p.2 Rideau Canal - a letter describing canal, also mentions American canals - written by R.J. Routh, to the Hon. J. Stewart, Commissariat, Canada, Quebec, Aug. 4th, 1830. ( 1 1/2 columns)

p.3 A new Steam Boat, the Charles Carrol arrived here on Monday from Sacket's Harbour. We understand that a sum of money was subscribed by the inhabitants at the Harbour, upon condition of her running between there and Kingston for a certain period. She appears to us to be fitted up suitable for the shortness of the passage, with neat cabins, having six berths in the Ladies cabin. This quick and convenient communication between here and the Harbour must be a great accommodation to the public. The price of passage is one dollar.
