p.2 Welland Canal - The water was let into this work on Saturday last, and as the ice is quite out at Gravelly Bay, the canal is this week open for navigation throughout its entire length. Up to Sunday morning, five or six schooners had arrived at Port Dalhousie on their way to the upper lakes. Last Monday, the Highlander, a fine schooner, was launched at St. Catharines by Mr. Shickaluna, and a light ship, intended by Government for the station at Long Point, on Saturday, at Port Dalhousie, by Mr. Abbey. We observe that the New York Commercial Advertiser has heard of a breach in the Welland Canal, but nothing of the sort is known to have happened on the line of the canal itself. [Niagara Chronicle]

p.2 Mr. Bethune's new steamer the Admiral, arrived here on Friday from Niagara. The Admiral is a very fine vessel, and is handsomely fitted up; she will prove a valuable addition to the "floating palaces" which - thanks to the enterprize of such men as Mr. Bethune and Capt. Richardson - ornament our waters, and render the travelling on Lake Ontario, in point of comfort, speed, and safety, equal to almost any in the world. The route of the Admiral will, for the present, be between this port and Hamilton, and she is under the management of Capt. Gordon, well and favorably known to the community. [Toronto Herald]
