p.2 The naval establishment on the lakes in Canada has been considerably reduced. Captain Sandom and some other officers are expected in England by the next Halifax packet. The present reduced establishment is under the orders of Commander W.H. Fowell, nominally in command of the Montreal schooner, of one gun, stationed on Lake Erie, the steamer Experiment James M. Boxer, Lieut. Commander, stationed on Lake Huron, and the Mohawk steamer, J.W. Bedford, stationed on Lake Ontario. [Colonial Gazette]

Burlington Bay Canal - The rail-road from the mountain to the beach is now completed, and the hauling of the stone has commenced. A great quantity of timber has been delivered, and every arrangement made to proceed in the work with vigor. The new Canal is to be made on the site of the old one. The South pier will form the breast work for the protection of the new work which is to be laid down. The north wall is to be removed, and the Canal widened to about 160 feet. [Hamilton Journal]
