Welland Canal - We are happy that it is in our power to give the public some correct information respecting the Welland Canal. Lieutenant Jones, of the Royal Navy has just returned from a cruise, and states that on Friday last his vessel, the Bull Frog, which draws nearly 6 1/2 feet water, passed through the whole line of the canal, that is from the Welland River to Lake Ontario, in 16 hours without the least obstruction. One horse only was used in towing the vessel down. His Excellency the Lieutenant Governor accompanied Mr. Jones when he ascended the canal, and on their way met an American schooner bound for Port Dalhousie.
