Sault St. Marie Canal - meeting needed to push for construction. [Detroit Advertiser]

Mr. Walter Elliot, of this town, has during the last season been making an experiment which has answered his expectations, and the success of which he will probably lead the way to fresh exertions of Provincial enterprise. He despatched a schooner to Lake Huron on a fishing expedition. She has returned with a cargo 230 barrels of herrings (as many as she could stow), of a quality far superior to any that have ever been caught on Lake Ontario, and which have met with a very ready sale. [Niagara Chronicle]
