The Canal is now open its full length. We expect soon to see some of the large vessels up here, as we understand that no obstacle remains to prevent steamers and other vessels of large size from visiting our harbor. Great activity is still manifested in the vicinity of the basin. The immense storehouse of Messrs. Persons and Blain will shortly be roofed in, and we observe preparations being made for erecting another storehouse of smaller dimensions by Mr. Carroll. [Dundas Warder]
