p.2 Improvement of the St. Lawrence - a meeting held at Brockville on Nov. 10th to push for improvements.

The Weather continues remarkably mild for the season, and there is at present every appearance of the navigation remaining open to an unusually period. The bay and river steamboats continue to ply with their wonted regularity. The lake boats have taken up their winter quarters - the Alciope at the Dock Yard at this place, and the Queenston and Niagara at Prescott. Mr. Hamilton's new boat, the Great Britain, we learn, is now nearly completed. She is said to be by far the finest steam-vessel in America.
