p.2 Correspondence - Toronto, Dec. 10th -


.....I cannot draw these hasty remarks to a close, without noticing, also, the labours of the Niagara Dock Company. It is most gratifying to see the toil and industry displayed by this enterprising association, who have furnished, amongst other specimens of their skill and capacity, those splendid steamers, the City of Toronto, the Princess Royal, and the Niagara, during the present year - and who have now on the stocks five new steamers, and eleven schooners with Ericson's propellers, building for the ensuing season. Great credit is due Mr. Cayley, by whose talent and industry the property of this Company has been raised to an immense value. And it is well worthy of being made widely known, that such has been the degree of enterprize in Western Canada, during this year, that the Welland Canal Company are still requiring between three and four hundred labourers more, to carry on their operations during the winter months, notwithstanding the emigration by the Quebec route alone has amounted to 28,500 persons.
