Beaucharnois Canal - A man named Dan Barron, the same who assaulted Mr. Dunlop, one of the contractors, a few days since, has been taken by the police, and is now in gaol. He is a bad character.

Another ringleader, an old offender from Lachine, was taken off the works, yesterday morning. A party of cavalry accompanied the police force as far as the banks of the canal, to support the civil authority as some resistance was anticipated from the other workmen. Mr. Laviolette, the stipendiary magistrate, also proceeded with the dragoons, upon this occasion.

The men are all quietly at work, at present, numbering about 2,500. Nearly 1,000 still remain idle. - Mont. Cour.
