p.3 The new Steam-Boat, Alciope, is now afloat, and taking in her machinery below the King's wharf. [Niagara Herald]

St. Catherine's, April 24th - This day, precisely at 2 o'clock P.M. was launched in handsome style, into the Welland Canal, the schooner which for some time has been constructing in this village, named the Welland Canal, of St. Catherines, of 100 tons burden, being the 1st vessel that ever floated upon the waters of this canal. She was erected by Mr. Armington, master builder, under the superintendence of Capt. Northrup, and is allowed by judges to be of an excellent model, and first rate workmanship; not surpassed, perhaps, by any vessel on the lakes. The enterprising owners are Messrs. Monson, Merritt, and Chace. Her first trip will be to Prescott, laden with produce, Capt. Northrup, Master, to clear this port in eight or ten days. [Farmer's Journal]
