p.2 Low Water In The Canal - The water in the Rideau Canal is so low at present as to much impede the usual navigation. The steamer City of Ottawa, on this account, will not arrive here till Friday next. She will return however at her usual time.

City Council - A communication was read from Lieut. J.K. Granville, R.A., stating that at the late inspection of the military, remarks were made of the existence of a nuisance in the shape of the old sunken barges in the water of the bay near the Tete du Pont barracks, also complaining that large rafts were in the frequent habit of anchoring off the barracks, preventing the proper flow of water necessary to carry off the impurities of the barracks. Referred to the committee on wharves and harbours to report.

p.3 The steamer Kingston arrived here about a quarter past seven on Saturday evening, with a large number of passengers. She was the first arrival from the West in time last week, and the only one which has run the rapids for some time past. [Montreal Herald]
