The Welland Canal - Our correspondent at St.Catharines informs us that the Welland Canal is in first rate order throughout. The schooner Charles Crocker, from Oswego, passed St.Catharines on the 12th April, laden with salt, for Cleveland, in Ohio, and was in Lake Ontario on her return to Oswego, with a cargo of 4,000 bushels of wheat, on the 30th of the same month. The schooner Erie And Ontario, with a detachment of Her Majesty's 24th regiment on board, left Amherstburgh at two P.M. on Wednesday, the 18th April, and landed her passengers at Toronto early on Saturday the 21st. These facts ought to convince every one of the vast importance of finishing the Welland Canal, in a substantial manner, without delay, both in a commercial and a national point of view. The Americans from local advantage posssessed by this work, can never construct one of compete with it. We trust His Excellency Sir George Arthur will visit the Welland Canal and make himself and Her Majesty's Government acquainted with its advantage. Toronto Pat.
