p.3 The Dry Dock Scheme - Mr. Powers is trying to raise sufficient money with which to complete his dry dock. He has corresponded with gentlemen in Toronto, who are desirous of taking shares. The sum necessary to finish the work is $25,000.

Incidents Of The Day - The excursion steamer, to ply out of Kingston harbor, is named the Morning Star. A route has already been laid out. Capt. Craig will be in command and A. Morland will be steward. These two appointments are popular.

The steam barge Saxon, lying at the Kingston Foundry slip, will as soon as the ice breaks, be hauled out at Powers' shipyard for repairs.
