p.2 The Rideau Canal - general description of construction, a full column from [London (Eng.) Sun].

The Steamer Rideau arrived here on Sunday last from By Town, with a full cargo and a great number of passengers, having performed the trip in three days. We are informed that no obstruction occurred, but having had a Durham-Boat in tow was delayed in passing through the locks. She left here for By Town on Monday last, and will continue her trips weekly, as will be seen by an advertisement in this days paper.

Welland Canal - By the official report of the Collector of Tolls at Port Dalhousie, it appears that from the first to the 20th of June last, sixty-four vessels passed through the Welland Canal.


The Fast Sailing Steamer


Captain Jacob Herchimer,

Will leave the head of the Bay of Quinte for Kingston and Prescott, every Monday and Thursday morning at 3 o'clock, and touching at the intermediate Ports, will arrive at Kingston at 4 o'clock in the afternoon of those days, and will arrive at Prescott in time to meet the Montreal Stage on Tuesday and Friday mornings.

Upwards, she will leave Prescott every Tuesday and Friday afternoon, immediately after the arrival of the Montreal Stage; will leave Kingston at 8 o'clock every Wednesday and Saturday morning, and will arrive at the Carrying Place in time to meet the York Stage.

By an arrangement with Mr. Weller (the proprietor of the line of stages between York and the Carrying Place,) the fare from Cobourg to Prescott, and vice versa, will be the same as is charged in the Lake Boats. Passengers leaving the Head of the Bay on Monday and Thursday mornings, will arrive at Montreal on Tuesday and Friday evenings.
