p.2 Desjardins Canal, from Burlington Heights to Dundas - contracts made for work to start. [U.E. Loyalist]

A Report was in circulation last week that the Steam Boat Niagara had been got off, from the beach near Long Point, where she was unfortunately stranded last fall: - The Report is incorrect; but from the assistance rendered by the Dock Yard at Kingston, in sending Chain Cables, it was confidently expected that, in a few days she would be afloat. - We hope that we shall soon have it in our power, to announce her arrival in port.

The Queenston performs her trips regularly from Prescott to York and Niagara, once every week. - The convenience of a second, and even of a third Boat, would however be a great accommodation to travellers. We are happy to hear that Captain McKenzie, late in command of the Frontenac (now laid up,) has made arrangements for building a new Boat, to be propelled by an Engine of greater power, than that of any other now navigating the Lake. - The acknowledged ability of Capt. McKenzie while in command of the Frontenac, the regularity with which her trips were performed, and the attention he at all times bestowed to the comfort and convenience of his passengers, induce us to hope that the undertaking he has commenced will be speedily carried into effect. [U.E. Loyalist]
