Marine Intelligence

The docks are not quite as lively today as they were yesterday, there being only one or two departures, and no arrivals. The prop. Kincardine left last evening for Belleville, in order to commence her regular trips. Two schooners were also towed up. The prop. Argyle arrived this morning at Garden Island with a large schooner in tow. The propeller had her flags flying in honour of her first trip of the season. She came from Sarnia, where she was laid up for the winter.

The launching of the steamer Algerian was commenced last night, and the men worked until about ten o'clock when they quit work, intending to complete it this morning. This was done without the slightest accident, and the hull was towed down to the berth allotted to it at the foot of Clarence street, where she is expected to be finished about the middle of June.
