p.3 Marine Notes - A letter received at Chicago Friday from Port Colborne, dated March 27th, says: "The Welland Canal will be open on May 1st, but not before. The ice is very strong here yet and we will have to see very warm weather if anything gets to Buffalo on April 29th, or here on the same date."

A despatch to the Chicago Tribune from Ottawa says: The petition of Ross & Co., of Quebec, and 119 others, brought down in a return to the Commons, prays the adoption of such measures as will effectually prevent all American vessels from being admitted to registry in Canada or of being navigated on any of its waters until such time as Canadian vessels are accorded the same privileges as have been hitherto extended to vessels built in the United States.
