p.2 Yacht and Shipbuilding - The hull of a yacht of about 25 tons, building for several gentlemen of this city, and laid down upon the model of the celebrated yacht America, is far advanced, and we notice that the keel of another yacht, of 50 tons, has just been laid, the latter vessel is for a gentleman at Cobourg. Mr. Pigeon is the builder. The keels of a schooner and a propeller have just been laid in the Marine Railway shipyard. The large Railway steamer is progressing.

Correction - re murder in yesterday's newspaper - the sailors were arrested at Toronto, not Kingston.

The Ocean Wave - A number of witnesses have been examined before the Coroner's jury in this case, but the inquiry has not yet terminated. The jury have been adjourned for another week, in order that additional testimony may be attained.
