p.3 The Commissioners appointed for the improvement of the internal navigation of this Province have we understand, completed their survey between Lake Erie & Lake Ontario, and have been successful in finding a practicable route for cutting a Canal between these Lakes. We hope that ways and means will soon be devised for carrying into effect this desirable object, as the completion of it would be of incalculable benefit to the Western Districts, in facilitating the transport of their produce to Lower Canada, and in doing away all inducement for the farmers and merchants of that part of the Province to forward their commodities to market through the United States.

1st - from Quebec to Montreal by steam-boat.
