p.3 We are happy to learn that a new boat is to be immediately built, by the Rideau and Ottawa Company at this port, to replace the Thomas McKay on the Rideau Canal. Several Barges are also to be built. The surplus profits of the Company during the past season, we learn, are to be applied to the building of new boats on the route.
It will be gratifying to the friends of the Rideau route to learn that during the past season, little or no damage was sustained by the vast quantities of goods which passed through this great channel of communication.
The fast sailing schooner ST. LAWRENCE, now lying at Kingston, where she can be inspected at any time through the winter. She underwent a thorough repair last Spring, and was put in complete order for the Timber or any other business. She has got a stern Port, and is capable of carrying 4500 feet of square timber, and has proved herself to be as good, if not better than any other vessel on the Lake.
Terms will be very liberal - Persons wishing to purchase will do well to apply early.
Kingston, Dec. 10th, 1835. JOHN IVES
