Relative to the closing of the Welland Canal, the following circular has been issued by the canal authorities:
"To enable the works connected with the enlargement of the Welland Canal to be proceeded with during the ensuing winter, the water will be shut off at the junction of the feeder with the main line, and at Port Colborne, about the 1st of December next, and as soon after that time as possible those parts of the canal south of Port Robinson and to the north of Allenburg, will be emptied as soon as circumstances will permit.
Owners and masters of vessels will bear this in mind, as all steamboats, barges, scows and vessels of every description must be removed from those parts of the canal south of "Deep Cut," adjoining the village of Allenburg, near Marlett's Pond, and in the vicinity of the new works at Port Dalhousie by the time navigation closes for the season."
