p.2 The Breach in the Canal - From intelligence received from the spot, the breach in the Canal will be made good early next week. Heavy relays of men are working at the breach night and day. The traffic from Montreal is scarcely affected by this accident for the mail contractor has put on, between Cornwall and Dickinson's Landing, a sufficiency of good stage and baggage waggons to get over the portage comfortably in less than three hours. It usually took four hours and a half for the steamer to pass through the canal, so no time is lost by the present arrangement. [Cornwall Freeholder]
