The steam boat St. George, Lt. Harper, R.N. Commander, having been completely refitted since her accident, is pursuing her regular trips. She leaves Kingston, as advertised.

Welland Canal - We regret to state that there have been several perplexing interruptions to the navigation through this Canal of late, and that the water is now drawn off, to complete repairs. But by Wednesday or Thursday next, the 11th, we are authorised to state, the Canal will be re-opened, and, it is confidently believed, will not again be closed the present season. Materials for improving the work are being plentifully provided - the Oswego Forwarders have promised their cordial co-operation and support; and new life and animation are again infused throughout the whole.
