p.3 We understand that one of the Locks on the Rideau Canal gave way a day or two ago. There were two barges in the lock at the time, one of which was sunk. We presume the damage will be repaired immediately - as it would be a serious loss to the mercantile community if the navigation of the Rideau were interrupted for any length of time, at this season of the year.

Welland Canal Tolls - are increasing from 1841 to 1842.

Died - In this town on Thursday last, after a short but severe illness, Mr. Luke H. Shea, master Shipwright at the Kingston Marine Railway. Mr. Shea was of a kind and generous disposition, and much respected by all who had intercourse with him. He stood at the head of his profession in Canada; and has left many monuments of his skill in naval architecture.
