The Canal Board.

The President and Directors of the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal will meet in Washington to-day to make their appointments. We are indebted to A. K. STAKE, Esq., the efficient Superintendent of the Canal, for a copy of the twenty-eighth annual Report of the President and Directors of the Company to the Stock-holders, dated June 2d, 1856, from which we learn that to the 31st of May, 49,274 tons of coal have been shipped on the Canal, and that the tolls collected upon all articles amounted to $36,729.87
