p.2 Rideau Canal Navigation - Prince Albert, Capt. Jones, is running.

Port Hope Harbour - The pecuniary prospect is brightening somewhat. In the new harbor there is an immense raft of different descriptions of timber, all of the best quality, got out by those enterprising men of business, Messrs. Edsall and Wilson; and in the old harbor there are several vessels taking in wheat, flour, peas, and so forth, while others are discharging cargoes of stuffs from Chicago, Kingston and other places. One vessel is of 500 tons burthen. The Sarah S. Marsh, commanded by Captain Janes, is a lake clipper, which might circumnavigate the globe. Her appearance is odd enough. Having three masts, she is yet neither a barque nor brig, as, assuredly, she is not a pollywog. The foremast is square-rigged, after the manner of a brig or ship, while the main and mizzen masts are schooner-rigged. Her appearance is very good, her capacity considerable, and she is that which it is very desirable every vessel should be - both wind and water-tight. With two or three more of such crafts Port Hope would obtain credit for enterprise. [Atlas]
