p.3 We are informed that a Steam-Boat to be called the Iroquois is now in frame at Gananoque, 18 feet beam, 120 feet keel, with light draft of water, and differing in construction from any Boats now on our waters. She is to be propelled by an Engine of 50 Horse Power, and intended to run as a passage Boat between the head of the Long Sault and Prescott, to be in readiness as soon as the 1 st June next. For this, as well as for many other improvements, the Public will be indebted to the enterprising Stage and Steam-Boat Proprietors, Messrs. H. Dickinson and Co. - May these exertions be rewarded by the patronage of the travelling community.
Died - at Leeds, Allan McLain, formerly a hand on steam-boat Dalhousie.
