The Dredge - The Napanee Standard says that this useful machine has been engaged in dredging the river for the past two weeks, and will continue doing so until the close of the present week. The money necessary for carrying out the work so long at the expense of $100 per day of ten hours, was given partly at the cost of the town, and partly by the contributions of private parties. A good deal of the dirt was deposited on Stevenson's wharf, but most of it was conveyed in barges by the tug Sarah Daly to the mouth of the river and there deposited. At present the dredge is at work near Rathbun's old wharf, and is to go as far as Diamond's grist mill.
