Along the Docks

A new vessel about fifty feet over all is ready for sea at Fair Haven. She is owned by Charles Hill of Fair Haven, is named the Clara Hill and will be sailed by her owner. She was converted into a vessel from a Port Hope yacht. Messrs. H.W. and B.F. Greene did the fitting out. She will probably engage in fishing and trading.*

An extra large force of men are at work on the new vessel being built at Goble & Macfarlane's for M.J. Cummings, and the work is rapidly being pushed forward. She is almost entirely planked and today men are putting on the "shutter."
