p.2 Propeller Her Majesty - The new screw for the propeller Her Majesty has been cast at the foundry of Messrs. Davidson and Doran, and is ready to relieve the old one, which will hardly be replaced here. They will not risk drawing her out upon the ways of the marine railway, and the same objection still applies to those at Portsmouth. The probability is that Her Majesty, so soon as her cargo is complete, will have to will have to steam it up to St. Catherines, where she can be taken into the dry dock and have her screw replaced.

Steamer Watertown - This steamer has not yet made her trial trip, although it was given out that she would do so a week since. The iron work is all complete, and the engine has been worked at the dock; the delay is altogether owing to the carpenter's work not having progressed as fast as it was expected it would have done. The wood work finished, the Watertown will be ready to take her place on her destined route; and some day this week her trial trip will almost certainly be made.

Schooner Rapid - The process of raising the stone from the sunken schooner Rapid is steadily going on. A couple of expert divers have been engaged, who attract a good deal of attention, great numbers of persons going down to the wharf to watch the operation going on. Messrs. Calvin & Breck have undertaken to relieve the vessel of her cargo and raise her, after which she will be drawn up on the marine railway for any necessary repairs. The stone is being hoisted into Calvin & Breck's schooner Liverpool.
