p.2 The Rise and Fall of the Waters of the Great Lakes [Journal of Commerce]

Celebration of Birth of Prince - Order of the Day - Third - At the hour of 11 o'clock precisely, the splendid Steamer just built by Capt. Gildersleeve , will be launched from the Kingston Marine Railway.

p.3 Steam Ship Association - meeting at Rochester to build a steam packet.

Welland Canal - Our Canada friends are making great efforts to accomplish, during the winter, the widening and deepening of this canal. The water was shut off on Monday week, and operations immediately commenced. Active preparations have been making for several weeks past, in the way of putting up shanties and procuring tools and provisions on the ground; and no doubt this work will be pushed forward with the utmost vigor and perseverance. It is estimated that about fifteen hundred men will be required, throughout the winter, to complete the whole. We hope our Legislature will look well to this, and instruct the canal commissioners to go on with the great work now in progress on the Erie Canal. Our neighbors deserve credit for what they are doing; but let us not sleep while they are so wide awake. [Comm. Advertiser]
