Public Improvement - We are glad to see, that the Board of Works is in full activity. We learn that Mr. Keefer has for some time, been absent, in visiting the western parts of the province, and examining the different reports and surveys which have been made on the Burlington Bay Canal, all the ports on Lake Erie, and some of the principle provincial roads. Mr. Killaly has lately returned from a visit to the works on the river Trent. Contracts have been entered into, for the improvement of the Welland Canal, and the work will commence immediately, and is to be completed during the winter. Mr. Hawkins, deputy surveyor, we observe, has received instructions to run the new line from Toronto to Lake Huron. Mr. Cull has completed the survey and report for the improvement of the military road between the river St. Lawrence and L'Original, on the Ottawa - and we learn he is about to proceed to lay out the new lines from Brantford to London, and from this place to Lake Erie, Sandwich, Amherstburgh and Port Sarnia. Besides the works in Canada West, a great number of important works in Canada East, are in progress. - Kings. Chron.
