Kingston, April 4th, 1851.

We are pleased to see the indications of prosperity evinced in our town, by new buildings, foundries, increase of trade, and last, not least, the stir and buz always to be heard and seen in the ship yard of our worthy citizen, Mr. Shickeluna. We are pleased to see on the stocks two new vessels - one a schooner of 250 tons, the other a propeller of 400 tons burden. We have been highly pleased also to find that a double Dry Dock has been made by Shickeluna, which will facilitate repairs considerably. Good ship carpenters are seldom disappointed in looking up employment in this town...... [St. Catharines Journal]
