p.3 Melancholy Accident - while a Durham boat was proceeding from Kingston to Montreal, a Navy blacksmith fell overboard and drowned - his waistcoat was filled with dollars. [Montreal Herald, Aug. 14th]

On Thursday night the New Steam Boat 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 20 horse power, propels her at the rate of about 7 miles an hour. The accommodation for passengers, considering the small dimensions of the vessel, are very well arranged. As two steam boats now ply between Prescott and Kingston, every facility is afforded for travelling.

Lieutenant Governor of Lower Canada leaves in steam-boat Frontenac for Niagara.
