Another Canal Celebration.  The citizens of Salina, and adjacent towns, celebrated on the 14th inst. the opening of the locks at Salina, which have been built during the past season, for the admission of the first boat from the Erie Canal into the waters of Onondaga Lake.

Several boats, with a large concourse of citizens passed through and entered the lake, where a salute was fired; the boats then returned to Salina, and the festivities of the day were concluded by about 50 gentlemen partaking of dinner at Beach's. The navigation of boats is now complete to Lake Ontario, with the exception of two miles land carriage at Oswego Falls. - Onondaga Register.
