p.3 The Steamboat Frontenac made her last trip across the lake for the season on the 8th instant. We are informed that she has been laid up earlier than usual this season for the purpose of undergoing some repairs. In order to heave her down, it will be necessary to take out some parts of the machinery - and it was considered advisable to perform this indispensable work at present than in the spring. The Steamboat was launched in the year 1816, and has continued to ply on the Lake since that period, without having her bottom examined, a circumstance which is rather unusual of fresh water, and which proves the superior style in which she was constructed.
