Meeting at Merrickville - about increase in tolls on Rideau Canal.

Cleveland - 75 sail vessels and 5 steamers, of an aggregate tonnage of 8,671,689 tons and employing 364 men, now belong to the port of Cleveland.

p.2 Dismissal - We believe it has been the intention of the Government, ever since the purchase of the Welland Canal stock, to abolish the office of the Company, in this place, which has been unnecessarily an expensive one, and is now entirely useless, and bring it immediately under the control of the Board of Works. This determination has been partly carried into effect, this week - W.B. Robinson, Esquire, having received notice, that his services as Superintendent of the canal, were no longer required. [St. Catharines Journal]

p.3 Lake Huron White Fish - for sale at Macpherson & Crane's Upper Wharf, formerly known as Cartwright's wharf.
