p.2 New Steamer - Mr. C.F. Gildersleeve's new steamer, intended to run between Picton and Belleville, is rapidly progressing towards completion. She was built at Glasgow, Scotland, taken apart and sent to Kingston, where the parts are again put together. Her length over all is 120 feet, breadth of hull, nineteen feet six inches, and breadth over all thirty-two feet. She is provided with iron frames and steel plating, and wooden planking on her bottom. She will have an inclined compound engine under her deck with high pressure cylinder, eighteen by thirty-six inches, and low pressure thirty-six by thirty-six, with small feathering wheels thirteen feet diameter. She will have ample accommodation on her bow deck for freight, and aft for passengers, her arrangements being very roomy. Her promenade deck will run the whole length of the vessel with seats for passengers and shade deck above, which will make her an excellent excursion steamer. She is expected to draw about three feet of water, and will probably be fast and able to make easily thirteen miles an hour. Her owner has decided upon naming her the Maud.

The Steamer Aurora - Messrs. Folger Brothers and J. Swift & Co. intend running the steamer Aurora between Kingston and Gananoque this season.
