Welland Canal - The collector of Port Dalhousie reports an increase on the tolls of upwards of £500 on the month just ended over the receipts of June, 1852, and of £1,400 increase on that part of the season that has transpired over the same period of last year. When the reduced tolls on railroad iron are taken into consideration, as also on salt, it will be seen what a vast increase of business must have taken place.

The receipts of customs at the office of this port, for the quarter ending 5th June, are in advance 100 per cent on the receipts of the corresponding quater last year. This notwithstanding the admission of salt free, and the reduction of duty on sugars, as also on several other articles, proves the progress of the country in wealth and comfort.
