Sault Ste. Marie Canal - The Lake Superior Journal, July 7th, states that Mr. S. Keefer, accompanied by a surveying staff, arrived there on the 5th, and has commenced making the final survey of a canal on the Canadian side. We understand that his examinations will not be confined exclusively to the rapids, but will extend over the whole of the River Ste. Marie, from Lake Superior to Lake Huron, with the view of ascertaining the cost of rendering it navigable for vessels of the largest class now plying on the upper lakes. The works are to be of a permanent character, and all the experience gained upon the St. Lawrence Canals, applied to rendering these in every way efficient. It is to be hoped, that the Canadian Legislature, which meets in August, will take immediate action upon the subject of this survey, and make the canal a Provincial work.
