p.15 Welland Canal - We learn from the St. Catharine's Journal that the American schooner Erie, in ballast, from Cleveland, Ohio, passed that village on the 29th July. The vessel draws 6 feet water, and is the first from Lake Erie which has navigated the canal. The Erie arrived at Oswego on the 3d inst. probably with a design to test the economy of carrying goods from New York through the Welland. The Journal says, the Canal may now be considered navigable throughout.
We learn that a steam ferry boat accommodates passengers to and from Ogdensburgh and Prescott.
