Messrs. Counter, Hill and Ford, who went recently to Watertown as a deputation from the Board of Directors, made their report to the stockholders, by which it appears that the Directors of the Rome and Watertown continue firmly pledged to their former agreement to bear one half of the cost of constructing the Canal. This work is of the very highest importance to Kingston as completing the nearest route from the sea-board to Upper Canada, and the inhabitants of this city are bound to exert themselves by all means in their power to promote its success.
