p.2 Quick Sailing - The Barque Grampus, of this port, of 400 tons, left Stony Creek on Monday night last, heavily loaded with square timber, for the foot of Long Island, 20 miles below Kingston, a distance of 240 miles, and arrived there on the evening of the following day, at 7 o'clock, making the distance in less than 23 hours. She was unloaded there, when she left Long Island on Thursday Evening, and arrived in our Harbor, with all sails set, glorious sight, on Thursday noon, having accomplished her trip upwards in less than 18 hours. This we believe is one of the shortest trips ever performed on the lake. [Hamilton Gazette]

Chief Engineer Killaly to survey ground between Lake Huron and Lake Superior for canal. [Colonist]
