Daily British Whig (Kingston, ON), 25 March 1851 
TextNewspapers  Daily British Whig (Kingston, ON), 25 March 1851,   Spring Walk I Time the remorseless eater-up of all things has made our other annual revolution and compels us to take again that "Walk," which it seems but the other day to have been finished and ended. In youth the hours stand idly still; in early manhood, they glide along ,more swiftly but...
Daily British Whig (Kingston, ON), 7 April 1851 
TextNewspapers  Daily British Whig (Kingston, ON), 7 April 1851,   Spring Walk II Contrary to general expectation, the opening of Kingston Harbor has been greatly accelerated by favorable circumstances, and the consequence is, that it has taken the shipping interest somewhat by surprise. Every body is therefore doing everything in double quick time, and we...
Daily British Whig (Kingston, ON), 11 April 1851 
TextNewspapers  Daily British Whig (Kingston, ON), 11 April 1851,   Spring Walk III THE WHARVES AND WHARFINGERS OF KINGSTON: As various changes have taken place this season in the location of the several Forwarders and Wharfingers, a concise notice of such establishment may be found useful, and not out of place in this Our Walk." MCINTOSH'S WHARF.- Mr. ...
Daily British Whig (Kingston, ON), 12 April 1852 
TextNewspapers  Daily British Whig (Kingston, ON), 12 April 1852,   Spring Walk I One could think that fine weather would never come again. Winter lingering in the lap of Spring conveys but a faint idea of the stern reality of this Twelfth of April. Although the day is tolerably fine and the sun shines warmly, yet the roads are still filled with snow,-the ...
Daily British Whig (Kingston, ON), 20 April 1852 
TextNewspapers  Daily British Whig (Kingston, ON), 20 April 1852,   Spring Walk II It is mighty tedious entirely this writing of "Annual Walk." The originality of the thing could have afforded some counterbalance to its want of general interests but that was marred years ago by the ' Argus ', and is now wholly destroyed by the still viler plagiary of another...
Daily British Whig (Kingston, ON), 23 April 1852 
TextNewspapers  Daily British Whig (Kingston, ON), 23 April 1852,   Spring Walk III The "Opening of Navigation" makes but little progress, so does the "Annual Spring Walk of the British Whig." The season is dead against both. On St. George's Day, in ordinary years, the communication with Montreal and Quebec is usually perfect; the several steamboats are on ...
Daily British Whig (Kingston, ON), 28 April 1852 
TextNewspapers  Daily British Whig (Kingston, ON), 28 April 1852,   Spring Walk IV Here is the end of April, the weather cold, wet and unpleasant, and the "Walk" scarcely half begun. Nobody feels any inclination to walk about or look at anything--to crowd round a fireplace or hot stove is far more pleasant and infinitely more congenial. But disagreeable as is...
Daily British Whig (Kingston, ON), 11 May 1852 
TextNewspapers  Daily British Whig (Kingston, ON), 11 May 1852,   Spring Walk VII The "Walk" is really becoming interesting and agreeable--so many things to see and write about, and such charming weather to [do] it in. Last Saturday was a delightful day; it was the day on which the first steamers came up this season from Montreal , and it kept folds [sic]...
Daily British Whig (Kingston, ON), 21 May 1852 
TextNewspapers  Daily British Whig (Kingston, ON), 21 May 1852,   Spring Walk VIII Having disposed of all the Steamers, all the Hotels, all the Manufactories, and all the other matters, more immediately connected with the resumption of business in the Spring, it may not, be remiss, ere this "Annual Walk" is closed, to say a few works on the present state of...
Daily British Whig (Kingston, ON), 5 April 1853 
TextNewspapers  Daily British Whig (Kingston, ON), 5 April 1853,   Spring Walk I It has been too much the custom to underrate the commercial importance of good old Kingston. Let any one walk through the city at the present time, and he will see enough to convince him that Kingston is one of the busiest places in all Canada; and that if any other city, town,...
Daily British Whig (Kingston, ON), 5 [6] April 1853 
TextNewspapers  Daily British Whig (Kingston, ON), 5 [6] April 1853,   Spring Walk II It is so rarely that we have it in our power to say a good word in favor of the Corporation of Kingston that it would be both a sin and shame not to do it. The streets are remarkably clean, considering the season of the year. The scavengers have been well to work; have scraped...
Detroit Free Press (Detroit, MI), 1 Dec. 1868 
TextNewspapers  Detroit Free Press (Detroit, MI), 1 Dec. 1868,   NOTE: This is a translation of a portion of the Nouveau voyage d'un pais plus grand que l'Europe (Utrecht, 1698) a published description of the very early exploration of the Great Lakes region by French adventurers by the Belgian Recollet missionary father Louis Hennepin. It describes the...
Detroit Free Press (Detroit, MI), 1 Dec, 1870 
TextNewspapers  Detroit Free Press (Detroit, MI), 1 Dec, 1870,   Here is another example of the many important improvements to navigation that were first built in the 1860's and 70's and are still in use today.
Oswego Palladium (Oswego, NY), Feb. 3, 1877 
TextNewspapers  Oswego Palladium (Oswego, NY), Feb. 3, 1877,   What People Say ____ The Early History and Conditions of Oswego - Another Interesting Contribution to Our Early History Lockport , (N.Y.) , January 18, 1877 To the Editor of the Palladium : Sir: It was in 1808 or 1809 that my father, ( Jacob Townsend ) a member of the house of ...
Daily British Whig (Kingston, ON), 13 April 1853 
TextNewspapers  Daily British Whig (Kingston, ON), 13 April 1853,   Spring Walk V What a change in the weather within a few days! The atmosphere is warm, the sun shines, the streets are clean and dry, and though we have no spring, yet we have spring's antecedent, charming dry days, like an English March. The opening of Navigation has caused a general stir in...
Daily British Whig (Kingston, ON), 16 April 1853 
TextNewspapers  Daily British Whig (Kingston, ON), 16 April 1853,   Spring Walk VI The weather has been so bad again that it was yesterday only that the British Whig was able to continue its peregrinations about town. The greatest want perceptible in Kingston, is the want of a good Hotel. The City has but one First Class Hotel, the "British American," and...
Daily British Whig (Kingston, ON), 17 April 1854 
TextNewspapers  Daily British Whig (Kingston, ON), 17 April 1854,   Spring Walk II MR. COUNTER'S SHIP YARD AND MARINE RAILWAY.-- Quebec owes a portion of its commercial greatness to the enterprise of its citizens in the way of Ship building. For half a century vessels of all sizes and classes have been built in that city, taken to England and there sold....
Daily British Whig (Kingston, ON), 24 April 1854 
TextNewspapers  Daily British Whig (Kingston, ON), 24 April 1854,   Spring Walk IV THE DOINGS AT HATTER'S BAY AND THEREABOUTS The village at Hatter's Bay, or Portsmouth, as some people absurdly name it, though not within the city limits, is nevertheless part and parcel of Kingston; consequently it comes under the category of the "Spring Walk." It is one of...
Daily British Whig (Kingston, ON), 27 April 1854 
TextNewspapers  Daily British Whig (Kingston, ON), 27 April 1854,   Spring Walk V THE WHARVES AND WHARFINGERS OF KINGSTON In running down from West to East, and slightly sketching the numerous Wharves of Kingston, it is not the present intention to say ought of the various Steamers which ply to them. By reason of the incompleteness of the arrangements, that...
Daily British Whig (Kingston, ON), 19 May 1854 
TextNewspapers  Daily British Whig (Kingston, ON), 19 May 1854,   Spring Walk VIII THE STEAMBOATS OF KINGSTON In former years and in former "Walks," the Steamboats of Kingston occupied a prominent position; whereas this year, they come in at the fag end of the "Walk," and form its concluding Number. This arises from an impossibility, owing to conflicting...
