p.3 The good people of Oswego appear much pleased with their business prospects this season. They issue the following Bulletin through the Palladium of the 29th ultimo, with much seeming complacency.

"It is now one month since our lake navigation opened. Every thing indicates a great increase of business. Although a large number of fine schooners have been built during the last winter, it is evident that the increase of business on the lake far exceeds the increase of vessels. The "busy hum of business" has been heard on our wharves for the last thirty days, while the Buffalo harbor is still blocked up with ice. This is nothing uncommon; our navigation usually commences from a month to six weeks before vessels can sail from Buffalo. In this our village has a decided advantage." [Oswego Palladium]

The Rideau Canal - The Steam Boat Enterprise arrived here from Bytown, on Sunday last, being the first arrival by that route this season. The Bateaux with the baggage of the 24th Regiment are hourly expected by the same Byway.

Notice - Four shares of the Steam Boat Commodore Barrie to be sold by the subscriber. Time will be given for payment. For particulars enquire of Thomas Kirkpatrick, Esq.

Kingston, May 5th, 1835. William Johnstone.
