BARQUE. -- The hull of the steamer GREAT BRITAIN having been purchased during the last winter from the Hon. John Hamilton, by Mr. McKenzie, has been fitted up and rigged as a barque, intended for the timber trade on this lake. The appearance of a barque on our waters is quite a novelty, and combined with the neatness of her appearance, has attracted a good deal of attention. On Saturday last the new Barque was re-named, the owners selecting the name of ELEONORA. Yesterday the ELEONORA left port for Niagara, there to be hauled out on the railway. The ELEONORA is about 600 tons measurement. We wish in common with the people of Kingston generally, every success to Mr. McKenzie in his enterprise.
