p.2 Portsmouth - The two splendid seagoing sail vessels now building at the Portsmouth shipyard are progressing finely. The outside planking of one is nearly finished, and that of the other will soon begin. The keel of a third vessel will shortly be laid. A large scow of superior workmanship is also being built at the same place for the wood service; and Mr. Beaupre is finishing a scow of great strength, also for the wood trade, to be impelled both by wind and steam, and intended to ply up and down the river as well as on the Rideau Canal. A number of sailing vessels are being fitted out, painted and repaired for the spring service, and the prosperous little village is all alive with the sounds of native industry, actively preparing for, and doing its full share towards initiating, the summer campaign on the lakes, the river and the high seas.

The Crossing To Wolfe Island and Cape Vincent - ice-boats being used.
