p.8 Incidents Of The Day - The schr. Blanche, of Port Colborne, which was injured during a gale in the fall, will be repaired here.

On Wednesday James Davis, shipbuilder, will put a gang of men at work on the schr. Blanche for the purpose of giving her a thorough overhauling. She will receive new stanchions, covering deck, planking on outside, windlasses, etc.

The Montreal Transportation Company began repairs on the barge Duluth today at the Portsmouth marine railway. A number of men will be required, and prospects of work generally are good this winter. Wages will have an upward tendency.
