The primary survey of the Lakefield-Peterborough section of the Trent Valley canal has been completed. The route, with a few unimportant deviations, follows the route of the last survey. The primary survey plans are now being prepared, and as soon as these are completed the location survey will be made.

The work of raising the str. Rideau Belle from the Tay canal was solely under the supervision of Capt. Donnelly, sr. On Friday evening at 7:30 the boat was raised and at 10:30 o'clock she was bailed out. She came up the Rideau under her own steam.
