p.3 The Empress of India - This steamer, which damaged one of her paddles going down the river with the excursion last Tuesday morning, is being repaired at the shipyard. She will be ready to go to Toronto to resume her trips early next week. We hear high commendations of the carrying capacity of this boat, the only complaint being that she is a little slow.
