p.2 The Canada - On Thursday last, a new steamer was launched at Chippewa. She was built by the Niagara Harbor & Dock Company, and is intended to run on Lake Erie. She is called The Canada, and the Chronicle says - "An idea of her can be obtained from a consideration of the following dimensions:- length on deck 204 feet, breadth of beam 29 feet, breadth over all 55 feet 3 inches, depth of hold 12 feet 4 inches; she will be propelled by one low pressure engine of 140 horse power, cylinder 60 inches, 10 feet stroke, wheel 30 feet diameter, with 10 feet bucket. The Canada is very strongly put together, yet she draws very little more water than the London, and sits as gracefully on the water as any of the many beautiful vessels constructed by the same company. [St. Catharines Journal]
