p.3 The Rideau Canal - description of Drummond's steam boat used on canal [from Chronicle with this additional comment]

...We yesterday visited the works above alluded to, and were at once surprised and gratified to observe the alterations and improvements, which have taken place in the vicinity of the Kingston Mills, within the last year. Mr. Drummond expects to complete his contract before the expiration of 18 months, and we sincerely hope his expectations may be realized. We are glad to learn that little or no sickness exists among the workmen, and we believe that but one accident has occurred during the progress of the work at the Mills.
