p.2 The Government Locks upon the St. Lawrence, at the Cascades, were in such a dilapidated state that it was expected the walls would fall, in the course of this season, and impede the commercial intercourse between the two provinces. The Governor in Chief was pleased to order a thorough and permanent repair of these locks to be undertaken as soon as the return of spring would render it practicable. Through the unremitted exertions of Capt. Wright, the Commanding Engineer in this district, and of Lieutenant Yolland, the executive officer on the spot, the walls of these locks have been already taken down and rebuilt, together with the wing walls etc. and new lock gates have been made and hung, since the opening of this spring; and the locks were re-opened for the passage of boats on Friday the 18th.
