Welland Canal Feeder - We understand that water will be shut off from the Feeder to the Welland Canal, at its entrance from the Grand River, on Monday next, to afford the several contractors for widening and deepening that portion of the work, an opportunity of immediately commencing operations in good earnest. Messrs. Haight & Collier, of this village, who have taken several miles of the work to execute, have already advertised for 400 laborers, at Marshville, to commence on the 10th inst.. Active preparations have been making for several weeks part in the way of putting up shanties, and procuring tools and provisions on the ground; and no doubt the work will be pushed forward with the utmost vigor and perseverance. It is estimated that about 1,500 men will be required through the winter to complete the whole.
