Oswego Commercial Advertiser & Times, April 12, 1866

      The continuance of the warm weather creates considerable activity in the harbor and dock yards. Vessels and canal boats are undergoing repairs so as to be ready for the coming season, which is opening so early, and the air is filled with the multitudinous sounds of labor.

      Miller & Co.'s Boat Yard. - The enterprising firm of S. Miller & co., boat builders of this city, are doing a flourishing business the present season. They have just launched from their yard one of the best "lakers' ever put upon the canals of this State, the "CANARSIE" Littlejohn, Dane & Co., owners, and they have now upon the stocks, for the same parties, to be launched in a week or two, another of the same class of canal craft.
      They are also doing an extensive business in way of rebuilding, repairing, and boat work generally. Probably no other yard in the State builds better boats, or turns out better work generally, and it gives ups pleasure to record their prosperity.
