Dry Docks, Lifting Locks, and Canal Boat Railways. - The new Dry Dock commenced last season by Mr. Miller, in the Cove, is now completed and ready for business. Mr. Miller has associated himself in the general business of shipbuilding, boat building and repairing, and sawing lumber, Messrs. Willard A. Kitts and Thomas. Moore, and the name and style of the firm is now, Miller, Kitts & Moore.

The facilities they now possess for dock, repairing and building, propellers, vessels and canal boats, have never been equaled in our city or on the Lake. Their new Dry Dock is complete in all respects and works to a charm. The largest sized propellers can be taken out high and dry ready for repairing in an hour, and at the same time the lifting dock can be pumped out and another vessel or boat raised out of the water ready for a similar purpose.

They have also two canal boat railways for taking out boats. Their great facilities for the prosecution of this important Branch of the business has required a large investment of capital, and has been much needed to keep pace with the growing commerce and business of this port. The new firm embraces much of experience, energy and skill in this line of business, and will be found equal to every demand upon their services. Oswego is now prepared to accommodate at short notice, all business in this line that may come to her from any quarter.
