--We learn from the Superintendent
of Repairs that the navigation between Lynchburg
and this city may be regarded as more secure than it was even before the fresh of June last.
The work at Daniel's Island
has progressed so far that no apprehension exists as to a supply of water on the Lynchburg
The improvement of the navigation between Lynchburg
is progressing as rapidly as the means at the disposal of the company will justify.
A number of hands have been impressed under authority given by the Government
, and the work will be pushed as rapidly as its importance demands.
The value of the canal as a medium for transportation of Government stores is more generally recognized than formerly, and the facilities thus afforded for a supply of iron from the mines of Rockbridge
to the manufactories in this city, will be duly appreciated by the Ordnance Department.
