At Clark's Dry dock the stm. DOVE is having radical chages wrought in her. Her old engine and boilers, which were too heavy for her, have been taken out, and those of the SUSAN WARD put in their place. They are also put farther forward, so that she now trims on an even keel, and draws 1 ft. less water. It is expected that the change will increase her speed and improve her in every way. Her upper works are also to be remodeled, giving her more cabin room. About $5,000 will be expended on her. The engine and boiler taken out of her will be put into a new boat now building at Marine City for the River and Lake Shore Steamboat Co. - Detroit Free Press.
