p.2 Provincial Parliament - House of Assembly - Nov. 26th - The report of the committee on the Welland Canal, was brought up this evening by Mr. Robinson and read. It recommends that the work be purchased by Government and carried on under its sole control.
p.3 The Weather - The Lake Navigation by Schooners yet continues, but all the Steamboats have discontinued their trips. The Canada went ashore in a gale of wind on Saturday last, inside the piers at Oswego, and we have not yet learned tidings of her safety. The Brockville and Sir James are now making their last trips up the Bay, not owing to the severity of the weather, but for want of freight. The Ottawa & Rideau Company have received their last goods, via the St. Lawrence, and all their steamboats and barges are laid up. There is no snow on the ground, and the weather is extraordinarily mild for the time of year.
