      Quickest Time On Record - The propeller ENTERPRISE, W.R.R. Line, left Kingston at 4:30 on Wednesday and arrived at Port Dalhousie eighteen minutes past six Thursday morning, making the passage in 13 hours and 48 minutes. The ENTERPRISE is now using a wheel manufactured by Davidson & Down, Kingston Foundry, Kingston, which they claim to be a very superior screw. We the undersigned, find it to beat her former wheel, which was a Philadelphia one, about one hour in her run. (P. McGrath, Captain; J.E. Bell, Engineer)
