Full Text

The America, a new steamer of 60 horse power, built by the Niagara Dock Company for Mr. Bethune, and which is intended to ply between Toronto and Rochester, on Tuesday made a trial trip from this port to Lewiston and back, and performed the distance (14 miles, half against a strong current) in 62 minutes. The America is a handsome, well- fitted boat and looks remarkably well on the waters; her machinery works admirably. - Niagara Chronicle.
