p.2 Propeller Her Majesty - The propeller Her Majesty made a trial trip in the harbor on Saturday afternoon, the extensive alterations to her engines having been completed. It will be remembered that Messrs. Davidson & Doran brought her from Toronto early in April last, in order to convert her engines from high pressure into condensing, the great object being the saving of fuel and increase of speed. It is satisfactory to know that they have succeeded in both these requisites, those competent to judge asserting that the saving of fuel will be nearly one-half, and the engines with thirty-five pounds of steam give as many revolutions, and consequently much speed, as they did last year with sixty as pounds high pressure. The running time on Saturday from the lighthouse at Nine Mile Point to the Water Works wharf was thirty-five minutes.

Steamer Corinthian - The broken strap of the walking beam of the steamer Corinthian having been sent to Buffalo for repairs was received back last week ready to be attached to the skeleton beam now making at the foundry of Messrs. Davidson & Doran. A new piston and cylinder cover are also being made, and general repairs done, at the above establishment. It is fully expected that the Corinthian will be running in about three weeks from the present time.
