Cornwall, Nov. 19th - The work of repairing the gap in the Cornwall Canal bank above lock 18, which was carried away on June 23rd, wrecking the O. and N.Y. swing bridge, is about completed. At least the gap has been filled by a solid concrete wall, 260 feet long, 20 feet wide at the bottom, three feet wide at the top, and 39 feet from top to bottom. This wall is being reinforced on the outside by a bank of earth and stones, which will be between 30 and 40 feet wide at the top. The stone used to weigh down the coffer dam built around the break under the superintendency of Mr. J.L. Weller, of St. Catharines, immediately after the accident, will be deposited outside the concrete wall. Into this wall a concrete pier 23 feet in diameter and rising 24 feet above the canal, has been built, for the O. and N.Y. swing bridge, which will be in place in a couple of months.
