p.2 Another American Steamer - Yesterday afternoon about two o'clock a foreign steamship was signaled, which proved to be the screw propelled steamer Jefferson, Capt. Howard, which, in company with another of her class, lately passed down the Canada lakes and the St. Lawrence to Quebec, which she left five days ago for New York. She put in here for coal, and will leave immediately for her destination.

This is the 1st ship built upon the Canada lakes, which visited our harbour so far as we are aware, and is conclusive evidence of the triumph of art and science over the obstacles of nature. The inland seas of Canada are now connected with the Atlantic, and consequently with every sea and country in the world. [Halifax Courier Thursday]
