The Canals - Lachine Canal re-opened; water partially let in on 15th. [Montreal Gazette]

Lachine Canal - The steamer Albion, Captain Johnson, one of the large class of boats belonging to Messrs. H. & S. Jones, arrived at the Canal Basin wharf at one o'clock yesterday, with a full cargo. We understand that the Albion came down the Canal as far as Cote St. Paul, on Tuesday evening, but in consequence of one of the old bridges not having been removed, she was detained till near 12 o'clock yesterday. As soon, however, as Mr. Barrett, the enterprising Engineer of the Board of Works, heard of the detention, he proceeded to the spot, and at once caused the impediment to be removed.

The Albion was the 1st steamer that passed through the Beauharnois Canal two years ago, and is now the1st in the Lachine Canal. [Montreal Courier]
