p.2 Steam Dredge - Last night the tug Sarah Daly arrived here from Picton with the steam dredge J.E. Daly and 2 barges. She was to have commenced service today at the Montreal Transportation Company's wharf. In the absence of the owner we are unable to ascertain the length of time she will remain employed in this harbour; but the News reporter was informed by one of the men engaged thereon that she would likely be kept dredging in this vicinity for a considerable time, probably the whole of the autumn. Such a piece of information will be welcomed by the shipping community. The dredge is a good one, competent to perform the work required of it rapidly and satisfactorily.
