p.2 Marine Notes

Holcomb & Stewart - The prop. America from Toledo lightened 2,500 bush. corn and proceeded to Montreal. The barge Jet left last night with 24,000 bush. oats and wheat.

St. Lawrence & Chicago Forwarding Co. - The prop. Prussia yesterday loaded 100 tons of rails for Duluth. The schr. Oliver Mowat arrived from Toledo with 18,100 bush. corn; and schr. Erie Belle from the same port, brought 18,828 bush. corn.

James Swift - Called - Spartan from Montreal, Norseman from Charlotte, Passport from Hamilton, and Oswego Belle from Oswego.

The Hyderabad - This new schooner was getting her sails bent this morning, and she will probably leave on Saturday for Chicago, with nearly 500 tons of salt. Men competent to judge say that this schooner is the best built vessel ever launched in Kingston, and is probably the most substantial on the whole chain of lakes. One of her great advantages is that she is as well adapted for the ocean trade as for inland navigation, and would prove an admirable vessel for trading between Australia and Canada, should that ever begin, of which there is now good prospects. Mr. Power thinks the Hyderabad the best vessel he ever built during the many years he has been engaged in shipbuilding.

On The Ways - The tug H.F. Bronson, belonging to the Montreal Transportation Company, has been hauled out at the Marine Railway to receive a new wheel.

A steam drill named Far Down owned by Mr. C.F. Dunbar, contractor, was successfully launched at Port Colborne yesterday afternoon. It was built by Mr. Stanton, shipbuilder of that place.
