p.1 Repairing The Boats - At the beginning of the new year the Folger Bros. will commence overhauling their steamers. To some of them extensive repairs will be made while the improvements to others will be light. The str. Maud will receive a new engine to be built at the locomotive works and new machinery will be made at the Kingston foundry for the str. St. Lawrence.

Incidents Of The Day - The schr. Philo Bennett, from Cape Vincent light, arrived this morning.

Mr. Power hauled the steamer Alert from Morrisburg on the ways at the foot of Gore street. Machinery for the steamer will be manufactured at the locomotive works.
