p.2 The Passport - The repairs making on the hull of the Passport are not yet completed, but it is expected that she will be ready to leave for Montreal early this week.

The Shipyards - The prospects are that all the shipyards in and about Kingston will have a busy season. The work, however, will probably be confined to repairing, not more than one or two, if any, orders being expected for building. The only vessel at present on the stocks, is one for Messrs. E. Berry & Co., at their yard in Portsmouth, and which has been already noticed in the News. Operations at Messrs. Calvin & Breck's yard on Garden Island will be confined altogether to rebuilding and repairing, and it is said that a new vessel will be constructed at the Marine Railway. The price of timber is fifty per cent higher this year than last, and it is therefore improbable that ship-building this season will be carried on to so great an extent as in former years.

p.3 Imports - 20.
