Chatham, May 12 - The continued wet weather for the past fortnight has somewhat delayed the shipbuilders in pushing on their work, and one or two steamers will be behind times in completion. The new propeller lately launched belonging to Captain Malcomson sets well in the water. Her boilers are not ready, so delay will occur in finishing. Messrs. Beatty & Co.'s new steamer for the Sarnia route is nearly ready to receive the machinery necessary to put in before launching. Messrs. Simpson & Chisholm, in addition to laying the keel for the second steamer for Beatty's Line, have contracted to build a propeller for a Kincardine firm. The steam barge building by Messrs. Hyslop & Ronald to carry 40,000 bushels grain, is progressing slowly.
