p.2 Sault Ste. Marie Canal - It appears from American papers, that our Government is likely to be anticipated in its slow movement towards making this important work, by the action of the general government of the United States. The Legislature of the State of New York has unanimously adopted certain resolutions to Congress, in favor of their undertaking it - which no doubt will be promptly done. How long are we to tolerate, we again ask, the shameful apathy of our Executive in the discharge of its important duties. [Statesman]
The Navigation - Our harbor may be said to be open, but at the time we write there are large masses of ice floating about. On Saturday the island ferry boat (sail) came across to within a couple of hundred yards of the city, and landed on the shore ice several passengers. The steamer New Era cut her way out from the commercial wharf, and, as will be seen by advertisement, will leave this afternoon for Toronto. The weather has been delightful for some days past, but, with very little wind stirring, the clearing of the harbor has been slower than was anticipated. The steamer Prince Albert, from Prescott, arrived here on Saturday evening.
Will leave KINGSTON for PRESCOTT, on Tuesday morning, 20th inst., at 9 o'clock (ice permitting) making daily trips until further notice.
Kingston, 17th April, 1852. Commercial Wharf.
