p.2 We have seen a small barge built on the diagonal plan, by calculation 110 tons burthen, for the purpose of navigating the waters of the St. Lawrence and Rideau Canal, to any part of the upper lakes, as far as St. Joseph or Chicago (Lake Michigan) where a canal will connect the waters of the St. Lawrence with those of the Mississippi, at a distance from this city of nearly 1200 miles. She appears to give general satisfaction, and does great credit, to those who intend to essay this simple method of establishing a direct trade, to any part of the upper lakes, with Montreal and Quebec. She drew only nine inches when launched. [Mercury]
