p.2 Wolfe Island Canal - It will be seen by the advertisement, that tenders will be received for constructing this important work. The stockholders of the Wolfe Island Canal and Railway Company held their meeting on Saturday, when the following gentlemen were elected the new Board of Directors:- John Counter, Francis M. Hill, Wm. Ford Jr., Alexander Campbell, John Carruthers, O.S. Gildersleeve, and David Shaw. Mr. Counter was re-elected President of the Board, and Mr. Ford, Treasurer.

Messrs. Counter, Hill and Ford, who went recently to Watertown as a deputation from the Board of Directors, made their report to the stockholders, by which it appears that the Directors of the Rome and Watertown continue firmly pledged to their former agreement to bear one half of the cost of constructing the Canal. This work is of the very highest importance to Kingston as completing the nearest route from the sea-board to Upper Canada, and the inhabitants of this city are bound to exert themselves by all means in their power to promote its success.
