The Condition of Mud Lock— The Syracuse Journal make a favorable report of the condition of Mud Lock. It says:

A visit to Mud Lock yesterday afternoon showed us that the current reports of the condition of the work there were highly exaggerated. The flood was more severe in the river than for many years, but the fullest precautions possible had been taken against its doing serious damage to the new lock in process of construction. Notwithstanding this care, the aspect of affairs there on Sunday was not promising for an immediate resumption of the work, but the arrival on Monday of Commissions Wright and the adoption of a plan of operations by him in concert with the engineer in charge, has already put a new phase upon the matter. The pit of the new lock is being relieved of the water in it, and the dams extended so as to allow the future prosecution of the work without interruption.. There is now every reasonable probability that the lock will be completed and ready for use at the opening of navigation.
