ADVERTISEMENT. - Notice is hereby given to the Public, that the TOLLS of the GOVERNMENT LOCKS and CANALS upon the RIVER St. LAWRENCE, will be REDUCED at the opening of the Navigation to the rates in force previously to the year 1827; but it will be obligatory to take out the TICKETS for the three Locks inclusively, viz. The Cascades, the Split Rock, and the Coteau du Lac, and which Tickets, signed by the Superintendent, will be issued on application to the Deputy Commissary General's Office at Montreal, countersigned by that Officer.

The Locks will be open on Sunday as well as on week-days, so as to obviate the great inconvenience which this detention has hitherto occasioned.

The rates to be paid will be required according to the following Tariff, in force before their last increase in 1827, and which is republished for general information: -

Durham Boats£2 10 0
Batteaux1 5 0
Small Craft0 12 6

The former arrangements relative to the breadth of beam, will continue in force; and passage through the Canals will be refused to all boats exceeding twelve feet six inches, in consequence of the injury caused to the works by forcing them through the Locks.

Boatmen and others are cautioned not to stick their spiked poles into the mason or wood work, as they will be rigorously prosecuted for all injury of this or any other description.

Commissariat Head Quarters,

Quebec, 30th March 1829.
