p.3 Napanee, June 15th - Mr. Cornelius Daly's large steam-dredge arrived this morning from Ogdensburg, N.Y., and has commenced working in our harbour. The dredge is in splendid order and is working finely. About three thousand dollars were granted by the Government last year, and a small amount by the corporation and private subscription, making in all about $5,000, which was expended between Napanee and the mouth of the river. A larger grant is expected this year, which will be expended to the best advantage, and enable vessels drawing eight and nine feet of water to pass in and out of the river without meeting with any obstructions. A decided improvement has been noticed in what has been expended in partly removing the sand bars, etc., which projects across the channel of the river. Mr. Daly, the contractor, is taking great pains in doing the work.
