Break Repaired - St. Catharines, May 18th - The break at lock No. 21 on the new Welland canal was repaired, and locking resumed this afternoon. The steamer Cuba, which caused the break, will have to go on the dry dock for repairs, before being able to proceed up the lakes. This will probably take two or three days. The Merchants Line of Montreal will have to face a large bill of damages, not only from the canal authorities, but from the farmers, whose lands were flooded. The damage to the canal will cost the Merchants company in the neighborhood of $2,000.
