p.3 Spring Navigation - We have reason to believe that the communication between Lakes Erie and Ontario will be open, in the spring, for vessels of 26 feet beam, and measuring 138 feet from knight-head to taffrail, though vessels of ( ) feet 6 inches can pass. Hitherto, on account of the non-completion of the two lower locks, 120 or 125 feet has been the extreme length.

It is also the intention of the Government, we understand, to place powerful steam tugs on the St. Lawrence, between the different canals, so that the public may realize the advantage of their construction, in a very much reduced cost of transportation between Kingston and Montreal. [St. Catharines Journal]

The Lake and River Mail Steamers are laid up for the season. Our harbour is still open, and schooners are arriving with produce.
