p.2 We have much pleasure in announcing the completion of the Rideau Canal. On Monday last, this magnificent undertaking which has, through difficulties and embarrassment, triumphed over all the apparent impediments of nature, received the finishing stroke, and may now be navigated by craft of any description with the utmost safety and facility. It is a matter of regret, however, that the John By steamer, which we had anxiously expected would have taken her place on this route, has been found, by miscalculation in her measurement, unsuited to the intended purpose, and the proprietors have been compelled to adapt her to a different object than that originally intended. We have reason, nevertheless, to believe, that other arrangements will now be made, that will render no inconvenience to the public by the oversight in the construction of this fine vessel. [Kingston Chronicle]
