p.2 Overhauling Their Barges - The M.T. Co. have decided to enlarge several of their barges during the winter. The Oneida and Cayuga are at present on the marine railway, receiving general repairs. Each will be lengthened 30 feet, which addition will increase their carrying capacity from 18,000 to 30,000 bushels. The barge Lancaster, of the same company, was launched at Portsmouth today, after being overhauled from stem to stern. The barge Kansas will be hauled out today on the railway vacated by the Lancaster, and generally repaired.

p.3 Incidents Of The Day - The sloop Grace is being rebuilt in Belleville on a new model. She will be lengthened four feet forward and newly planked throughout.

p. Flanigan, engineer on the str. Spartan, has arrived, bringing with him flattering testimonials from the captain and others. He stood by his post during some of the most tempestuous storms experienced.
