Welland Canal Navigation - We are authorized by the chief engineer, Mr. Power, to state, that the canal will be complete readiness for navigation throughout, in the course of the ensuing week; but from the state of the ice at Port Colborne, he thinks it quite probable that vessels will not be able to pass out before the latter part of the first week in May.

The utility of deepening the Feeder, and constructing the Branch Cut, is now strikingly apparent; as the mouth of the Grand River has been for several days clear of ice. In ordinary seasons, there is no doubt, but that the navigation will be open three weeks earlier.
