Full Text


For the Kingston Chronicle.

Mr. Editor - A sensible article appeared in your last number signed Publius suggesting the propriety of Parliamentary interference, on the subject of compelling steam-vessels to be provided with proper stagings, etc. to communicate between the vessels and the wharves with a view to prevent the frequent casualties of which we read in the Newspapers. This is all very good but I would go a little further and oblige the owners of wharves to keep them in good repair, for I give you my honor I was once very near being drowned on McGuire's wharf. Down I went slap dash between the boards - but fortunately my umbrella which I always carry under my arm kept me from sinking.




Public Notice is hereby given that the Welland Canal is now open for the passage of Vessels from Lake Erie to Lake Ontario.

By order of the Board of Directors.

Jas. Black, Sec'y.

Welland Canal Office,

St. Catharines, Nov. 30th, 1829.
