p.2 THE £25,000 JOB - shady financial dealings of Welland Canal Co. [Toronto Constitution]

Rideau Canal - We have good authority from the most authentic source, to contradict the rumor that was copied in this journal from the Bathurst Courier, and which had been rather industriously circulated here, that the Bywash at Long Island on the Rideau Canal had given way. Our informant states what must be highly satisfactory to the public, that having seen the work both during its progress and after its completion, it is, in his opinion, done in the most solid, substantial and permanent manner, and reflects the greatest credit on the Engineer in charge. He further states that of twenty barges sent up by the Ottawa and Rideau Forwarding Company, thirteen had passed the locks at Long Island on Tuesday on their way to Kingston, and that one barge loaded with wheat, for the New Edinburgh mills, had come down. [Courier]
