In the Marine Railway Shipyard, (Kingston) the propeller LORD BYRON, building for Captain Patterson, is in a very forward state, and will be ready for launching in a few weeks. The boiler made at the foundry opposite, has already been put on board. This propeller, as we have already stated, is about 300 tons burthen, and will be propelled by a high pressure engine of 140 horse power. On the railway, the steamers, CANADA and PRINCE EDWARD are hauled out. The latter is undergoing some repairs, and extensive additional accommodation will be provided on board the former. Both the CANADA and the GILDERSLEEVE are being furnished with upper cabins, upon the model of the American boats, and we believe that a similar -?- has been made to the HIGHLANDER at Cornwall. The Messrs. Ives are engaged in getting ready a new steam ferry-boat, and in sheathing and otherwise repairing the SUPERIOR and INVINCIBLE, timber vessels. -- (part)
