p.2 The Graving Dock - Quite a number of men are engaged at work on the Graving Dock, excavating the stone at the upper end of it. It is intended that work shall be carried on all winter, and this will prove a great boon to many men who would otherwise be compelled to be idle.

p.3 Marine Notes - The canal reports have closed for the season and vessels are hurrying from all quarters to their winter stations.

The schr. Blanche was got off the shoal yesterday at Pultneyville. There are 2,700 bushels of wheat of her cargo saved. The rest of it is badly damaged.

The steamer Queen will be launched from the ways today, and the tug Lady Franklin will be hauled out for repairs to her machinery, which got out of order during the cold snap. The schr. Denmark is also awaiting repairs, and will be hauled out after the Lady Franklin is repaired.
