p.2 The Navigation Laws [Montreal Courier]

p.3 The steamer Admiral yesterday arrived here from Toronto a little before noon and left on her return trip at 2 o'clock, p.m.; we understand it to be the intention to continue running her daily in the same way for the present. The Admiral has been running on this route all the winter, with the exception of some few days when the Bay of Toronto was so filled up with ice that she could not get in. On many occasions the Magnetic Telegraph was found exceedingly useful in communicating intelligence as to the propriety or impropriety of leaving port.

Lake Erie is so full of ice that little hope is entertained of the navigation thereon being opened until the middle of next month. [Niagara Chronicle]

New Vessels - Six new vessels are now building at Oswego, and preparations are making to commence a couple more before the opening of navigation. A large steamer, the hull of which was constructed at French Creek last season, is now finishing at Ogdensburgh - to be in readiness for summer business. The Utica Company have contracted for the building of a first class steamer to take a place in the line in the spring of 1848. There are several other additions to be made to the marine of this Lake at different points in the spring. Several vessels for the Oswego trade are constructing at the Lake Erie ship yards.

There are 13 vessels building at Sackett's Harbor and Point Peninsula. [Oswego Advertiser]
