A New Craft. - The propeller Avon, a new craft just built at Kingston, made her appearance in our harbor yesterday morning, on her first trip. She is a fine looking craft, of as large dimensions as can pass the Welland Canal locks, and is most substantially constructed of strong and heavy timber fastenings.

Her hull is divided into three water tight compartments by bulkheads. The new craft is one of the line of Messrs. Hooker, Pudnam & Co., plying between Montreal, Kingston, Toronto and the upper lakes. The Avon is intended expressly for the freighting business, and is now taking a cargo of flour at this port for Montreal. Her capacity is something over 3,500 barrels.
