Canal Affairs.

We understand that the boats are leaving Cumberland without any coal, the owners being determined not to boat coal for less than $1.25 per ton, that being the lowest price at which they can afford to bring it. The water is very low, and there are about 30 boats tied up at Dam No. 6. The Canal Company have had Mr. Patterson, who was formerly employed as Chief Engineer of the Canal, engaged in making arrangements, &c., for the purpose of repairing this dam.
