p.3 Rideau Canal - In consequence of a report that the Locks and Dams at the Kingston Mills had yielded to the pressure of the water, Colonel By made a hasty excursion to Kingston last week, and was fully satisfied that nothing but malice could have prompted such a rumour. We advise all who have not seen the Kingston Mill improvements this year to visit them. Before the navigation closes, these fine locks will be completed, and in a manner which must reflect credit on the Contractor, and insure the permanent success of the important undertaking at this point.

Steamboat John By - We yesterday visited the yard where this Steamer is building, and were pleased to observe the rapid progress which has been made within the last few days. Before the end of the ensuing week the John By will be "in Frame," and the necessary materials for "planking" are nearly all ready. The engine, we understand, is more than half completed.

Notice - the shareholders in John By to pay 3rd instalment of 10% by Sept. 7th.
