Chronicle & Gazette (Kingston, ON), Aug 23, 1845

(original at Queens University Special Collections)

p.2 The Whig of Tuesday threw out an "insidious hint" that the steamer Highlander was not "seaworthy" by stating that her trips between Kingston and Toronto would be continued "while the fine weather lasts" - but the mercenary creature became alarmed less his "hint" should be the means of his losing a six line advertisement, and in yesterday's paper he endeavours to atone for his "faux pas" by rating the Chronicle for what, by his misinterpretation he has construed into a similar offence. We gave no "insidious hint" whatever - we stated a simple fact which every candid man will admit.

The opposition steamer Highlander is advertised to leave Kingston for Toronto this evening at 5 o'clock, and the Prince Albert will go up on Wednesday to oppose the Queen and the Eclipse on the Hamilton and Toronto route.
