Canal Rioters - We regret to learn, that there has lately been some further disturbances among the laborers on the Feeder of the Welland Canal, in the vicinity of Broad Creek. The troubles, however, do not appear to have been extensive - the unemployed men, who attempted to stop the progress of the work, being so few in number, that on the appearance of Baron de Rottenburg, the special magistrate, backed by the troops stationed at Dunnville, the leaders were taken into custody, and the rabble speedily dispersed.
