We are glad to learn, that for some time past, under the direction of the Government, a careful survey has been made of the River St. Lawrence from Prescott downwards. From the result of this examination there cannot be the least doubt, that a perfectly safe channel for vessels drawing eight feet water exists through the entire distance to Montreal; and that all that is requisite is that the channel should be properly marked out by buoys. There is also every reason to be satisfied, that at a very trifling expense - probably not over ten or twenty thousand pounds - the few existing obstructions can be removed; and the whole route made safely navigable to vessels drawing ten feet of water.
