Another break in the canal

We understand that a culvert on the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal, near the Point of Rocks, gave way on Monday night last, which, it is thought, cannot be repaired under three weeks. Forty-two boats, all heavily laden with Flour and Produce, are lying at this point unable to pass. This is sad information for the people of Washington County.
