p.2 Shipping - Business seems brisk at the Marine Railway yard. Both ways are occupied by schooners for caulking or repairs. The three-master, whose keel was laid a short time ago is progressing rapidly under the hands of the workmen, and may be launched next month. A large dredge is in course of construction for the government. At Morton's, on Saturday, we noticed that what remains of the propeller Inkermann, was about to proceed to Ogdensburgh, there to be rebuilt, while the beautiful clipper schooner Queen of the Lakes was about to cast off for the purpose of taking in a cargo of iron at Walker & Berry's for her first trip up the lake.

p.3 Imports - 15.
