From the Richmond Dispatch, 11/5/1862, p. 1, c. 4

Break in the Canal. During Monday night a break of a very decided kind occurred in the canal above the Tredegar Iron Works, by which the water was let out of the section above that place. A gang of workmen made all things right by 1 o'clock yesterday, at which time the water was rushing into the basin with its accustomed velocity. The accident delayed navigation but a few hours.
