p.126 Welland Canal - £50,000 granted to finish the work.
p.127 On Thursday morning, Commodore Barrie, C.B. arrived in port from Kingston, in his Yacht, and proceeded the same day to Quebec, where he arrived on Friday evening. The Mercury gives the following account of the Yacht. She is a beautiful Schooner rigged vessel, with lateen sails, about forty feet long and eleven feet beam, and drawing fully three feet water; she has a neat cabin, and is altogether a beautiful and commodious vessel of her class, sails well, and can row sixteen oars when necessary. The passage of such a vessel over the rapids between Kingston and Montreal is a novel experience. She however came down perfectly safe, to the great astonishment of those who witnessed her descent.
