We understand that the large new lock No. 2 is finished, as also the lengthening of the two old locks N. 1 and 2, rendered necessary by the non-completion of the new lock No. 1 at Port Dalhousie; and that the canal generally is in such a state as to admit of the opening of navigation on the 1st of April, should the weather prove favorable, and of that prospect now appears satisfactory. Vessels measuring 138 feet or even 141, in length, can then pass- and the locks being 26 feet 6 inches wide. Last year the canal was not opened until the 1st of May.
