p.2 The St. Ann's Rapids - the petition of A. McNabb, Esq. and others from Kingston, presented to the House of Assembly by A. Manahan, M.P.P. for Hastings, - "in consequence of the non-construction of a lock at St. Ann's Rapids, the whole benefit of the (Rideau Canal) has, in a great degree, been monopolized by.... the Ottawa and Rideau Forwarding Company, they having built one on private property;" and will not allow a competitor's boat to pass through even with payment of toll.
In the House of Assembly on Friday last, A. Manahan brought in a bill to incorporate a Joint Stock Company, to be called the Upper Canada Forwarding and Marine Insurance Company, with a capital of £150,000. It was read a first time, and ordered for a second reading the following day. The advantages derivable from an institution of the kind, are of the most important description; we shall endeavor to point them out in our next.
