p.2 Repairs To the Steamer Pierrepont - The steamer Pierrepont was yesterday launched from the ways of the Marine Railway, where she has been undergoing extensive repairs. A good deal of planking has been done to her bottom, as well as to other parts of her hull, both fore and aft, and also to her forward deck. Every doubtful plank, in short has been removed, and whole timbers have been put in wherever needed. Several new knees have been placed under her guards, and the old ones strengthened. The repairs are not yet fully completed, the workmen being still employed on her deck and other upper portions. These repairs, with the new sheeting, caulking, painting, etc., will make the steamer perfectly sea-worthy, and in many respects nearly as good as new.

The Schooner Rapid -The schooner Rapid, to which the accident occurred some time ago while being towed out from the harbor laden with stone for Ottawa, has been brought over from Garden Island and taken the place on the Marine Railway vacated by the steamer Pierrepont. A survey will be held on her hull, when the amount of damage done will be ascertained and repaired.
