Full Text

At Kingston: Three large iron tanks are being placed in the three-masted schooner FANNY CAMPBELLL, which has been bought for the coal-oil trade. The schooner will not be likely to do anything in the new line of business this year. She will trade directly between Sarnia and Montreal, being loaded and unloaded by steam.
