The department of railways and canals of the Canadian government has issued a notice to vessel owners in reference to fixed bowsprits of vessels passing through the Welland Canal, by which it will be seen that although the restriction as to movable bowsprits has been removed for 1883, masters will be held responsible , under the canal regulations, for any damages that may be done by their vessels in passing through, to either the bridges or any other portion of the works. The notice reads as follows:

For the navigable season of 1883 vessels will be allowed to pass through the Welland canal without regard as to fixed or movable bowsprits other than they have hitherto done; they will, however, be held liable for any damages they may do to the bridges or other works.

By order A. P. Bradley
Department of Bridges and Canal, Ottawa, April 12, 1883.
