p.2 City Trade & Manufacturers - The Kingston Marine Railway appears resuscitated to all the vigor that it displayed in years gone by. The managers have now ninety men engaged in making repairs on the various vessels in the harbor and on the ways. Capt. Gaskin's Bay of Quinte has received a thorough outfit, and will start for Toronto once the ice leaves the lake. The keel of a new vessel is about to be laid for this gentleman, and judging from the lines of her model, she will be a clipper, she will be a clipper calculated to sustain the reputation of Mr. Thurston. Her dimensions are 115 feet keel, 25' beam, 10' 6 " depth of hold and her capacity 350 tons.
