Inspection of Ships' Hulls - The Department of Marine has instituted a board for examination of candidates for the position of Inspector of ships' hulls on the St. Lawrence and Great Lakes. The reason for this step is the numerous casualties of late years to vessels supposed to be unseaworthy. An examination is now in progress, Captain Scott, of Kingston, being one of the candidates.
