A boat large enough to accommodate 20 passengers, has lately arrived at Montreal from Schenectady; having ascended the Mohawk, to the little canal at Rome, which connects it with Wood Creek; thence into Oneida Lake, Oswego River and Lake Ontario, &c.

When we consider that a cut of 15 or 16 miles from the Mohawk to the Hudson would have enabled this very boat to fetch a freight to Albany or New-York, we may estimate the immense importance of a canal from Lake Erie to the Hudson. Till that be made our produce and wealth must flow to Montreal and Quebec. - New York Columbian.
