-future of Burlington canal discussed.

-Owen Sound busy, six vessels left last week, including Rescue.

-The schooner Neptune, Capt. Gaskin, of this city, and the schooner George Laidlaw, which loaded in Toronto, have arrived at Halifax in safety. The Neptune sailed from Quebec on the 10th, and arrived at her destination on Friday last, the 18th, making a good passage. The George Laidlaw left Quebec a few days before the Neptune, and reached Halifax on Wednesday. Both vessels made good time, and we hope will be equally fortunate on their return trip.
