Full Text

p.3 Commodore Barrie, on his return to Kingston, took his Yacht up the various rapids of the St. Lawrence, notwithstanding the Pilots at Montreal declared it to be impracticable, as the vessel draws 30 inches water. This boat is about 40 tons burthen, is a keel boat, holds the wind well, is a good sea-boat and furnishes a model which may be advantageously adopted for vessels destined hereafter to navigate between Quebec and Lake Ontario - and, through the Welland Canal, with the upper inland seas of this Continent. [Quebec Mercury]
