Full Text

p.1 List of Acts Passed by the Late Session of Parliament - #36 - An Act to provide for the permanent completion of the Welland Canal, and for other purposes therein mentioned.

#42 - An act to compel Vessels to carry a light during the night, and to make sundry provisions to regulate the Navigation of the waters of this Province.

#50 - An act to enable the Canada Company to erect a Harbor at Goderich on Lake Huron.

p.3 Oswego Harbor - The old and unfeeling enemy which has held our harbor in 'durance vile' for the past three months, took leave of us today amidst the congratulations of our elder, and the huzzas of our younger population. The wharfs, bridge and banks of the harbor and river were occupied with spectators, witnessing the joyful scene. We shall now, soon expect to see the thousand lake craft sailing in and out of our village, followed with the din of business and concomitants of a lively and flourishing commercial town. So more it be.

[Oswego Advertiser, March 17th]
