Description
Full Text

      The schooner L.D. BULLOCK is in Goble & Macfarlane's dry dock being caulked. Goble & Macfarlane have received ten of the straightest and prettiest masts we have seen in some time. The masts were cut in Canada, near Georgian Bay.
      The schooner TOM. SIMMS has received a new mainmast at Goble & Macfarlane's. After the old mast was unstepped and was assuming a horizontal position, the head of the mast broke just below the hounds and fell upon the rails of the schooner JOHN MAGEE. During the morning two men had been at work on the crosstrees, not knowing the danger they were in standing on a rotten mast.
