p.8 Incidents Of The Day - Extensive repairs are being made to the barge Southampton. She was framed in 1858 at Garden Island, and planked by Capt. John Donnelly and Capt. Booth in 1860. Yesterday Capt. Donnelly went down to the wharf and was more than surprised to find the frames as sound as when they were placed in position thirty years ago. She was the best built schooner afloat. The father of Capt. Booth was her first commander.
