Vessel Building and Repairing. - We should have sooner noticed the transfer of the Marine Railway Ship Yard, to the possession of Mr. George Goble. There is no yard possessing superior advantaged to this, and we are glad that Mr. Goble is the possessor, for his long experience and untiring industry makes him fully deserving of a prosperous and lucrative business, - such as he will build up.

With a powerful steam engine and ample supply of men, he is enabled to make any repairs on vessels which may be required on short notice. By means of the Railway, vessels are taken from the water without wrenching or racking them, and when completed they are so smoothly launched that there is no danger of causing them to spring a leak.

His stock of timber is choice and well-selected, and all who entrust vessels to him to repair, may rely upon a faithful performance of the work. We would call the special attention of vessel owners and captains to this

yard, for its advantages are great and should be generally known. The terms for repairs are moderate and easy, and we will guarantee that the terms of contract will be fully complied with.
