(copied from the Whig by The Globe, Dec. 16, 1846)

p.2 More Last Words - The breach in the Welland Canal having been repaired, a fleet of a dozen vessels laden with flour from Lake Erie made their somewhat unexpected appearance in Kingston harbour on Tuesday and Wednesday. The arrival of so large a quantity of flour, and the extreme mildness of the weather, induced Messrs. McPherson & Crane and Messrs. H. & S. Jones to load several barges, and despatch them down the river, to make what way they can towards Montreal, thereby lessening the expense of land carriage, of a large portion of flour, yet in Western Canada, will be wanted in Montreal and Quebec during the winter, for the consumption of large cities. [Whig 11th Dec.]
