Full Text

p.2 It appears by the Canadian papers that the British Government have directed the purchase of the stock held by individuals in the Welland Canal and authorized the enlargement of the work to a steam boat canal. This movement will be of vast importance to Oswego, & presents the highest inducements for opening the rail road communication between this place and Syracuse. Steam boats running from here to all the ports on the upper lakes will secure to this route the whole western freight, and the completion of the rail road to Syracuse, will concentrate at this point the business and travel of the whole country bordering on Lake Ontario and the River St. Lawrence....
