p.3 On Monday last, arrived at La Chine, the new steam boat, (which is intended to ply between that place and the Ottawa River) to take in her engine. [Canadian Courant]

A Steam Boat has lately been built in the Lower Province, for the purpose of plying between Lachine and the Ottawa River. Such a mode of conveyance will obdurate the inconvenience which travellers usually experience at that place and render their journey to the Upper Province more agreeable. A Boat of 80 feet keel 28 feet beam and to carry an engine of 20 horse power is now building at Prescott to ply upon Lake St. Francis.
