Messrs. Simpson & Chisholm have entered into arrangements for the construction of three new propellers at their yard at North Chatham, the blocks for the keels of two of which are already laid. One is to be constructed for Mr. Malcomson, of Dundas, and is to be of full canal size. The other two are to be large propellers, 220 feet keel each, and are to be constructed for Messrs. Beattie, proprietors of the line of steamers from Sarnia to Fort William and Duluth, and we presume are to be put on that route. The great facilities which Mr. D.R. Van Allen has perfected at his saw mill for producing ship planks and timbers, makes this one of the best places for shipbuilding in the Dominion, and those in want of first-rate craft are beginning to find it out.
