Survey of the Harbour.

Mr. Hamel, who has been engaged in making a survey of this harbor, has returned to Ottawa. This survey was made with a view of ascertaining the practicability of further improving that harbor by removing a portion of the Carruthers and Point Frederick shoals sufficient to give a depth of 13 feet of water in these places. The first survey was made in 1874, and the plant necessary for carrying out the work of deepening the shoals was constructed in the spring of 1875, and in the following year the work was carried on extensively; since when, however, operations have ceased, and the survey just completed was probably ordered with a view to an early resumption of the undertaking. The obstruction in the case of the Carruthers shoal consists of large rock boulders. The number of yards of this stone removed in 1875 was 2,696, and in the following year $6,267.14 was expended in the work of improvement.
