p.3 The Canals of the St. Lawrence - All the short Canals on the river between Prescott and Cornwall, are now completed, for the Albion steamer, Capt. Johnston, came up yesterday from Montreal, deeply laden, and passed through the whole of them. The Lachine Canal is expected to be finished some day this week, and the Albion expects to be the first vessel to pass through it.

Sailing Match - The match which it was intended should take place on last Saturday, was unavoidably postponed. Several entries have now been made for Thursday next, the 14th inst., when we understand it will positively come off. The list lies at this office, and further entries may be made before Wednesday evening. On that evening a meeting of those interested will be held at Goodfellow's for the purpose of making necessary arrangements. [Chronicle & News]
