p.1 letter to Editor asking for information on all the new captains to be included in the "Spring Walks."


This fine Propeller made a Trial Trip round the Harbor of Kingston, on Tuesday last. As she is controlled, if not entirely owned by Mr. Donald McIntosh, that gentleman did the amiable in a very handsome manner, and invited a large party of his friends, including many of the Civic Dignitaries, to take pot luck with him on board. The pot luck consisted of a very excellent cold collation, with the necessary accompaniments, and upwards of fifty gentlemen sat down to the first table and enjoyed themselves as good fellows should. The health of Mr. McIntosh was drunk, as was also that of Mr. Morton, and the party got home safe, sound and happy at dusk. The Inkermann is a fine large vessel, and goes at the rate of eight knots an hour.
