      Navigation of The St. Lawrence.
The Board of Trade granted the EUREKA privilege to sail the St. Lawrence. But under the Bill repealing the British Navigation Act., ships can ascend or descend the waters of this river after, 1st January, 1850, without difficulty.
This will open a new field to ship building as well as to our shipping interests. Vessels may be constructed on our shores, loaded with our agriculture, and sail for any part of the world. New markets will thus be opened for our industry, and a new spirit of enterprise waked up on our lake shores.
