THE CANAL AGAIN. - In the regulations published Saturday governing transit through the St. Clair Flats Canal, the first article states that vessels are forbidden " to land or tie up to the banks, unless on Government business." The United States engineer at this port states that this is not to be construed as applying to local passenger steamers touching at the banks. They will be allowed, as heretofore, to make their regular landings. Capt. W. H. Mott, custodian of the canal, has orders to see that the regulations are strictly enforced. The depth of the water is now 16 feet.
