Welland Canal - The friends of this splendid improvement will be gratified to observe, by the Marine List published in another column, that the business through this route continues rapidly to increase; and no doubt will ultimately fulfil the most sanguine anticipations of its original projectors. We are assured by a gentleman connected with the operations on the canal, and who consequently has the best opportunity of judging correctly, that there is every prospect of the number of vessels passing this month, being nearly double that of any other month since the work has been navigable.
