p.2 Rideau Canal - We have at last the pleasure to announce the opening of this important line of communication. The new steamboat Enterprise, built at Perth, after passing through the Tay Canal into the Rideau, reached this port yesterday, where she awaits the arrival, from Oswego, of her engine - manufactured at Syracuse. We hail this interesting evidence of the resources of a region of country, but a few years ago a pathless wilderness. Besides the Enterprise, a raft of 30,000 feet of Timber was passed through the locks at Kingston Mills. It will be seen by a "Notice," that Mr. Drummond's steamboat, the Rideau, is expected to leave Kingston for Bytown next week, and the new and beautiful little Margaret, owned by the same gentleman, will be ready in about a month to add her assistance, in forwarding the incipient, but productive commerce of the Rideau. [Kingston Chronicle]
