Directions have been received for the immediate extension of the present pier at St. Michael's Mount; the foundation-stones are ready, and will be put down the first favourable opportunity. It is expected that the whole will be completed before the ensuing winter. The depth of water by this alteration will be increased to 15 feet, at neap tides, and to 21 feet at spring tides. The pier will then be capable of affording shelter to nearly 200 sail of vessels, and will, no doubt, be the means of preserving many lives and much property, as it will afford a secure shelter to vessels in cases of distress; it will also add much to the beauty of the place.

It is intended to apply for a bill, in the next session of parliament, for improving Falmouth harbour, widening the entrance into the town of Falmouth from Penryn, and altering the road from Truro to the latter town, so as to diminish the distance, and avoid some of the hills that are crossed by the present road between those places. A new line of canal has been surveyed by Mr. EDGCUMBE, engineer, of Liskeard, from the canal at Lower St. Columb to near the silver mine in Newlyn; and a branch to near the Blue Anchor at St. Enoder. This undertaking is likely to be of much benefit.
