Welland Canal

From various causes, the principal of which were the Niagara Falls exhibition on the 8th ult. and the execution of M'Cal the Monday following, which drew the attention of many of the hands from the work, the excavation of the Deep Cut has not progressed as rapidily for the last month as the one proceeding. It appears, however, notwithstanding the great loss of the time on these occasions, by the usual monthly estimate of the engineers, that about 78,000 yards of earth have been taken out of that enormous artificial chasm during the month of September; and we also learn,t hat the operations still continue with increased vigour and activity, with every reasonable prospect of a speedy completion.
