Full Text

The steamer CORONA, which went into drydock yesterday for a general examination and cleaning up, surprised all who saw her when the water was pumped out of the dock. Her hull was found to be in splendid condition. Not a splinter or soft spot could be found and when the barnacles and seaweed were scrapped off she was as clean as a whistle and as smooth as a die. Her hull is a remarkably pretty model and surprised all the vessel men who looked her over. She will resume her place in the line this afternoon after undergoing boiler inspection and will hereafter be regarded with increased respect by the marine men about the river.
