p.3 New Canal - Grenville, Ottawa River - the Royal Staff Corps., under the command of Captain Du Vernet, are to resume work. [Montreal ? Herald]
The William and John, a Durham Boat belonging to this port in charge of Mr. Benjamin Tucker, proceeded on Saturday the 13th inst., to the Port of Montreal, discharged her cargo of nearly 400 barrels of flour, and returned to this place last Saturday, having completed the trip in seven days and three hours. No instance of similar expedition is known on the river - and it is not probable that the trip will soon again be accomplished in so short a space of time, as the boat was particularly favoured by the winds.
