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 are about 80 boats tied up at Dam. No. 5. 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.
