Gathered in the Local Harbor. The steamer Sailor Boy finished the season Saturday, December 15th, when the work of placing her in ordinary was begun. The season has been an unusually busy one and Capt. Hard is glad of an opportunity to take a much needed rest. During the winter months the Sailor Boy will undergo some changes. The pilot house will be moved forward six feet and raised a foot. Two staterooms will be put in aft of the captain's room, and these will be finished in oak, nicely furnished and provided with modern improvements. The quarters of the mate and engineers will be moved to the fo'castle, which will be converted into the most agreeable and comfortable quarters on the boat. By thus providing sleeping apartments it will be possible to accommodate passengers who desire to make a round trip, as was often the case during the past season, but the craft had not the accommodations.
