Canada (Steamboat), aground, 1 Apr 1845
Full Text

The steamer CANADA on her first upward trip, last week, we regret to state, grounded opposite Alexandria Bay, and for several days resisted all attempts to draw her off. She has been at length relieved and is now again in port, having sustained, we believe, comparatively trifiling damage.

We learn from the Kingston Chronicle of April 5th, that the stm. CANADA struck a rock, in Alexandria Bay, 36 miles below Kingston, on the night of the 1st. inst. As she lies very easy, it is hoped that she may be got off without much damage, the water being quite shallow.

The steamboat CANADA, as we learn from the Kingston Chronicle of the 11th. inst., has been gotten off, and has arrived at Kingston. She is to resume her trips on the St. Lawrence, forthwith, having escaped material damage.
