p.3 A Fire broke out last Sunday, during divine service in the afternoon, on board of the Thomas McKay lying at Drummond's Wharf, which was happily extinguished without doing much injury. The most probable conjecture, in the absence of certainty, is, that the wood which had been taken out of the Furnace on her arrival, had not been sufficiently damped, - that it had ignited again, and so communicated with the side, the beams and the deck surrounding the Boiler. She was ready for moving again on Monday evening.



21st - Thomas McKay with passengers, having Barge Jane in tow, loaded with merchandise (list of consignees).

24th - The Steam Boat Rideau, with seventy-five emigrants, having Barges Francis and Emigrant in tow, with three hundred Emigrants, and Barges Kingston and Bytown, with full cargoes of merchandise. (list of consignees)

The Rideau left Barge Hope at First Rapids, to take in staves for Montreal.
