WESTERN TERMINATION OF THE GRAND CANAL
First arrival of a Canal Boat at Buffalo.--On Thursday morning, the Canal boat Superior, Capt. Sloan, arrived in this Village, from the East. She staid but a short time. Our citizens, generally, were not aware of the fact that the section of the canal between this and the Rock, was so far completed as to admit of the passage of boats. There is now a water communication between this Village and Albany, with the exception of about eight miles on the mountain ridge. The whole line of the canal will be finished by the first of October, hen boats will commence running from Albany to Buffalo--the two extreme ends of the magnificent work. We shall then be greeted with the enlivening sound of the bugle, the busy hum of enterprising boatmen, the arrival and departure of men of business, parties of pleasure, and all that variety which gives zest to life and encouragement to enterprise--in a word, Buffalo will feel the same effects which have hitherto operated like enchantment on the growth of many other villages on the line of the Canal.
