p.157 - We learn from an Ohio paper, that at a meeting of the friends of seamen at Cleveland, in that state, on the 10th ult. a society was formed with the name of "The Western Seamen's Friend Society." The object of the society is to co-operate with the American Seamen's Friend Society, as an auxiliary, in carrying into effect measures for improving the social and moral condition of those employed on the Erie and Upper Lakes, and the Ohio Canal. Among other means for accomplishing their objects, the society intend to employ one or more chaplains, who shall also act as agent of the society under the direction of the Executive Board. [N.Y. Observer]

p.159 - At a meeting held in this town on Saturday last, it was resolved to form a steam boat company, designing to prepare for the Rideau Canal navigation. We understand the subscriptions already exceed £4000.
