p.3 Rideau Canal - land to be cleared at junction of Rideau and Ottawa River, bridge to be built at Chaudiere. [Brockville Recorder]

The Steam Boat Dalhousie, Capt. McDonell, arrived here on Sunday last, it being her first trip since the accident which occurred on the 14th of September. For the remainder of the season, the Dalhousie will make three trips in each week, between Prescott and Kingston.

The Toronto, (says the Brockville Recorder of the 23d instant) while on her way from Prescott on Thursday last, when about two miles below this place, had the misfortune to have the cross-tree of her machinery give way, which put a stop to her further progress. She was towed into this Port the following night, by the Niagara. As it has been necessary to send that part of her machinery which failed to Montreal for repairs, it will necessarily be some time before she can resume her usual trips.

ad for Dalhousie, A. McDonell, Master, giving timetable for remainder of season. Prescott, 28th Oct., 1826.

p.3 We regret to learn that the Steam Boat Niagara ran upon a shoal off Long Point, on the evening of Thursday last. Assistance was sent from this place on Sunday morning, and we hope she will be relieved from her unpleasant situation before any serious damage is sustained.

p.3 We regret exceedingly that it is not in our power to give a more favourable account of the Steam-Boat Niagara. On Friday last she was lying in about four and a half feet of water, off Poplar Point, 50 miles from this place, and there is but little probability of her being got off this season. We perceive by the York papers, that the passengers have expressed their entire approbation of Capt. Mosier's conduct. The passengers names are, Sam'l Clowes, Smith Griffin, George Rykert, Tho's Bell, David Sleeper, Ronald Chisholm, Thomas Moore, David Simpson, and John Leighton.
