Cranberry Marsh

A great number of "proposals" were received by the directors, on the day appointed (4th inst.) For clearing, grubbing and excavating this grand division of the Welland Canal. The successful competitors were, for excavating from sections No 8 to 15, Messrs. Martindale M'Mahon, and Akenhead: and the whole to the remainder of the work to Messrs. Simpson, Hartwell, Monson, and Pratt. The latter firm have advertised for 1,000 labourers, as will be seen by reference to another column of this day's sheet: and we are informed they intend to commence operations immediately. May they persevere to the end, and be successful in every laudable exertion for their own benefit, and the publick good.
