p.3 We learn with much pleasure, that some of the inhabitants of this place have it in contemplation to form a Steam Navigation Forwarding Company, between Kingston and Montreal, via the Rideau Canal. Our good Town has not hitherto been remarkable for the enterprise of its inhabitants; and we, therefore, hail with pleasure any indication of the dawning of a new day upon us in this respect. The canal will be completed in the course of next summer, and no doubt is entertained but the greater portion of travelling and transmission of goods will be by this route.
