p.2 Brantford - Our Canal and River are now assuming a business-like appearance. The Schooners Tuscarora, Onandaga, and Mohawk belonging to Messrs. Wilkes, are being freighted with flour from their storehouse, destined for St. Catharines..... In a few days a Steamboat will be placed on the river, to ply between Brantford and Dunnville, which is to be commenced by Capt. Soules, and is to run in connection with another boat from Dunnville to Buffalo. Timely notice will be given to the public when she commences her trips. [Courier]

The Bay of Quinte - The Hamilton Spectator says there is no foundation for the statement that the Eclipse steamer is to be transferred from her present route to the Bay.

p.3 Lake Erie - ...About 11 o'clock this morning the steamer Sultana was observed in the offing making demonstrations on the ice which proved ineffectual, for she was afterward seen making her way to Point Abino, where it is thought she has landed her passengers.... [Buffalo Commercial Advertiser]
