p.3 The Rideau Canal - to be ready in about a month, despite rumours.

The Navigation is now open. The Steam Boat Queenston arrived from Prescott at 3 o'clock on Monday, and proceeded to York early yesterday morning. Several Schooners have also sailed from this Port since Monday.

Circular Inspector General's Office, York 22d March, 1833.

Sir, - A circular having been transmitted from the Treasury Department of the United States to the Collector of the Northern, North Eastern, and North Western Districts of the Republic, acquainting them that no Custom house charges of any kind are to be exacted upon any raft, flat, boat or vessel, entering the United States, otherwise than by Sea; I have to instruct you that in future, no Custom-house charges of any kind are to be levied in the Ports of Upper Canada, upon any raft, flat, boat or vessel from the United States.

You will readily infer that the fees now authorized by law are considered as relating to the cargo to be landed, and only receivable in such cases, as regards the charge to be made for a report, that is clearly optional, since the reports may be furnished by the masters, with which circumstances they should in all cases be made acquainted. I have the honor to be, Your very obed't serv't,

George H. Markland, Inspector General
