p.2 Iron Steam Vessels [Manchester April 4th]

The Welland Canal - Three vessels arrived here on Wednesday last, from Oswego via the Welland Canal, and one on Thursday, laden with merchandise. These schooners, the Winnebago, Willett, Medora and Buckley, are the first that have arrived this season from the lower Lake. Had the Welland Canal been repaired, and ready for navigation as soon as had been anticipated, vessels might have arrived here more than a month since; for, as early as the 11th ultimo, there were vessels at this port from the Canada side as low down as that channel. As it is, notwithstanding the obstructions which have thus been interposed, some advantage, in point of time, has been gained over the Erie Canal, as the harbor at Buffalo, at the date of our last advices, was blockaded. By this time, however, we presume, that the ice offers no further obstructions as the steamboat Uncle Sam arrived here on Thursday evening from Black Rock, having come up on the Canada side. Vessels from Buffalo are daily expected..... [Cleveland Herald, May 9th] with additional comment by [Oswego Palladium]

- Allan Napier McNab accused of poor management of the Desjardins Canal by the Radical press; acquitted of charges. [Toronto Patriot]
