p.2 The Rideau Canal may now be considered as closed, the last boat for the season, having arrived here yesterday evening. We are informed, however, that the navigation of this great route, is now as open, and the Canal as free of ice, as in the month of August last.

The Lake Boats have gone to their respective winter quarters, with the exception of the Traveller plying from Rochester to Toronto and the Head of the Lake - and the Steamer Canada, which still continues her trips between this Port and Oswego.

Our Bay and River Boats are still in active operation, between Prescott and the Head of the Bay of Quinte, and will probably continue to run for some time.

Improvement of the Trent - hoping for a large grant to continue work.
