p.2 Improvement of the St. Lawrence - The Herald of this morning makes the important announcement that "orders have been transmitted from London for an immediate survey of the Rapides Ste. Anne with the view of ascertaining the most propitious point for establishing a lock or Canal, which shall overcome the impediment offered by these rapids to the communication between Montreal and the Rideau Canal; and with the view of obviating the necessity of passing round Ile Perrot, as at present; and through a lock which, in some seasons, has proved inaccessible tot the steamboats, and compelled a portage of passengers and cargo, over the St. Anne Rapids, from one steamboat to the other. This survey will be immediately entered upon by the Commanding Royal Engineer of the Montreal district, in person; and an estimate made of the expense to accomplish the object in an efficient and permanent manner." [Montreal Gazette, Nov. 8th]

The Steam Boats
RIDEAU & MARGARET,
With Engines and Furniture Complete.
These Vessels are in good sailing condition, and have been constantly used on the RIDEAU CANAL during the present year - in fact, it is needless to say further in recommendation of them than to state, that they were successful during the unusual lowness of the waters of the past season, and during most of the time of their running, had three or four heavily laden barges in tow.
THE DURHAM BOATS
MARGARET, THREE BROTHERS and ROB ROY
With Masts and Rigging.
The sale will take place on board the respective vessels which will be moored alongside of the late Mr. Drummond's wharf.
Persons wishing to have an interest in one of the finest water communications in the Canadas, would do well to embrace this opportunity.
The terms which are liberal will be made known at the time of sale.
