p.2 An Old Time Steamer - The Toronto Weekly Register, of September 1822, quotes the following paragraphs from the Kingston Chronicle relative to a new steamer called the Dalhousie:

"On Thursday night the new steamboat Dalhousie made her first entry into this port. This vessel has been built at Prescott and supplied with an engine of Canadian manufacture, which, being of twenty horsepower, propels her at the rate of seven miles per hour. The accommodation for passengers, considering the small dimensions of the vessel, are very well arranged. As two steamboats now ply between Prescott and Kingston, every facility is afforded for travelling."


Swift's wharf: steamer Rideau King cleared for Ottawa.

The schooner Voges clears today from Booth's wharf for Oswego.

The schooner Metzner arrived at Mallen's, from Oswego with coal.

Craig's wharf: steamers Ocean and Lake Michigan down; Persia up; Alexandria down tonight.

Richardsons' elevator: schooners Two Brothers, from Trenton, Highland Beauty from Wellington; Granger from the islands.

p.6 The Vessel In Port - The wreck of the steamer White Star, in tow of tug Mary of Toronto, stopped in Kingston for a couple of hours this afternoon. The steamer which for the past two or three years has been running between Toronto and Oakville, was badly burned in Toronto last summer. The wreck has been purchased by Capt. Leslie, who is taking her down to Montreal, where she will be rebuilt.

To Arrive On Wednesday - The steamer Advance, purchased by the M.T. company, will arrive here on Wednesday, in tow of the company's new steel tug. She was damaged by fire last fall at Collingwood and is to be partially rebuilt. The Advance is now at Port Colborne.
