Full Text

p.3 The navigation is now entirely open, and Steamboats and schooners are arriving and departing almost every hour. The elegant Steamer the Great Britain has made one trip to Niagara. The Queenston one also; and on Sunday she left this port for Pleasant Bay, (about 60 miles) shipped 300 bushels of wheat, and returned about 6 o'clock on Monday evening. The Sir James Kempt has made two trips down, and one up the Bay. The Toronto has been at Prescott once, and the Niagara arrived from York yesterday morning.

Launch - On Saturday last Mr. Drummond's new schooner The Lady of the Lake, of 100 tons burden, was launched from the shipyard at Messessagua Battery. A great concourse of people attended, and they were gratified with the sight of as fine a launch as ever took place in Upper Canada.
