p.2 The canal has been thronged with passing vessels since our last, and so far as we hear every thing works well. Some of the old schooners look quite diminutive in the new locks. The canal presents a very handsome appearance where it is perfected, and men are actively engaged in completing the towing path. The Oswego and Chicago line of propellers appear to do a good business - a large number of passengers went up on the first day, and on Sunday morning the New York, from Oswego the day before, went up, with several families on board. These emigants seem all very respectable, and tolerably well off. [St. Catherines Journal]
