Full Text

Superintendent Bennett, informs us that there has been a large amount of work done on the Chenango canal this spring, slush snow that prevailed during the month of April, in order that the canal might be ready on the 5th of May, the day appointed for the opening of navigation.

There was a heavy break near Clinton which had to be repaired, and many of the locks have been overhauled and replanked.

The Superintendent speaks in high terms of the services of Mr. Alvin Wells, of the "State shop," and William B. King, of Oxford, who had charge of the teams in filling the break. Mr. Bennett has been untiring in his exertions to get the canal in good navigable order, and is, we believe, earnestly trying to keep down the expenses. Having sole charge of the long line of the Chenango canal, his labors are necessarily arduous; but we believe that he will show a good record at the end of the year.
