p.2 More Preparations - We have been informed that Major-Gen. Sir Fenwick Williams, commander of the Forces in Canada, has written to the owner of the schooner St. George, in this port, asking whether in the event of their being recquired for the public service next spring, that vessel, as well as the one now building at the Marine Railway, both would be placed at the service of the British Government. The reply was promptly, in the affirmative, just what might be expected from the well-known loyalty of the gallant owner. We do not pretend to be well posted up on matters of this sort, but, if the report be true, we will be pardoned for saying that no great respect for red tapeism has been shown by Sir Fenwick.
