p.3 The New Steam Yacht - The new yacht built for three gentlemen in this city by Capt. R. Davis, Westport, arrived in the harbour yesterday morning. Its dimensions are: 45 feet in length, with 8 1/2 feet beam. In the stern there is a 14 feet cabin, fitted with every convenience, and comfortably furnished. The windows are so arranged that it can be made completely open. Another 14 feet cabin is placed in the bow, so that the accommodation is extensive. The engine
occupies a space of six feet square, in the centre of the boat, and is quaranteed to give a speed of ten miles per hour. The engine was built by Black Bros., Brockville, and is a beautiful piece of work. The building of the boat is very creditable to Capt. Davis. A trial of speed was made yesterday, but owing to a defect in the steering chain, only about nine miles was made in an hour.
