p.3 The Welland Canal - Sir John Colborne visits, progress continues. [York Courier]

Welland Canal - We are happy that it is in our power to give the public some correct information respecting the Welland Canal. Lieutenant Jones of the Royal Navy has just returned from a cruise, and states that on Friday last his vessel, the Bull-Frog, which draws nearly 6 1/2 feet water, passed through the whole line of the Canal, that is from the Welland River to Lake Ontario, in 16 hours, without the least obstruction. One horse only was used in towing the vessel down. His Excellency the Lieutenant Governor accompanied Mr. Jones when he ascended the Canal, and on their way they met an American Schooner bound for Port Dalhousie. [Herald]

The Desjardins' Canal - work continued by contractor Mr. Gibb. [York Courier]

Notice - A meeting of the Stockholders of the new Steam-Boat, intended to ply between Prescott and the head of the Bay of Quinte, will be held at Myer's Hotel, on Saturday next, the 14th inst. at 10 o'clock, A.M. precisely, for the purpose of appointing directors, and settling other matters connected with the undertaking.
