From the Utica Gazette

The aqueduct across the Mohawk Rover, at Little Falls, was finished last week and filled with water. This is a structure of considerable magnitude, built entirely of stone, in point of solidity and beauty, probably not exceeded by any work of the kind in the United State. It forms a connection between the Erie Canal and the old cut on the opposite side of the river, and answers the double purposes of opening a communication to the village of Little Falls, and of feeding the canal with water.

A Marble slab , with the following inscription, executed in a very handsome style by Mr. Erastus Cross, of this village, is placed in the parapet wall over the centre in the principal arch.
