p.2 Board of Trade - work of past year - proposed dry dock, reduction of canal tolls, removal of shoals.

p.8 Plenty of Steamers - There will be lively times on the Rideau canal next summer if all the passenger and freight boats expected to ply on that route enters the field. The following is a list of them: str. Nellie Ross, Montreal to Kingston, Capt. W. Garratt, weekly; str. Ida, Capt. Earle, Montreal to Kingston, weekly; new iron boat, building by W. Bajus, Montreal to Kingston, weekly; str. Olive, Capt. Fargie, Westport to Montreal, weekly; str. Gatineau, G. Harris, rebuilding at Ottawa, for freight and passengers, Westport to Montreal, weekly; str. Welshman, Hall Bros., Westport to Montreal, weekly; str. Rideau Belle, D. Noonan, owner, Kingston to Smith's Falls, three times a week; new steamer building in Perth by Seeley & Moffatt, will likely run from Kingston to Perth three times a week alternately with the str. Rideau Belle. With a fair prospect of a railroad line from Kingston to the capital the facilities for reaching the fishing ground on the big Rideau lake will be ample, and no doubt, will draw a large number of travellers in that locality. George Harris, forwarder, of Ottawa, is in the city arranging for a new engine of larger power for his freight steamer, with a view to increasing her speed.
