p.2 details of motion made in U.S. Senate to authorize the U.S. to build a Niagara Canal around the falls of Niagara.
For the Chronicle & Gazette.
Mr. Editor, - The generous countenance which you kindly extended to my crude communication, and the liberal notice of the subject which it elicited from your respectable contemporary, the Montreal Gazette, encourage the hope that the authorities within whose power it is to reward the meritorious, will not overlook the claims I have brought under notice. In addition to those enumerated, it would be unfair to omit the name of Mr. McIntyre, the ingenious and enterprising originator of the useful Marine Rail Way now in full, active and profitable operation here, who, in the very depth of the winter, with a bold, adventurous and determined crew, navigated Lake Ontario, in the service of the country, with that beautiful steam boat, the St. George....
Your obedient servant, "M."
