p.1 The Shannon - the old Greenway rebuilt - which was launched last fall and which has been in process of fitting during the winter, is rapidly approaching completion. The internal arrangements of this vessel have been in several respects changed from the original with a view to giving greater convenience and comfort. Her hull was remodelled in such a way as to cause her to be much steadier than formerly. The furnace has been lengthened in order to avoid the necessity of cutting the fuel less than cordwood measurement, and the engine and boiler has been thoroughly renovated and overhauled, which it is thought will give her increased speed. She will be ready for business in about a fortnight, and will, in all probability, be under the command of Mr. G. Dame. We trust that George, who is a jolly, good-natured fellow may meet with that success which his pluck deserves in his first venture as captain. The Shannon will run between Belleville, Napanee and Picton, going to the former place on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and latter on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.
