shore, was at the rate of seven miles an hour; and from every appearance, we doubt not that she will be found to fully answer the valuable purposes for whch she is designed.
We understand that Dr. Stewart, the principal proprietor, intends on her return, to gratify the inhabitants of this village and its vicinity, with a short excursion of pleasure on the lake.
