p.2 The steamer Pierrepont has gone on the ways of the Marine Railway for repairs, and her place on the route between this city and Cape Vincent has been taken by the new steamer Watertown.

Floating The Schooner Rapid - The schooner Rapid rose yesterday afternoon by means of empty barrels which had been forced down into her hold. Calvin & Breck's schooners Liverpool and Minerva Cook were placed on either side of the Rapid, and late in the afternoon the Tug William towed them out from the railway with the intention of taking them over to Garden Island. The sterns of the vessels being towards the steamer, they were swung round in order to reverse them, the Rapid sinking over her gunwales, and kept up by the substantial chains with which she was secured to the two other schooners. In swinging round the Rapid got fast on that portion of the bar fronting the Marine Railway, but after a couple of hours "tugging" she was got off and towed over to Garden Island into shallow water, there to be pumped out and thoroughly floated previous to being put on the Marine Railway for repairs.
