p.2 Navigation - The steamer Princess Royal is advertised to leave Toronto today for this city, but as the ice has not yet shifted, it is not probable that she will be able to reach the harbor.

The Harbor - The ice in the channel has given way, and a large sheet of water extending from Garden Island to Cedar Island, presented itself this morning. It requires but a strong northerly or east wind to clear the harbor and offing.

p.3

NOTICE.

THE ROYAL MAIL STEAMER

PRINCESS ROYAL,

Is expected at Kingston on Thursday, the 30th inst., and will leave for Toronto on the following (Friday) morning, as per Telegraph advices from her owners.

JOHN H. GREER & Co., Agents.

Kingston, March 27th, 1848.

WELLAND CANAL.

NOTICE.

Notice is hereby given that the Welland Canal will be re-opened to the Trade upon the Tenth day of April next. The new Harbor at Port Dalhousie will then be brought into use. The Old Harbor and Old Entrance Lock being no longer required, Masters of Vessels are cautioned against attempting an entrance to the Canal in that direction.

The temporary light heretofore exhibited at the end of the Old Pier will be removed, and placed for the present, upon the

LONGEST OR WEST PIER

of the New Harbor. Vessels making the Harbor will keep alongside this Pier, not deviating from it more than thirty yards, until they reach the position of the Old Wasted Weir. As all the Dredging of the New Harbor will not be then completed, the proper channel will be buoyed out until the whole is done, marking an easy entrance to the new Lock, with not less than 10 feet of water in any part of it.

The Canal has been deepened throughout to afford Nine feet draught of Water.

SAMUEL KEEFER, Engr. W. Canal.

Welland Canal Office,

St. Catharines, March 24th, 1848.
