p.2 Steamer Corinthian - Mr. Gildersleeve's new steamer Corinthian is fast progressing toward completion, although a good deal of work is still to be done; she is expected to be ready for her trial trip shortly after the first of June. There are a large number of hands employed on her, and no time will be lost in completing her. The engine is expected to be all up in a few days, and a portion of the stained glass for her saloon has been put in. Her general appearance very much improves as the work progresses.

Steamer Banshee - The steamer Banshee will be handed over to Mr. Shackle of Montreal today, who has come up to receive her. She will not leave, however, until she is put in sailing condition, by performing certain necessary repairs, together with the usual spring work and overhauling.

-The steamer Kingston has been advertised to leave this port for Montreal on Saturday morning, but her departure is now changed to Sunday morning as per advertisement.

Imports - 24-26; Exports - 23-26.
