p.2 Public Improvements - the St. Lawrence Canal may be routed along the south side of the River from Lake St. Francis to Beauharnois, instead of proposed route by Vaudreuil; it is hoped the new Governor General pushes forward the immediate enlargement of the Welland Canal, and completion of the St. Lawrence canal.

The Weather - ...Yesterday there was a heavy gale on the lake and several schooners were driven into our harbour from various quarters, some of them from the head of the lake.

The Stave Trade - This is becoming a very extensive branch of trade at this place. Not less than 20 vessels are now discharging their cargoes about Kingston.

We regret to learn that the Schooner Sir George Arthur, P. MacIntyre, Master, was capsized in a gale on Thursday last, near the Ducks. She left this harbour on the morning of Thursday, but unfortunately without having any ballast on board. The Captain and crew saved themselves in the long-boat.
