p.3 Change Of Positions - Capt. E. Beaupre, formerly of the schr. Oliver Mowat, will next season command the schr. Grantham; Capt. Saunders, late of the Eureka, will in all probability take the position vacated by Capt. Beaupre on the Oliver Mowat; Capt. McKee will be master of the schr. Singapore this year.

Lowering Of the St. Lawrence - American engineers don't believe cutting Gallop rapids was the cause; in 1846 and 1848 water was as low.

Whats The News? - Folger Bros. have sold Eureka to a Captain at Owen Sound.

The Tay Navigation Company is defunct. Their dams have been broken and their works abandoned. No interest has been paid on the Government loan of $7,764, although someone on the Rideau Canal collected toll in the name of the Company.

Marine News - The schr. Gulnair is receiving $500 worth of repairing at Hamilton, and considerable work is being done on the Ella Murton, and propellers Celtic, Lake Michigan and Lake Ontario. The Herbert Dudley is having her spring overhauling by Messrs. Richardson & Son, of this city.

At Picton the steambarge Saxon is being overhauled at an expense of $1,500, and when she again floats she will represent about $8,000. The schooner Flora Carveth is also receiving large repairs at a cost of $3,000. The scow Clara White, of Deseronto, is being extensively repaired to class B 1. Her repairs will cost about $3,000.
