Herald of Freedom & Torch Light, 27 November, 1872

Chesapeake and Ohio Canal Receipts.—

The receipts of the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal Company for the week ending Saturday, November 9th, were : Cumberland, $15,240.81; Georgetown, $1,734 ; Hancock, $206.20 ; Williamsport, $64.39. Total, $17,245.40.

The receipts for the week ending, Nov. 16 were from Cumberland $7,264.57; Georgetown, $1,700; Hancock, $167.27; Williamsport $158.69; total $9,289 50.

An Annapolis Correspondent of the Americansays that it is thought, in consequence of the epizootic among the horses of the Canal, the receipts will fall off about $12,000 this month. He also says it is the determination of the President to keep the Canal open for navigation until he is compelled to close it on account of ice. Isn’t this done every year?
