p.3 A Steamer's Troubles - There is reported to be trouble in connection with the repairs to the steamer Rothesay at Ogdensburg. It is said the proprietors of the Marine Railway at that place have so much work on hand as to make the exact time at which the Rothesay can go on a matter of doubt, both the Sam Cooke and the Armstrong having the preference over her. An officer of the Rothesay is of the opinion that the railway will not be in proper shape for the handling of such a vessel, in the event of which she is likely to go to Kingston or Garden Island. The repairs to be made upon her will entail an expense of upwards of $3,000, which will make her an American vessel and attain an end long desired by her present managers.
