p.2 The Rideau Canal - We yesterday visited the foot of "Tuttle's Hill," the place at which, a few days since, ground was broken for the first time on the Kingston section of this splendid work. A Mr. Macdermott has contracted for the first two miles and a half of the Canal, and has cleared away the greater part of the wood from the site. He commences digging on Monday. There is already a village forming at the foot of "Tuttle's Hill," where the Canal intersects the road leading to Montreal - and is termed the Evergreen Village.
