p.2 The Sault Ste. Marie Canal - The Lake Superior Journal of the 13th June says:- The Canal is doing well. On Tuesday the water was raised to eleven and a half feet. The banks remain firm, there is yet some frost, but in one place only, and that as effectually prevents the water from rising rapidly and to a full head, without endangering the work, as much as if the water overflowed the whole extent of the banks to the same depth; consequently the water rises very slow, and the banks are tested inch by inch. But the story is very nearly told, and we confidently believe that before the next issue of our paper the Canal will be in use, and prove the whole work to be of the most substantial character.
