p.3 Opening of the Navigation - Our harbour is now nearly free of ice, and we hope shortly to see it filled with Steam Boats and other vessels.
The enterprising R. Hamilton, Esq. of Queenston, to whom the public are much indebted for the security, comfort, and convenience of lake travel, by the erection of the beautiful steam-boat Queenston, is now actively engaged in constructing a most elegant boat, to be called we understand, the Phoenix. We have witnessed with much pleasure her rapid progress, and by good judges she is pronounced to be the best model of a boat on the lake.
A very fine schooner is also now building, and is far advanced and we understand it is the intention of the proprietors and master builder, (Captain Stannard, from Black Rock) to launch both on the same day. [Niagara Herald]
