p.2 Debate on the Welland Canal - in Provincial Parliament (2 1/2 columns).

The Welland Canal - more detail, gives yeahs and nays.

p.3 Utica and Oswego Steamboat Canal - will apply to Legislature to incorporate a company to build a canal from Oswego to Utica adapted for lake vessels. [N.Y. Commercial Advertiser]

Welland Canal - trade up from last year. [Oswego Palladium}

Steamboat Canada - As this boat was entering our harbor on Friday night, from Kingston, the wind blowing a gale at the time, she was driven on the east shore, where she grounded so firmly, that it has been impossible to get her off. The high winds that have prevailed since that time, have wore her about until she is now a perfect wreck, and will soon go to pieces. All the cargo and furniture, we learn, have been saved.

She was commanded by Capt. Peavy, an experienced and competent seaman, who we learn was a part owner, and no blame we believe can be attached to him for the accident. [Oswego Palladium]

Receiving, Storing, Forwarding and Commission Business - The Subscriber begs leave to inform the Public, that he has leased the extensive Store-House and Wharf, one of the largest in Upper Canada, lately erected at Port Hamilton, by A.N. McNab, Esq., situated directly in front of the Splendid New Stone Hotel, and is now prepared to attend to the above Business in all its Branches, and trusts from his long experience, together with punctuality and attention, to merit the patronage of the Public. The upper Stories are fitted up in a superior manner, for the receiving and Shipping of Grain, and from the great extent of the Store House and Wharf, every facility to Merchants and others engaged in the purchase of produce, etc. will be given, as well as the Receiving and Forwarding of Merchandize, of any, and every description, to all parts of the Provinces, or neighboring States, with the greatest care and despatch..

The charges will be as low, as any other respectable Establishment.

George F. Corbett.
