p.2 Important Notice - Good Cheer For Our Sailors - It must be gratifying to all who feel interested in the spiritual welfare of our seamen to know that Mr. Bone, the devoted missionary amongst them on the line of the Welland Canal, is engaged during the winter months in visiting our lake ports, presenting the claims of that good work. Hitherto he has met with encouraging success wherever he has been, and as he is now in Kingston for a few days, we hope that his hands will be strengthened by the wanted liberality of our fellow citizens. He has been invited to preach in the Congregational Church on Sabbath morning at the usual hour, when he will give some interesting sketches of his labours in that noble mission. He will also preach in the evening at 7 o'clock in the School Room, Garden Island.

-Considerable stir is being made in St. Catherines by owners of vessels to have all ready for the opening of navigation. The steamer City of Toronto, which is lying in her usual winter berth at Niagara, is now being overhauled, painted and put in her usual order. It is expected that she will commence her trips as early as the 10th of April, which will be a great accommodation to those living on the south side of the lake who have business at the capital of Ontario.

St. Catherines, March 26th - The dam built at Ramey's Bend, on the Welland Canal, gave way on Tuesday last, a calamity which will for one year at least defer the much desired Lake Erie level for the Welland Canal.
