p.2 A friend at Grenville informs us that the Canal there is not to be widened and, in the course of two or three weeks it will be finished. The Carillon and Chute au Blondeau portions of this Canal, will also very soon be opened. That at the Chute, is perhaps, the most extraordinary work of the kind in the world; it is an immense deep cut through the solid rock, one of the strata of which is no less than five feet thick - it is about two hundred yards in length. The lock, for there is only one, is not made of mason work, as is usual, but cut out of the solid rock, except a small portion at the hanging of the gate.
