Full Text

The PUMPER, steamboat, owned by Mr. Drummond, and freighted with 200 barrels of flour, 60 of pork, and a number of passengers, left here on Thursday morning for Bytown. This is the first commercial cargo which has navigated the Canal since it's completion. We understand she will be a regular trader upon this useful line of communication until succeeded by a more efficient and commodious craft.

RIDEAU CANAL. -- Mr. Drummond's steam-boats, the RIDEAU and the MARGARET, are fitted up, to be in readiness on the opening of the Canal. Their enterprising proprietor will, we hope, reap an abundant reward for his exertions. ---- Kingston Chronicle
