p.3 As a corroboration of our previously expressed opinion, we are gratified in asserting, upon undoubted authority, that the Rideau Canal will be ready for navigation on or about the 15th of May. The repairs that were necessary at Jones's Falls are said to be completed. [Kingston Chronicle]

The different Steamboats, with a few exceptions, are now engaged in making their usual trips on the Lake. The American Steamboat United States, Capt. Vandewater, from Ogdensburgh, touched here on Monday evening. The Great Britain started for Prescott on Tuesday morning, to receive her furniture, and returned to Kingston yesterday, sooner than we had been led to anticipate, and left last evening. The William IV visited us on Wednesday morning on her way to Niagara, in an excellent state of preparation for the season. The Sir James Kempt and Perseverance are making their regular trips from Prescott to the head of the Bay; so that the tide of steam has fairly set in. [Kingston Chronicle]
