p.2 The Chatts Canal - The Ottawa Citizen of Saturday says that "The contractors on this work are unable to carry it through, and have succeeded to get the Government to take it off their hands. It is said the work is to be valued by competent parties, and the contractors allowed just what it is worth. They have discharged their hands, and abandoned the work."

The Season & The Weather - It has been so mild of late that navigation hence to Montreal is still open, tho' nothing but freight steamers are running. The Magnet makes one more trip up, and then she will be laid up. The Bay boat is still running, as is the Cape Vincent ferry boat, the Sir Charles Napier....

Imports - Nov. 27th - Brig Sir C. Napier, Chicago, 13,224 bush. corn, 500 bbls. flour, 5 bbls. pork, Walker & Berry.
