Kingston 11th Sept., 1832 David J. Smith, Treasurer

We are informed that the keel of a new Steamer is laid at Missisagua Point, to navigate the Rideau Canal. Its length is 109 feet and about 20 feet beam; and we have heard it is to be called The Kingston. We understand that Mr. Parker is also building a new Boat for the engine of the Toronto.

The John By Steamer made her first trip to Prescott on Thursday last, and returned on Saturday. She is very neatly fitted up, and it is said her speed equals that of any Steam-Boat on the Lake or River.
