p.1 Welland Canal - discussed in House of Assembly (6 columns).

p.2 We understand that it is the intention of the proprietors of the Steam Boat Constitution, to run her next season alternately, between this Town, Rochester and Oswego. This arrangement will facilitate our intercourse with the State of New York, and tend much towards the increase of our trade with the United States, which has already become of great importance. It will also we have no doubt, bring many travellers into this part of the province, who otherwise would not visit us owing to the uncertainty of schooner navigation, and many persons on their way to York, Kingston etc. will prefer crossing here, where once landed, owing to the numerous and well arranged Steam Boats which ply on our waters, they can proceed in any direction without loss of time. We also understand, that those gentlemen who intend building a boat here for that route, have stated their willingness to abandon the project in case the Constitution is sent here, their object being merely one of utility. It is our opinion, that the business would amply remunerate the proprietors of the Constitution. [Cobourg Star]

The workmen for the new steam boat had commenced last Monday. The shell of one of the boilers was completed at the Prescott Foundry last Thursday. Mr. Stanford, the master builder, will have her ready the first of July without fail. [Prescott Gazette]
