p.3 St. Catharines, Sept. 18th - A number of vessels were aground in the canal today in consequence of low water. In the level between locks six and seven there were four vessels aground, and in the level above that as many more. The late drought has doubtless had considerable to do with this state of affairs. The water is said to be at least two feet lower now than it was in spring. On the long level between Por Colborne and Allanburg the water was four feet ten inches below the water line on Saturday, and there is still further downward tendency.
