p.2 Continuation of the St. Lawrence Canal - We understand that the Government have decided upon constructing the continuation of the St. Lawrence Canal on the South shore of the River through the seigniory of Beauharnois. The work, we are happy to learn, is to be commenced forthwith, under the management of the Board of Works. It is, indeed, stated that the ground will be broken this week. This extensive work will afford employment to a large number of the labouring classes of Emigrants now daily arriving on our shores.

Lake Trade - There was received at this port during the week ending Saturday evening last, from the upper Lakes, 40,621 bushels of wheat. The receipts of flour, pork and other articles were about at the usual rate. [Oswego Herald June 21st]

Ice - The Officer's Mess of H.M.S. Niagara require to be supplied with ice for the season. Any persons wishing to undertake the same will please send in their terms.
