Welland Canal Business - Wm. Hamilton Merritt, Esq., one of the directors of the Welland Canal Company, is in this city, and we are gratified in being able to inform the business publick, on his authority, that the Welland Canal is not only in good repair, but that the good feeling heretofore existing, in regard to our commercial intercourse through that channel, remains unimpaired.

We understand extensive arrangements have been made at this place to convey property through the Welland Canal to New York, by which our Canadian neightbours may feel assured that the utmost confidence prevails in passing through that route; and so long as they keep down the high prices of transportation, which will always prevail when the transit is confined to one channel, they will secure their share of the business of the lakes, as we believe every port west of Buffalo duly appreciates the importance of the Welland Canal as a channel of communication with the East. - Cleveland Herald
