p.2 Shipbuilding - It will be seen from the following, which we cut from the Leader, that Toronto is following the example of Kingston in the matter of building ships for ocean navigation:-

"Messrs. Hayes, Brother & Co., are building a ship for Ocean navigation, in this city, near the Northern Railroad terminus on Front Street. Her dimensions are 162 feet between perpendiculars, 31 feet beam, and 17 feet 6 inches depth of hold. She is being built entirely of the best white oak, copper fastened, and will be, we understand, in every respect a first class vessel. Her builder is Mr. A. McFie, who has had many years' experience in the largest building yards in Quebec." [Leader]
