p.2 Opening of the Welland Canal - The Superintendent of the Welland Canal gave notice that the works of that Canal would all be ready, and the level filled to allow vessels to pass from lake to lake by the Port Maitland route, on Monday the 1st day of April, (yesterday,) and within a few days after the short and direct route by Port Colborne will also be fully opened for navigation. [Colonist]

The Weather - ...Navigation is now open in this vicinity, and the early steamboats are in motion on the Lake, River and Bay. The Rideau Canal is still shut, and will probably remain so for a week or two.
