p.2 Lake Huron - We believe that the quality, as well as the quantity of the Fish of this Lake is very little understood or appreciated. We had on our breakfast table this morning some of the Lake Huron pickled Herring, from the store of Mr. I. Simpson, (the late residence of John Macpherson, Esq.). We gave them a few hours of soaking, and, though we have often admired the Loch Fine Herring, we do allow the Lake Huron beats them; they are moreover nearly twice as large. (also copied by Montreal Gazette of May 11th)

We hope the breach in the Rideau Canal may not take so long a time to repair, as is reported, about a fortnight.

This will however like all other evils be productive of good, as it will induce attempts at new methods of stemming the rapids of the St. Lawrence with less difficulty, which we have no doubt will be successful.

Forwarding - The greatest possible activity prevails in this department in forwarding the vast quantity of flour and other provisions, with which our store houses are loaded.

Our enterprising Townsman J.H. Greer & Co., have we understand already forwarded an immense quantity - and we observe several of their first class barges, now loaded or loading for departure.

We have no means of knowing the actual quantity already forwarded by other houses, but it must be very great - whilst scarcely an hour passes in which some noble steamer or beautiful schooner with their thousands of barrels does not come along side our wharfs to take the place of what goes away.
