The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
British Whig (Kingston, ON), 4 Dec 1907

Full Text



Nearly all the Kingston sailors are back home for the winter, and their work is now over for another season. A few grain boats will arrive within the next few days, but another week will see the end. The boats are now getting into their winter quarters, and the different slips along the harbor are being filled up with boats.

The schooners Ford River and Kitchen were the last of the sailing vessels to make the trip across the lake, and as soon as their cargo is taken off, they will be laid up.

Marine Items.

The sloop Pilot carried a cargo of corn from Richardsons' to Rockwood asylum.

The sloop Maggie L. cleared on Tuesday afternoon, for Glenora, with a load of corn.

One of Calvin's tugs was used to break the ice around the Kingston & Pembroke railway wharf, so that the schooner Kitchen, with its cargo of coal, could get in.

The steamer Windsor, formerly known as the Iroquois, and purchased in the states by the M.T. Co., arrived, light, from Montreal, and will be laid up for the season.

The steamer Nevada arrived at Richardsons', Tuesday night, at seven o'clock, from Fort William, with 46,000 bushels of wheat. Considerable delay was caused in the unloading of the vessel, this morning, owing to the breaking of one of the main belts.
