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.

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.

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.

TextNewspapers  Daily British Whig (Kingston, ON), 12 April 1855,   Spring Walk III THE WHARVES OF KINGSTON There seems to have been a sudden determination this Spring on the part of the Kingston Wharfingers to increase their wharf accommodations, by running out into the harbor at inconceivable lengths. It is more than doubtful, even aided by a City By-Law,...
Daily British Whig (Kingston, ON), 3 May 1855 
TextNewspapers  Daily British Whig (Kingston, ON), 3 May 1855,   Spring Walk V Number Five of this our Spring Walk is about as lingering as the Spring itself.

Daily British Whig (Kingston, ON), 14 April 1856 
TextNewspapers  Daily British Whig (Kingston, ON), 14 April 1856,   Spring Walk I The season has been so unprecedentedly retarded by frost and snow, as to render the Opening of Navigation for 1856 a matter of great uncertainty.
