p.2 editorial on Rideau Canal.

Navigation - Navigation on Lake Ontario and River St. Lawrence this year has been unusually prolonged, steam craft and a few vessels, which at the corresponding date, December 8th, of last year were compelled by the severity of the weather to take up winter quarters, being now engaged in carrying cargoes between rather distant ports. The steam barge Nile arrived today from Trenton with 200,000 feet of lumber, and the schooner C.C. Griswell passed down the river yesterday, laden with grain, consigned from Toledo to Ogdensburgh. The crossing on the ferry between Kingston, Wolfe Island and Cape Vincent, is expected to remain open for about two weeks yet.

City Items - The balance of the cargo of wheat of the schooner Annandale, was elevated today into cars for despatch to Montreal. The steam barge Nile arrived this morning from Trenton laden with lumber, and the schooner Industry from Oswego, light. The schooner Caroline has been hauled out on the ways at the marine railway to be rebuilt during the coming winter.
