The making of the Riverside's new shaft is called the quickest work of the kind on record in this city. The shaft was broken on Sunday. On Monday the order was given at Baugh's steam forge for a new shaft 12 feet 6 inches long and 12½ inches in diameter. Work was commenced at 7 o'clock a.m. and the shaft was shipped to the Riverside Ironworks at 4 p.m. the same day. It was then turned and fitted, and the steamer left the wharf with repairs completed 60¾ hours after the time the order was given.
