The prop. Glengarry and tow arrived this morning from Duluth with grain.
The steamer Kathleen, on her trial trip, with 140 lbs. of steam, made 14 miles an hour. She is allowed to carry 160 lbs. of steam.
The proprietors of the steamer Kathleen have filed a complaint with the government for alleged neglect of the lockmen at Hartwell's locks in delaying the boat for twenty-six hours in passing down to Ottawa on its first trip last Saturday.
The steamboat John Haggart arrived at Ottawa on Tuesday from Kingston. Capt. Moffatt reports the water as very low at Brewer's Mills and all along the route from Kingston to Ottawa. He is in hopes that the boards of trade at Kingston and Ottawa will petition parliament next session to deepen the canal and locks. The canal was finished for traffic on the 29th of May, 1832, fifty-six years ago, and very little has been done in keeping up this important route to Ottawa.
