p.2 Obstructions in the St. Lawrence - Messrs. Maillefort and Raasloff, who have been engaged in surveying the obstructions between Montreal and Kingston, have arrived at the conclusion that it is perfectly practicable to clear the river of these obstructions,and make a channel 12 feet deep, for the passage of vessels up and down the river. Mr. James Stewart, whose reputation stands high, and who is now occupied in making surveys for the Grand Trunk Line, has promised to give his powerful co-operation and as the engineers are ready to proceed with the trial, we hope soon to have an opportunity of reporting a successful result.
