St. Catharines, July 26 - On Saturday afternoon last [July 24] Captain Miller launched from his yard in Port Dalhousie one of the largest vessels ever built on the Welland Canal. She is named "THE ARK". Her dimensions are 176 feet 6 inches keel; 179 over all; 36 feet 7 inches beam; average depth of hold 11 feet.

      The proposal to establish a dry dock at Port Dalhousie, or between there and Port Colborne, does not appear to be favorably received in marine circles, owing to the fact that large vessels could not pass the first lock at Port Dalhousie.
