p.2 The Lock and Dam at St. AnneÌs rapids, is now about commencing. This work is, we learn, to be carried on under the direction of an Officer of the Royal Engineers - the expense is to be defrayed by the Province. As this arrangement has been made for the purpose of giving employment to emigrants on their arrival in the Province, Stone Cutters, builders, and labourers will do well to head their course up the Ottawa River, when from these works they will meet with every encouragement. [ Bytown Gazette ]

p.3 The repairs of the Grenville Canal having been completed, the Ottawa & Rideau Steamers resumed their trips last week, and continue to arrive with numerous barges in tow. The flour and other produce on hand here is sent down with all haste.
