Northern Canal

The last stone of the Northern canal, was laid by Gov. Clinton, President of the Board of Canal Commissioners, on the 28th Nov. in presence of a great assemblage of people. The Canal is connected with the Hudson at Waterford, at the head of sloop navigation, by three beautiful locks of white marble, through which the company passed in boats.

The Northern Canal is now finished; a boat arrived the above mentioned day at Waterford, from Lake Ontario, by way of the St. Lawrence and Sorell rivers and Lake Champlain! The undiverted energies of the state can now be turned to the speedy completion of the Erie Canal.
