p.2 Royal Mail Through Line - Change Of Time - Commencing tomorrow, the 19th August, the steamers of this line will leave for Montreal at 5 o'clock in the morning instead of 5:30 as heretofore. Passengers will please remember that one of the company's steamers leave for Oswego and Charlotte every evening (Sunday excepted) at 5 o'clock.

Rideau Canal - We learn that the locks have been repaired at Kingston Mills, and that navigation will be resumed tomorrow. This speaks well for the manner in which the repairs have been made. We understand that providing double gates for the Rideau Canal would be attended with enormous expense, owing to the fact that no two of the locks are the same size.
