p.2 The Closing of the Navigation - Although navigation has not closed for the year 1850, it is closing fast. The Rideau Canal is shut up; the Montreal Mail boats have ceased running, and the mails thereto are transmitted by stage. Some barges and perhaps a freight steamer or two, yet remain to go down. On the lake, there is yet some steamboat transit. On Monday the Princess Royal went up to Toronto, on Wednesday the New Era, and last night the Magnet made her last trip. One or two of the American lake boats are still at work, making irregular trips between Oswego and Ogdensburgh; and it is said, that the British Queen will be employed on the river between Ogdensburgh and Kingston for some time yet. The Prince of Wales and Farmer are still on the Bay. The Henry Gildersleeve purposes to make two or three trips between Kingston and Ogdensburgh. The Lord Elgin arrived from Montreal on Wednesday, and is now laid up.
