Repaired - The immense breach of the St.Lawrence canal, which had the effect of interrupting the navigation of the Long Sault Rapids upwards, has been completely repaired, as well as several other portions of the embankment puddled and rendered apparently strong and water-tight. The guard lock at the upper end will be opened to-morrow for the purpose of filling the canal, and by Monday next, it is expected that the Gildersleeve will pass through to Kingston. - We sincerely trust that the navigation will sustain no further obstruction from any inefficiency in the canal. - Cornwall Observer
