p.2 A new Steamboat has been commenced at this place by the Hon. John Hamilton which it is expected will overcome every obstacle between this and the foot of the Long Sault - she is to be 190 feet long, having ? feet beam, and to be propelled by two ? powerful low pressure engines. She is to be built under the immediate superintendence of Mr. L. Hilliard, formerly Captain of the steamer William IV and is intended to ply between this place and Coteau du Lac, but will not be ready before the spring of 1840. [Prescott Sentinel]
