p.3 Royal Mail Line - The steamer Algerian went west last evening at 5:30, but the lake was so rough that she returned to port, leaving at 8:30 for Hamilton, whence she leaves on her first trip downwards today. Tomorrow the Spartan will go up the lake, commanded as she was last year by Captain Bailey, and having our old friend, Mr. G.W. Comer, as purser, an officer held in high estimation, having been in the company's employment for eleven years.

Welland Canal - The Superintendent telegraphs Mr. Samuel Woods: "The Welland Canal is now open for navigation from Port Maitland, by way of the feeder. The main line will be open on Monday, the 5th instant. The canal will be fed in the future from Lake Erie."
