p.2 Board of Trade - (part) Welland Canal - The deputation of your Board together with a delegation from the St. Catharines Board, waited on the Hon. Premier and pressed upon him the great utility of deepening at once to 14 feet navigation, the new Welland Canal now under construction, and are happy to say the Government have concluded to carry out this recommendation, which no doubt will largely increase the transhipment of grain at this port, and will necessitate the erection of a large elevator and warehouse for storage. We are pleased to note that in anticipation of this trade a large graving dock is being constructed here, which is considered a national enterprise deserving national recognition and which will accommodate any class of vessels needing repairs at this port the foot of lake navigation.

The Ice - The Pierrepont is now to be laid up for the season.
