p.2 Beauharnois Canal - investigation into the late riots. [Montreal Herald]

St. Lawrence Canal - We regret to announce that the navigation of the Long Sault branch of this Canal has been stopped for the present, in consequence of a serious breach of about 60 feet, in the banks about three miles below Dickenson's Landing. The steamer Highlander was prevented from proceeding on her downward trip by the timely notice of the break - conveyed to her by the Stage Agent, when on the point of entering the rapids. The Canada and Highlander now perform the trip to Dickenson's Landing as formerly, the Gildersleeve lying below. We understand that several weeks will be required to repair the damage done to the Canal.
