p.2 The Marine Railway & Shipyard - This establishment presents just now one of the busiest scenes in the city, and thus far the calls upon its resources have been the means of furnishing steady employment to a large number of hands. Several vessels are undergoing repairs at the yard, while others are waiting their turn. The propeller Bruno is on the marine railway, where she has been for some time undergoing a thorough course of repairs, which, it is expected, will be completed by Thursday next. The schooner Annie Minnes, Capt. Taylor, has just had her deck caulked, and left the yard today. The tug Mary Ann is undergoing some general repairs, while her wheel shaft is receiving particular attention. The new schooner built at the yard, and still on the stocks, is now completed and ready to launch. She is painted and has shipped her lower masts and a portion of her standing rigging. She will, in all probability, be committed to the water in the early part of the approaching month. Several scows are waiting to receive the attention of the yard.

p.3 Arrivals - 28.
