p.2 Canal - Lake Business - Our wharves and docks are crowded, at this time, to a degree of which we recollect no parallel. "Goods, wares and merchandise" of all nameable kinds and descriptions are pouring in here, for the eternal west, in quantities that wholly beggar description..... - busy harbor. [Buffalo Whig]

Goods have been received at Chicago, Illinois, from New York, in twenty days, by the brig Indiana, of the Eagle line, and in twenty one days by the schooner Agnes Barton, of Buffalo; distance over 2000 miles, and the average of the passage one hundred miles per day, including trans-shipment at this place and stoppages on the lakes. [Buffalo Whig]

Enlargement of the Erie Canal - to proceed, to cost about $12,000,000. [Albany Argus]
