p.2 Great Steamboat Owner's Meeting - at Kingston.

-The Peerless - The beautiful New Iron Steamer Peerless was launched safely into her future element on Thursday the 5th; owing to an accident arising from the settling of the ground under the ways, the attempted launch on the 27th ult., was a failure - we are happy to see her at last safe in the water, where she will belie both her name and appearance of she does not take the lead of everything afloat on the Lake, for certainly a more beautifully modelled vessel was never seen on these waters. The Peerless was brought out in parts from the Clyde, her machinery is of the most powerful kind, and Messrs. Heron & Dick, her enterprising owners may congratulate themselves on possessing so fine a boat. On another occasion when she is completed we mean to give a particular description of this boat, which is destined for the transit or ferry between Niagara and Toronto. The works of Niagara Dock appear to be in active operation this winter, no less than six steamers are lying there, two of them the Peerless and Boston and a Propeller Brantford, are getting in new machinery - and the Rochester, the Admiral and Princess Royal are lying up for winter.
