p.3 Closing of the Lachine Canal - It must be borne in mind by the Mercantile Community, that the Lachine Canal will close on the 1st August and remain shut until September 15th, both days inclusive, as officially advertised some months ago.

Steamer Admiral - This fine vessel, in consequence of the abundance of steam power on Lake Ontario, arrived at Kingston last Saturday, and has left, or will leave presently, for Lake St. Francis, there to be employed in the towing of rafts. The Admiral had the misfortune to lose a large raft, by stress of weather, in endeavoring to tow it from Presqu'ile downwards. The steamer Traveller, bought last year from the Dock Yard, is fitted for towing, as is also the old Cobourg.

Burlington Bay Canal - nearing completion....."The large, capacious, and beautiful harbor of Burlington Bay may then be approached at any time during the season of navigation, without any risk of those scenes of shipwreck and disaster, which so frequently occurred during severe eastern storms in the vicinity of the old canal." [Toronto Star]
