p.2 Another American Vessel Naturalized - The American propeller Dayton, built, we believe, last year, has been purchased by Messrs. Walker & Berry, for their own business, under British Registry. She is now loading here for Chicago, and will be under the command of Capt. R. Patterson, of this city, who is part owner. The Dayton is a very fine vessel of about 350 tons. If our American friends were as liberal as they usually profess themselves to be, we would be enabled to obtain U.S. registry for Canadian built vessels when desirable, in exchange for the privileges which their shipbuilders have in our ports, but this has been steadily refused. The only reason given for the refusal is the peculiarly feminine one - "because." (later renamed the Magnet ? - ed.)

Welland Canal - The low mitre lock No. 2 Welland Canal, has given way, occasioning a suspension of navigation. The St. Catherines Post thinks that the damage will be repaired and the canal ready for use today or Monday.
