Welland Canal Feeder - The contractors for this work, not having as yet, obtained a sufficient number of hands to enable them to complete their contracts, by the time specified, (although the season has been unusually favorable, and the work, has progressed rapidly, considering the number of men employed) have given public notice, in handbills, that 1,000 additional laborers are wanted immediately, to whom seven shillings, New York currency, per day, will be paid, on and after the 10th of March next - being one shilling more than they have heretofore received. Board can readily be obtained, for $2 per week. Now is the time of the laborer`s harvest - plenty of money, and plenty of work, with liberal wages, most probably for a long time to come.
