The Picton Gazette says: The steamer John Greenway is beginning to look like herself again, and will doubtless be in good running order next month. A higher rate of speed than she has ever yet attained is promised. The Greenway was always considered fast, but when we consider that the arrangement of her machinery is under the supervision of well-known superior machinists such as Messrs. Dame & Jeffers, we are not prepared to say that she will not make better time than she has done in the past.

p.3 A beautiful schooner, built by Mr. Wm. Redmond - the popular and reliable ship-builder - and owned by Capt. Cummins Hume and others, will be launched on Saturday. Her capacity is some 13,000 bushels. She is being furnished by all the modern appliances, such as wire rigging, etc., and it is expected will be ready to sail away as soon as launched. She is in every respect first-class, reflecting great credit upon her builder and owner. [Picton Gazette]
