At the Shipyard - The barque British Lion has hauled alongside the wharf to get in a new mizen mast. She will ship a new rudder, and be otherwise repaired. Mr. Kinghorn's composite steamer is progressing rapidly, and the planking of Henderson's barge has been commenced.

Messrs. Power & Co. have lately erected a shears at the wharf, which will prove a great acquisition to the trade, there being nothing of the kind anywhere else in the port. For shipping and unshipping masts, removing the boilers from steamers and lifting heavy weights generally connected with vessels, the shears will provide a great convenience.
