FOR THE PALLADIUM
I would beg leave to draw the attention of the people to the situation of the Oswego Canal, through the medium of your paper. I have just seen one of our townsmen, who informs me, that the tow-path is in some places very considerably overflowed, so much so, that it is actually dangerous for horse and man. We have had plenty of promises that this should be remedied, but one year passes after the other and still the evil exists - is it not high time for the people to take it in hand, convene in town meeting and make the necessary representation to the proper authorities? It is all important to us.
