Now come under our notice, and a fine class they are. First we visit the PRINCE EDWARD, owned by Mrs. McNab and C. Anderson of this place, and commanded by Captain R. Buick. She has been newly cabined, and newly decked and painted. As soon as the ice will admit she will clear for Collingwood with a cargo of wheat from the whare house of Messrs, Miller & Son, in which trade she will continue for a time, after which she will be employed in the North Shore
lumber trade. Her carrying capacity is 800 bushels and she is valued at $8,500. Then we visit the PHOEBE CATHERINE, Captain T. Crolley She has been newly painted, has been supplied with part new canvass, and has been thoroughly overhauled, She will be employed in carrying grain to Collingwood in the forepart of the season, after which she will be engaged in the lumber trade from the North Shore to Sarnia and Windsor. She carries 8,000 bushels of grain, is a staunch and good sailing vessel, and is owned by Messrs Park & Bishop of this town. We cross to the MAPLE LEAF, which vessel has received new rails and a new deck, has been painted and overhauled, and presents a very neat appearance. She has a capacity for carrying 7,000 bushels of grain, in which trade she will be employed during the first of the season Captain James Foot is her master, and Mr. James Sutherland her owner. The ELIZABETH comes next. She is owned by Captain McKenzie and Mr. Goldering, who purchased her from Mr. Broders when she was ashore near South Bay, Manitoulin, She was hauled off the rock, repaired and made perfectly seaworthy; she is neatly fitted up and will be employed in general freight
