p.2 Welland Canal - The Navigation of the Welland Canal fairly opened last week, and we hope soon to see this "silent highway" fully occupied in the conveyance of produce from one Lake to another. The Welland, Capt. Smith, sailed from this port last week for Port Stanley and the Brunswick, Captain Fortier, for Bear Creek. On Easter Monday our enterprising shipbuilder Mr. Shickluna, proposed to launch a fine schooner he has just completed, but to the disappointment of the public some obstruction prevented her gracefully gliding into her natural element, and the launch did not take place at the hour appointed.
