p.3 The business on the Rideau Canal is, we are very glad to see, beginning with encouraging prospects. Steam Boats arrive almost daily at this port from Bytown, having large and commodious barges in tow, and containing a good share of passengers. The Thomas McKay went down the Canal yesterday loaded with a cargo of pork, and having two barges attached, one containing 800 barrels of flour, and the other 3000 bushels of wheat, besides other freight. There is now a fine large barge loading at Cartwright's wharf, which is expected to take 950 barrels of flour. Three of the boats that left Kingston for Bytown last week were loaded with Pork, shipped by our enterprising Inspector, Mr. Scobell.

The Steam-boat Bytown, which arrived here yesterday on her first trip, will leave here tomorrow morning at 8 o'clock. She is a handsome addition to the number of the Canal steam craft.
