The Rideau Canal - The Ottawa Citizen of yesterday says: The steamer Louisa arrived here from Newboro today, and will clear again for Jones Falls tomorrow. She will not be able to make a through trip to Kingston for two months, on account of the break in the lock at Kingston Mills. The vessel will continue to run between the lower Rideau ports so as to keep the crew employed. It is quite a loss to the line, and will be a great inconvenience to the people of the Rideau that the steamer cannot continue her through trips.
