p.2 Wolfe Island Canal - The Annual Election of Directors of this Company, was held at their Office yesterday, and resulted in the nomination of John Counter, Esq., Kingston; E.G. Merrick, Esq., Clayton; Hon. J.A. Macdonald, M.P.P., Kingston; O.P. Starkey, Esq., Cape Vincent; Wm. Ford, Jr., Esq., Kingston; H. Holcomb, Esq., Watertown; and D. Shaw, Esq., Kingston. John Counter, Esq., was re-elected President, by an unanimous vote, as were also the Secretary and Treasurer; and a call of ten per cent was ordered to be made, as will be seen from our advertising columns. We understand the Contractor is pushing the work on vigorously, having nearly one hundred and fifty men at work, and that so thoroughly has the description of excavation been anticipated, no difficulty will arise in completing the Canal by the 1st October, the period contracted for. We are requested to state that the Stock book remains at the Secretary's office, for further subscription.
