p.2 The Murray Canal - history, military considerations. [Hastings Chronicle]

The Carrying Place Canal - editorial on benefits.

-The propeller Ontario, of the Northern Transportation Line, sank at Ogdensburgh on Wednesday. The vessel was moored to the wharf, but chafed so much that a hole was made in her side, and she sank in thirty minutes. Her cargo of flour and pork is expected to be recovered in a more or less damaged condition, as the vessel is in a position to be raised.

-Far advanced as the season is, navigation has not yet entirely ceased. A brigantine made its way down the river yesterday under full sail in the light breeze. The steamer Pierrepont continues to run every day to and from Cape Vincent. The steamer Bay of Quinte, too, has not yet given up the navigation of the waters whose name she bears.

p.3 Imports - 12.
