Kingston Chronicle (Kingston, ON), Sept. 29, 1826
- Full Text
p.2 The steam boat Frontenac returned yesterday from Niagara, having, notwithstanding the heavy north easterly gale on Saturday last, succeeded in landing the Chief Justice and Solicitor General at Cobourg; and having brought down Admiral Lake, and the party which accompanied that officer, on his visit to the Falls. We understand that the Frontenac will now be laid up for the season.
p.3 Our Steam Boats have of late been truly unfortunate. In addition to the catalogue of disasters already noticed, we have to state that the Toronto ran aground last night, in coming up from Prescott, but was got off without sustaining any material damage. The Steam Boat Queenston also ran upon a shoal near Reed's Bay, at the upper end of Wolfe Island some time in the course of last night, and Capt. Whiting has been obliged to come in and obtain the aid of the Frontenac, and of some boats to lighten his vessel and get her afloat. The wind has been rather heavy during the morning, and the Queenston is said to lie in an exposed situation. - nevertheless, we trust she will not receive any serious injury.
